I love it when I see folks using their noggins and letting their animals do the yard work. It just makes sense.

Mascha said...

Very nice.

Lovely place, lovely horses! It would be nice to live where i could have an animal graze my front yard into submission, instead of having to pay to have it mowed.

Lea said...

We both have horses today!
Thanks for hosting this meme
Have a great day!

When I see horses behind a fence I almost always think: why don´t they jump over it?

Bruce Clark said...

Always love your shots with metal cut outs signs

Dearest Theresa; Happy scene horses grazing behind the fence♪ I told my husband that the front horse shows his happy feeling with the waving tail widely, he said "who knows"(♡^.^♡)

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

I wouldn't mind horses or animals being my lawnmower either - so much more quiet.

A peaceful country scene. Beautiful horses looking content and so much happier than horses up here in this dry place.

I would not want to mow that front yard.

Having horses inside the fenced area adds interest to the picture. Very nice series.

I like the fact...they look like they are in the front yard:)

They seem more interested in grazing than looking at their visitor!

Miss Val's Creations said...

What a wonderful scene!

Ida said...

The horses are very pretty and they seem to be enjoying that lovely green grass. I like the detail of the Double S on the gate.

Breathtaking said...

Hello Theresa!:) Lovely scenes with the horses. Nice gates, but much better with the horses behind them.:)

eViL pOp TaRt said...

Seeing the horses in the field beyond the gate aids in the scenery.

Horses make everything better!

The green patches and grazing horses under bright sunlight is eye-catching! Very pretty shots

I think it's a neat idea to have horses grazing out front.

Sometimes we look at something for a long time and then when there's a change it makes a good photo.

Nice gate! Since I'm just learning about the ways in rural areas, I don't know what to say about horses grazing in the front:) Have a great weekend!

Stephen Hayes said...

Easier than mowing the lawn--let horses eat the grass.

mick said...

Great scene with the horses in front.

Primitive Stars said...

One wonders if those horses did break loose or not?
Lovely gate.
Hugs,
Mariette

May be the front paddock, but all I see are rear ends. :-)

Horses increase the face value of any fence. :D Nice find. It pays to always look, doesn't it?

Sweet shots of the horses.

What, after all, is a paddock without a few horses?

Ms. A said...

Keeping the grass nice behind that fence!

Lynne said...

The grazing horses make it a picture perfect Good Fence scene . . .

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Beautiful shot behind the gate! The horses look content. Have a great weekend, Tex. I hope the weather gives us a break soon. I am sick of the steambath.

Pretty horses. Enjoy your weekend.

I love to see a bunch of horses close up!

Happy summer weekend ....love Ria x

nookworm said...

There is no place like home for happy hungry horses.

Midmarsh John said...

When I first moved here there were horses which poked their heads over the back fence to be fed. I really miss it now that land is all built up.

Rita said...

They certainly look like they are enjoying the meal. :)

A Quiet Corner said...

Running late this week, Tex...but I'm in...of course (and naturally) YOUR fences are bigger than mine!!!!...:)JP

Lovely horses.

Even though its a metal fence, the horses on the other side make it appealing.

Looking quite tranquil. :)

Cranberry Morning said...

Wow, that's what we need - a few horses to keep our yard clipped. I wish I could get Mr. C. on board with this plan, but he's enjoying his new zero-radius mower too much I think. I've already suggested goats or sheep and that didn't fly either.

Looks nice and peaceful.

Barb said...

My granddaughter would be loving those horses!

Pat Tillett said...

It looks like a very nice place. That is a lot of grass to mow!

Small Kucing said...
