Good Fences #118

I will let Gemilyn be my fence model this week.

Here's the link-up.

Hello, I am sure horses have feelings and sweet Gem is missing Zim. She is a lovely model, pretty fence scenes. Thanks for hosting. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day and the weekend ahead!

Brian King said...

Oh, how pretty! Looks like a painting. I'm sure she misses her friend.

Breathtaking said...

Hello Theresa!:) I did n't know about the passing of your beloved horse Zim, I am so sorry Theresa. These scenes of Gem are lovely.:)

NatureFootstep said...

we have 2 white horses like this one not far from here but they carry the protection against flies so they are not fun to photograph. Nice fence :)

Debbie at Travel with Intent said...

Beautiful shot
And she looks very well

Cranberry Morning said...

What a beautiful photo of Gem. I'm so sorry to hear of Zim passing. It's got to be so hard on both you all and the remaining Gem. I always wonder about their suffering loneliness. So very sad.

Lea said...

Beautiful horse, and beautiful scenery
So very sorry about Zim

Kate said...

What a beauty, and how hard it must be to lose a friend like Zim!

Sandra said...

so beautiful and i know she misses him as much as you do...

Anvilcloud said...

Nice model. Sorry for her and your loss.

Nancy Chan said...

Gemilyn is beautiful and I think deep down she misses Zim too. Have a lovely day! And thank you for hosting Good Fences.

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

She is a beautiful animal, and so sad that she is alone. Intuitively you know that she would better cope with the loss. With our daughter's Tibetan Mastiffs the same was true, except that the younger female (Sagua) passed and her "brother" (Agramonte) indeed felt her loss. For some reason he started licking his paws, perhaps displacing his grief, and this caused sores They quickly brought a new male TM puppy (Siboney) into their home and the two get along splendidly-- and the paw-licking stopped. Sorry I missed you the past couple of weeks but just got back to my PC in Illinois with piles of photos to review and correspondence to manage. Thanks so much for posting!

Bob Bushell said...

Poor Gem, love her.

Naquillity said...

Miss Val's Creations said...

She is so beautiful. I am happy to hear she is doing ok. :)

Jedidja said...

This horse is so beautiful to see. I would write a story when I see such a dream horse. Horses also mourn ...

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I'm glad she's doing okay. She sure looks beautiful and cool in her white coat! Enjoy your day sweet friend. Hugs, Diane

DJan said...

It's good to see Gem still hanging in there. I also miss Zim, strange as it seems. He was a part of my life, too. Isn't the internet a wonderful place? :-)

A Quiet Corner said...

GREAT photo, Tex...bit I am still too heartbroken for your loss...:( JP

Michelle said...

Animals become our family. Sorry to hear about Zim's passing.

Wayne said...

It's good to know she is doing OK. Clearly, animals form close bonds with each other as well as with humans.

joeh said...

Kinda sad, I'm sure she misses him a lot.

Denise inVA said...

Gem is a beautiful horse and these are wonderful photos. Glad she is doing well. We are all connected to our animal family in so many ways. Sad for her and for you.

Dear Gem, posing so sweetly in a picturesque spot with a fence!
The memories linger on softly too of Zim...
Thanks for hosting my fav meme! And thanks to for the link to Inspired Sunday! Much appreciated!

Small City Scenes said...

What??? I didn't know---so so sorry for your loss and Fem's too. I am sure she is lonely and you too.I know when my beautiful Jewel left us I missed her so much. Hearts heal but the memories are wrapped around that very same heart.
Golly I feel so bad.

Celestina Marie said...

Beautiful photo with gorgeous Gem. She makes the fence look good. Glad she is doing well. Have a great weekend ahead.

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

I'm glad she is doing ok with the loss. It's always so sad to lose an animal, and horses are different for me because they live such a long time.

stardust said...

Gemilyn is so beautiful. Her standing posture looks so elegant and noble. I think I know how difficult for you to get along the loss of such a lovely friend like Zim.

Helma said...

Of course you still miss Zim! Also Gemilyn Zim will still miss. Nice that you have chosen Gemilyn to pose at the gate :-)

Author R. Mac Wheeler said...

sweet sweet Gemilyn

S. J. Qualls said...

Gem is looking good, but it will probably always seem odd to see her by herself with no Zim around. Sad for you and Gem, both. :'(

Jan said...

So elegant, she looks like a painting on a lovely background

William Kendall said...

Missing Zim is understandable. She is a beautiful horse.

Marit Sønstebø said...

Beautiful fence model! :)

Karen Schurr said...

Aw, she's so sweet...so taken with her, that I nearly missed the fence!

♥ Łucja-Maria ♥ said...

Horses are very smart animals.
I know that longs for his friend.
Beautiful fence and photos.
Greetings from Poland.

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

She sure knows how to strike a pose. You wonder what they are thinking. We are so inclined to impose human thought into animals and the reality of it could be their thought process is probably on a whole other level we will never understand.

Margaret Adamson said...

Handome Gemilyn i an excllent model Tex. Yhank for hoting and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Barb said...

Gem is such a beauty. You do wonder what she thinks about her friend's absence.

magnoliasntea said...

Love her cute name. It's so Southern. Wondering if she will be getting a friend in the future?

Crissi said...

Magnificent animal!
Happy day Crissi

Nancy J said...

I am sure that Zim will always be in Gem's mind. How little we know what they are really thinking.And Gem will always be in your heart and our hearts too, those of us who "knew" her. Lovely to see her name again.

LV said...

As always, you treated us to the best of themes. You did an outstanding job on capturing this sight from your world.Stay cool.

jeannettestgermain said...

She is a total dream -the kind of horse that appears in faiy tales! Dealing with animals dying, that would be a reason I could not be a farmer. I would be a wreck!
Have a happy weekend, Teresa.

Alica said...

Love the reflective shadows on her. Makes me want to paint from nature.

Revrunner said...

Gone, but not forgotten.

Nora said...

The pictures are beautiful and your horse is so lovely, almost looks unreal or like a fantasy horse, so dream like. She must miss her partner horse very much, perhaps you will get another horse. It must be very sad for you as well, and I send you hugs and hope for the future. cheers.

Joseph Jameson-Gould said...

You always need something to go with a fence. Gem is as good as anything.

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

So sorry about Zim. Gemi is a pretty fence model.

I put up my post from last week that didn't make it in time. Just as well, because my new one is almost done. But it's not done, and I'm so tired right now...

Linda

nookworm said...

Peaceful and thoughtful photo.

Melissa said...

Aw. I'm not on too much lately, so I didn't know you lost Zim. Sorry! Gem does make the fence look good :)

Susan said...

Well we all know that females are better survivors than males! I know you miss Zim, poor guy. I'm sure Gem is too. Tough time I know. XOXO

Gert said...

Oh, I feel do sorry for him... He is so beautiful!! Do you think you'll get another one?

Gert said...

Sorry..."she" not 'he'...

Mary Kirkland said...

I'm sure you both still miss him greatly. She is so pretty and in that scene it's just beautiful.

Meggie said...

Beautiful scene....I've also lost two horses. I cried like a baby. Thanks for hosting Good Fences...

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Theresa; Your Gem really look missing Zim for me; I thought his eyes are expressing his feeling. What sweet eyes and I am sure both of you sharing the feeling. After the class on Thursday seeing these pictures again, I was a bit in tears. Remembering couple of doggies I ad and lost since child.
Zim must have been also beside Gem when you were taking pictures.

Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

Farm Girl said...

Beautiful!! If I was a painter, I would ask you for that top picture. What a beautiful painting that would be. I love the lighting and the colors. I don't know if I have ever seen that angle before in your photos. I am so glad she is doing okay. I remember after my horse lost his friend he just gave up.

Betty Manousos said...

she's gorgeous!!
such a beautiful horse you've captured this week.

Still not used to.
