    1. Indeed. Maybe some day when I am in Ms. T's area, I will see a Whistling Duck. I always look!

    1. Thanks, Roan. I wish it was better, but it was one of my "Drive-by" shootings, 65 mph in a big rig.

  4. I like the lines the fences make in the second photo.

  5. The metal work on top of the gate is delightful.
    I went to grade school and jr. hi in a town east of Dallas. The fence and gate with pretty white lines is well maintained which it has to be to keep the cattle in.

  6. I like how nice and straight the gate is and the herd of cattle decoration on top.

  7. Just great !! Can't beat that gate...

  8. They look like high maintenance but secure fences to keep those cattle from misbehaving.

    1. I'm not sure about the maintenance, but they do look secure!

    1. This was the best I could do at 65 mph, in a big rig with huge side mirrors! Ha!

  11. Perhaps the brown grass isn't a good sign (too dry in your area?) but I love the warm neutral tones on your pics.

    Thanks for stopping by to see my first entry to Good Fences.

  14. These are cool fences! I love how they run through the photos - nice compositions.

  15. Good detail at 60 MPH ... I love when people make their fence into a meaningful piece of art. This is really cute ... who says a fence is a fence :)

  22. What a fun gate. Loving the scene on top of the gate. Hopefully someday you could stop and get a close-up of the gate.

    1. Ida, I hope so, but cannot guarantee it. In a big rig, it is hard to pull in to places like this. There are a lot of laws and restrictions on 18 wheelers.

  23. Unique! That rancher has his/her own style.

    1. I thought so, too. It is obvious what is important.

  24. Love the "art" on top of the gate - nice original touch. They sure are nicer then the fences I used to help mend in my younger days. Probably less slivers too.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Lovely fences, and I enjoy how they are decorated with the wrought iron figures.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I like that gate with the critter sillouhettes on the top.

  27. Pretty design. I remember, distinctly, looking for a place to get a drink of water, during a hot 106 degree day in DFW. I was out in the 'country' and there were quite a few farms.

    Love the quote your have about animal rights.

    Peace :)
