I LOVE FENCES


This beautiful, very small, ranch was, at one time, on the edge of town. 
It now has housing developments and business all around it.


It is a gorgeous place....
and when you are standing by the fence,
it makes you feel  like you are in the country.

We have the added feature of TWO fences here.




I played in PHOTOSCAPE with this photo,
highlighting part of the beautiful PAINT horse
and his BLUE stock tank....


Besides their beautiful horses,
they have a few LONGHORN CATTLE
but this day they must have all been in the barn..



Thanks so much for stopping by...

I'm joining TEX for her

GOOD FENCES THURS.

 Have a great weekend....



 I think I'll make these tonight...

  1. Sprawl...glad that it didn't absorb the ranch and that it still exists...a little oasis in suburbia. Enjoy those cookies!

  2. I love fences, too. Hmmm...but I'm afraid I love good food a whole lot more. Those cookies look great and I will share them with my niece who has to eat gluten free!

  3. BJ, this is a pretty spread. Can you see it from your property?
    Those cookies look really good. Don't think they are on my diet though. '-)
    Eat one for me!

  5. I love the symmetry of those 4 pretty trees in your first picture ... like 4 little ladies standing in a reception line, almost.

  7. I like the homemade, rustic look of the fence. The posts are weathered, different heights . . . I Like . . .

  8. I like fences - wooden fences, stone walls, wire fences with interesting posts - there are lots of fences at Pondside!

  10. Hi bj! I just love that fence with the real tree posts and barbed wire! It looks like a nice place to stroll with a few peanut butter cookies in hand! Linda

  11. It's amazing how a simple barbed wire fence can be as enchanting to me as a picket one in the right setting. (It might be the name of the ranch. I'm such a sucker for names. They just make everything better.)

  12. Have that same peanut butter cookie recipe and make them quite often using a sugar substitute. The ranch and fence pictures are great. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  13. Wonderful finds for your fence post, the horses are beautiful. Thanks for sharing the cookie recipe, they look yummy! Have a happy day!

  14. Nice fence photos! I always like to see a roll of barbed wire on the post. And I think I'll skip the goat project. I'm getting lots of advice against it. :-)

  15. Beautiful ranch and fences BJ. Do you live near Waco? Have you seen the new show on HGTV called Fixer Upper?

  17. I think I could settle in there.

  18. i'm glad at least that little part hasn't been developed yet! yum, peanut butter cookies!

  19. This is how I imagine Texas, BJ. Big open fields with horses and cows and those cool ranch style fences. I'd love to visit one day.

    Thanks for your nice comment yesterday. Those Beach Boys were working so fast they would have been a blur if I tried to snap a picture. I'm glad that hubby found a crew like this...they do everything. The following day they came back and cleared out the old ratty landscaping I had in front of the house. I had that planned as a BIG project this summer and was dreading it. How was I going to pull out two big old evergreen bushes? They had it done in an hour and now I'm ready to start planting!! I'm a happy gal!! :)

    XO,

  21. i noticed the fences, i love the rugged look, looks like it has been through some tough times & weather ... but i am wondering if i have all the items to make those cookies? YUM!! ( :

    ReplyDelete
  22. awww, for me it is always sad to see so much development around such a beautiful, natural spot!! Those cookies sound interesting and easy!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I like the use of the natural sticks as fence posts. Neat!

  27. I'm so glad that little ranch is still there even in the midst of the businesses moving into their territory. It's beautiful and I love the fences and especially the Paint!

    I've made that cookie recipe before and it's good. Very good! Enjoy!

  35. Pas Those cookies are wonderful and so easy!

  36. How fun to have a bit of the country right in town like that. Loved the rolled up wire against the fence.
    So no flour in the cookies, that's weird. How do they stay together?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh how I love it! We have lots of big horse farms here in FL....and lots of houses, too! Enjoy your weekend! Remember....EAT CAKE! heehee! Hugs, Diane

  40. Great fences. Brings back memories. And makes me sad. We had a 10 acre little horse property. It's now McMansions. We boarded 10 horses. We were so busy we never had a chance to take any pics. I miss that place.
    Thanks for sharing and giving me a few fond memories.
    Have a good weekend.
