Good Fences


Welcome Friends 
to another 
Thursday 
for

This is a "two for" 
in one photo.
Barbed wire meets white pickets!


When I met this fellow,
I was glad this good fence was between us.

He acted friendly enough,
but I am wise enough to know my place. 

He studied me for some time before walking off.
I guess he realized I was just there to admire his beauty
and respect his purpose.

Thank you for letting me take your photo
Mr. Longhorn.
Have a good day in your Texas pasture.


Joining

See you next time.

Love the combination of fences! Mr. Longhorn is a handsome fella... I've never really had the 'proper' fear of bulls, probably because my Grandfather's were so tame and gentle we kids would ride on them.

I thank you very much for "just" showing 2 pretty fences and Mr. Longhorn :)
Because I'm still thinking about which of the beautiful homes I'm going to move in :))
Have a beautiful day!

Great picture! Yes it's best to respect them at a distance! I like his coloring/markings and the bit of contrast with the green and tiny yellow flowers.

Donna said...

Wow, you are braver than I am, Celestina! That is one huge longhorn! I think I would have snapped his portrait from the safety of my car:) Hope you are having a good day!

Good Morning, First a belated Happy Birthday. I am a little behind in my visiting. I have enjoyed catching up with you to see what you have been doing. I always love your painting projects. Your longhorn picture is amazing. I would definitely want a good fence too. My oldest is back working in your state for a month. Have a great day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

Whooiee he is a big one. He is pretty but he has a look.

Don't you dare come one inch on my territory.

I like you take it is awesome.

Laurie said...

Loved your photo of the fence and Mr. Longhorn. He has a curious look on his face...he was sizing you up, wasn't he?

Valerie-Jael said...

What a fantastic longhorn, very majestic! Hugs, Valerie

Cynthia S. said...

Great photo! Yes, it's best to be careful around cattle, in general. Longhorns are pretty gentle creatures. They use their horns to push and move things...and, to scratch. But, don't mess with their young or you will witness a fight!! They can be unpredictable, depending on their temperament. Love this photo! Brings back memories.🐄

What a fun picture! I'm glad you kept a safe distance :) I hope you're having a lovely day.

He looks a bit daunting, brave of you to get so close! ~Diane

Karen S. said...

If he could talk, he'd say, "I'm proud to be me!"

Stephanie said...

Fabulous photo, my friend! I love the fact that you got two fences for the price of one :)

Hugs to you!

Art and Sand said...

I love that fellow. If I saw him, I would be quite happy that there was a fence.

Linda Walker said...

Celestina,
You are braver than I! I think I would have needed an additional fence between me and Mr. Longhorn, though he is a handsome specimen for sure. Really nice photo!

Shug said...

Ah....You know I love this one!! A big ol' longhorn, behind a Country fence...can't get any better than that..
Great photo...

Ida said...

What a great photo. The Longhorn is very handsome and so cool. Loved that you caught the barbed wire and the white picket fence in the shot and the pretty flowers too. It's a wonderful scene.

Tete said...

Great two-for! I love the green grasses in your photo. Brave girl for facing a bull. I do love his freckles. Have a fun day.

Cynthia said...

I don't know if I've ever told you but I enjoy this series. Beautiful cow, never saw one with the horns. Don't laugh, I don't know if I said that right.

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

Celeste, what a beautiful picture. How clever of you to notice the two fences. My eyes would be glued to that gorgeous animal..Happy Thursday..Judy

Rue said...

I wouldn't have messed with him either! lol

Happy belated Birthday, Celestina :)

Marie said...

Good two-fer! And nice looking bull!

Kelly Deal said...

Mr. Longhorn is so handsome! Nice fence picture!

Deborah Montgomery said...

Great picture. I would have kept my distance, too!

Alica said...

While the white picket fence is prettier, I'd definitely feel safer behind the barbed wire! Never trust a bull!

LV said...

A great big ole fellow. I definitely would give him his space.

Julie's Lifestyle said...

Wow what a great photo of Mr. Longhorn and so glad there was that fence! Have a nice Friday and weekend.

Kerri said...

I never expected to see bull on your blog :) I love cows! Every time I go to our yearly South Florida Fair, I must go see the cows in the livestock area.

Have a blessed weekend my friend.

He is a handsome fellow, great shot!

Lois said...

Nice shot of Mr. Longhorn. My nephew who lives near Austin has a couple of these handsome fellows as neighbors.

So wise to stay on the right side of a fence...
I enjoyed this photo, did you take a special trip about your area or travels to find such a great photo?
You always give me the best ideas!
Lovely, Roxy

Felicia said...

Claudia said...

Deare Celeste,
a great picture, and I can imagine, that you have been happy, this fence was between you and this fellow ;O)
Wishing you a wonderful weekend, sending Love and hugs and blessings, my dear friend!

BeachGypsy said...

he looks scary!! I wouldn't want to tangle with him!!

NanaDiana said...

Great photo! Two fences in one photo.
I can remember being out in the field (where I wasn't supposed to be) and seeing the bull across the pasture. He was mean and we were not supposed to be in there. I remember how hard my heart started beating and I walked as fast as I dared back to climb through the nearest fence...hoping I wouldn't attract his attention. I made it....lol Hadn't though about that incident in years.

You are wise to respect animals like that! xo Diana

Margaret Adamson said...

He is handsome but glad he is on that side of the fence.

Old Time Cindy said...

What a great 'twofer' shot of the fences with that great longhorn. He's a looker! :)

Feral Turtle said...

Simply beautiful.

Celeste,
I think your photograph of Mr. longhorn is splendid. Just a fence in between and you captured his essence and it turned into an amazing "good fences" post.

Thanks for your visit and comment last night. I hope you wore your snow boots! Next week is warming up and the snowstorm I really believe ... Eyes, fingers and toes crossed was the last this season.
Xoxo,
Vera

Debbie said...

I bet that fence is a three-fer...it's probably electric. We had to use electric fences for our bulls because wire wouldn't keep them in.
Your photo is wonderful!!!

Red Rose Alley said...

This looks like a stubborn but very special animal. I smiled when you said you knew your place with this splendid fellow.

love, ~Sheri

Sherry @ Thrift My House said...

GREAT photo! Wow! He is handsome. Love the barbed wire!

Laurie Ritchey said...

Oh My! I'm glad the fence was there too. He looks fierce, but he is a beauty.
