Horse Fences

Being retired does have its advantages!  It means that any day we have good weather, we can hop in the car and go off chasing that perfect shot.  Tuesday was no exception - we went out into the country "barn chasing".  Of course, we always find something else to shoot - churches, animals, water, and of course, fences.  This was one of the most unusual I have seen in a while.  I can only imagine how expensive those "finials" were!  Pretty though...

I liked how they built the fence around the trees!


If you enjoy fences, fly on over to Friday's Fences and see more!

Wow! I just love the horse heads on the white fence! Very nice of them to keep the trees and go around them instead!!

Oh yes...that is quite pretty and so country in such a 'formal' way. I love it. Imagine tho, as you say...we're retired...can you imagine the upkeep of trying to have it remain so white?!! Guess we'd need a neighbor like Tom Sawyer. LOL

PS....love your new door. That oval leaded glass is perfect. Y'know what I've always wanted? ---a narrow panel cut in the wall by the door entryway, with stained glass. Okay...you may call me a dreamer.

Very pretty fence!! I can see why you'd stop to take a picture of that.
Yes, we always seem to find something to photograph. Yesterday, hubby & I took a detour to avoid a traffic jam and found a beautiful old barn! Glad I had my camera: next week's Barn Charm!

I would love to have that fence in our west pasture with a couple of beautiful bays running and snorting! Nice fence snaps Linda. Are you not having Florida withdrawal? We are!

Goodness! I live in horse country--Kentucky--but have never seen anything like these fencecaps (? or whatever the top thingeys are called. On our horse farms there are small fences around trees. Apparently the horse think they're delicious snacks or side scratchers.

Amazing find Linda! What a show stopper. Being from a horse/stud background I've never seen anything remotely like it either. Gorgeous.
