Pickets, Barbed Wire and Longhorns

Welcome Friends 
to

Going back through the archives,
 I found this great photo
sharing my favorite picket fences 
with a barbed wire fence.

The handsome fellow here was keeping his eye on me while I took the photo.



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.

See you next time.

craftyles said...

Awww, he's almost kinda cute. Probably smart to keep the fence in between you and him though! Looks like a beautiful Texas place.

Andrea Ostapovitch said...

What a remarkable animal! I would definitely have to stop to take his handsome photo!

LV said...


Definitely one you need to keep your distance from.

Kim said...

Absolutely gorgeous and yes, quite intimidating! I would be happy for that fence, as well!!

Roosterhead Designs said...

Oh My Word! what a great photo Celeste! Don't you just crack-up sometimes; at the 'look' animals can give when you take their pic!?!
Thanks for sharing~ Karen O

Nice to have that barbed wire fence between. We do not see Longhorns around here they are very stunning in stature. Nice shot. Hug B

He definitely doesn't look like he's smiling ;/
Thanks for sharing.

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Oh, he is a handsome fellow and in such a beautiful setting! Thank goodness for sturdy fences, though, as those horns look lethal! Love the pretty wildflowers. Hope your weekend has some sweet surprises, dear Celeste! Hugs xo Karen

Fabulous picture, my friend. The last time my husband, son, and I went to Texas the little one couldn't wait to see Longhorns {{smiles}} We live in a ranching community and once in a while we will see one or two, but he was tickled pink at how many he saw on our trip to Texas :)

Enjoy the upcoming weekend. Hugs!

Penny @ The Comforts of Home said...

That is a great shot!

Michelle said...

Mr. Longhorn IS a handsome fellow!

Createology said...

Oh he is a dapper Longhorn indeed. You are wise not to bother him at all. Love the photo and peacefulness of this very good fence. Lovely Weekend Dear...

Jacquelineand.... said...

I'd be very respectful of him as well; great shot!

Denise said...

great fence

Rose said...

I so love running into these creatures...they take me back to Rawhide! Remember that show? There were a few of these locally, but they are no longer there. I don't know whether they were sold or moved to another place.

Felicia said...

he's a handsome fellow but I would respect those horns too.

Debby Ray said...

You know, there are so many beautiful kinds of fancy fencing but to me, barbed wire is definitely one of my favorites. I love the simplicity of the fence itself, but what is behind the fence is usually where the real beauty lies. Love it :)

Angélica D said...

Ho dear celestina !! Que bonito animal !! Espero que tenga un bendecido fin de semana
Cariños

Donna said...

Wow, I would want to keep my distance from this guy, too! What a great shot you took:) Have a wonderful rest of the week, my friend!

Wonderful Longhorns, dear Celeste!
Wishing you a blessed and joyful weekend, my dear friend!

Art and Sand said...

I would definitely want a fence between me and that fellow.

Valerie-Jael said...

Just saw this one, I didn't get the mail this time! Hugs, Valerie

Karen@Southern Gal Meets Midwest said...

That picture just has Texas written all over it! Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend :)

Conniecrafter said...

Wow he was a big one wasn't he, those horns are something else, you have to admire the strength that they must have that's for sure. When we went to Custer State park and the Bison were on either side of our car and as tall as our car it was quite scary, especially when they would look at us like I don't think you belong here. I love the angle of your picture and the pretty green and yellow contrast of the field.

Daniela said...

What a wonderful picture, I love all this pristine nature, thank you darling Celestina, and thank you also for the sweetness and the loveliness you always bring with you, also when you leave your comments on my blog, you're truly adorable !
Have a blessed end of your week,
sending love and gratitude,
Dany

Ida said...

He is quite handsome. I'm thinking that I'd keep my distance as well. Nice white picket fence in the background.

Red Rose Alley said...

What an awesome picture! He is one BIG fellow, isn't he? It's nice that you had a respect for him and was watchful. It important that we do this always in nature. :)

I meant to post a comment on this the other day but got sidetracked. I love cows!!! He is so handsome. When I go to our local Fair, that's the first place I run to... the "Livestock tent" so I can see all of the cows. Last year I saw a cow in labor give birth.

Have a blessed weekend :)
