Good Fences #46

Another nice cattle ranch and fencing that's been around for a long time.
Left side of the entrance

Right side of the entrance

The gate (leftover Christmas wreaths on it as these photos were taken in mid-January)
The sign reads: Psalm 127  Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who built it.

A closer view of the fence signage that appears on both sides of the gate:
Red Angus - 1995 National Champion - Triple Creek Ranch - and their phone number
Here's the fence link-up!

Hey, how about that. I am second today - in fact because we are so far ahead of you timewise, I have been waiting for 14 hours to add my link. LOL. That's quite a grand looking Christmas gate. We don't get anything like that over here.

Brian King said...

Always love wagon wheels! The bovine cut-outs are nice, too, as is the simple gate!

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Theresa; Elegant design for main fence and cow and wagon wheels are adding the Texas atmosphere♪  You explained about the lovely Christmas decorations, I sometimes wonder how long it might be OK to leave it p:-) We have New Years' soon after, so may be we tidy up soon.
Oh, I haven't visited friends; so sorry for my recent absence...

Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

That's a pretty one, love the gate.
And with that tree right in the middle of it, the red decoration looks beautiful :)

Rose said...

I guess it must be too early for me...I had to do a triple take to realize for sure that the cow was not real. I was so focused on just that first photo...

That gate sure is fancy looking--at least across the bottom. And seems so tall.

Dicky Bird said...

My new favorite!

Dianna said...

Pretty entrance! (I thought the trees had red blooms, until you mentioned the Christmas wreaths.)

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Craftsmanship like fence and it gets their message(s) across beautifully!

Mascha said...

Lovely nice artwork!
It reminds me about a cow called Clytemnestra and her calf Orestres - they skipped or breached any fence and walked everywhere around. I think that's in the books by Rita Mae Brown & Sneaky Pie...
Thanks for hosting

Cranberry Morning said...

That's quite an impressive gate, and I'd never before heard of Red Angus. We have Black Angus here, but not red, as far as I know.

Pamela Gordon said...

That gate is really beautiful. Very nice fence. Thanks for hosting. Enjoy your day.

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

What a beautiful entry and the tree behind the gate looks like the bows are right on it. Love those cow silhouettes on the fence.
Thank you for hosting!
Smiles!

Linda Kay said...

Love the fence with the bows..look like on the tree.

Georgette Sullins said...

Like the verse from Psalms. So true. It goes well with the apparent age of this place.

Irma said...

I love the cows in the fence.
Beautiful photos
Best regards, Irma

Anvilcloud said...

Nice splash of red from the wreaths.

Ileana said...

Impressive views! Nice gate! Thank you for hosting. Have a nice day!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

The red bows on the gate make it seem that the TREE behind it is decorated. I really like that image.

Of course, the shakers and MOO'ers are great too. Love me some beef.

John's Island said...

Very nice fence indeed and home of 1995 National Champion Red Angus. I know about Black Angus but this Red is a first for me.

EG CameraGirl said...

I'd be proud too if my cattle were National Champions! What an honour!

Revrunner said...

Champion beef. Nice way to promote the ranch.

eViL pOp TaRt said...

That's a very memorable, impressive gate!

DeniseinVA said...

I love this, especially the cows and the gate is impressive.

Jacquelineand.... said...

If that isn't high Texas style, there ain't no such critter!

Molly TheWally said...

Very impressive. Have a tremendous Thursday.
Best wishes Molly

A Quiet Corner said...

Great fencing for those Red Angus! We had Black Angus when I was growing up...:)JP

Felicia said...

yes this is simple yet elegant. I like the scripture and apparently they've won awards with their cattle.

DJan said...

Nice! I thought that was a real Angus, but then I noticed it's the same in all the pictures. :-)

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

That gate doesn't look any worse for wear! Very attractive!

Anne Payne said...

I love the wrought iron gates and cutouts! Very cool with the award listed, too.

KaHolly said...

You always find some beauties! I've been traveling around TX and think of you every time I see a nice ranch gate. Am up Ft.W way this week.

Karen S. said...

What an interesting place, the fencing and cutouts are unique and especially how the Christmas bows line the gate with the tree in the background it makes for a pretty picture!

Jeanne said...

Love that decorated gate! hope you are keeping warm, and hoping for some nice warm weather this weekend

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

Great meme. I don't have a fence this week, though. Good for you for hosting.

William Kendall said...

Quite an impressive gate!

Knipsa Passtscho said...

I guess Felicia forgot to add her link before she left for work :(

bj said...

Very nice. You must live smack in the middle of ranch country...you show us so many fences and gates.'
Thank you for hosting, Tex.

Nancy Chan said...

That is a beautiful gate especially with the bows and the tree in the middle. Great verse in Psalm 127, so true.

Carola Bartz said...

When I first looked at the top photo I thought that is a real cow... would be a rather small cow, or a very tall fence! I love the cows in the fence and the wagon wheels as well. Lovely shots.

Debbie said...

oh no.....i thought there were cattle in the fields. i was going to comment how nice it is to have them in the picture. then i somehow realized "they are part of the fence"?????

good thing i did not write that and embarrass myself ;)

Birdman said...

Good solid fencing in this one today. The cattle are going nowhere.

bailey-road.com said...

It's an impressive and classy entrance. I like the big cow cutout.

Andrea Priebe said...

This fence has class and these ranchers are among an elite group who have had a National Champion Bull. I love how they wove the wagon wheels right into the fence. I really like this one, Theresa ...

Fireblossom said...

Moo!

Jeevan said...

That looked like a real bull stood behind the fence! The wreaths adorn the gate beautifully

Small City Scenes said...

Nice outfit. MB

Kate said...

Wonder if the wreath is still there; some folks just can't let go of Christmas.

sweetdaysundertheoaks.com said...

Triple Creek Ranch.. I like the sound of that. Lots info on that fence and gate entrance!

happywonderer.com said...

Very nice. I wonder if they knew that tree would grow to center the gate. The signage is great.

Halcyon said...

This is a nice fence. There's no mistaking what's behind it!

Carletta said...

a substantial fence and a lovely ornate gate. I wonder if they planted that tree - it's in a perfect spot behind the gate.
Thanks for hosting! :)

Melissa said...

On first glance those cows look real to me!

don said...

The fence is of such high quality. I like their gate too and the scripture is a fine Christian reference. I like their attitude and willingness to state their beliefs.

Bethany Carson said...

Very nice fence and gates--great design, and I like the scripture verse as well!

Farm Girl said...

Very Nice!

We are the champions!

Congrats to Triple Creek Ranch.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

That is one cool fence and gate! I love the cutouts and I always like to see wagon wheels. Thanks for hosting!

Mary Hone said...

So elaborate.

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Gee, that first picture I thought the cow was real.

Terry and Linda said...

Welded fences make the very best fence. No bull or cow can topple them over.

Love the Christmas Gate

Terrific fence for the day and it is elaborate!!

Rustic Vintage Country said...

Love that gate and fence. I thought those were flowers on the little tree before you mentioned Christmas decorations! x

DIMI said...

Wow!!What a beautiful entrance! I love the cow and the wagon wheels!So cool Tex!
Dimi...

Stephen Hayes said...

Lo9ve the large cow cutouts attached to the fence. I had to look closely to see that they weren't real.

Beatrice Euphemie said...

That is one handsome entrance! Love the detail on the gate and all the signage. So cool that they have the grand champion, too.

Kerri Farley said...

What a great entrance!

Julia said...

A beautiful fence and the sign give us the impression that the owners are decent people. I love the mode of advertisement.

This week went fast. Spring is getting closer here but you wouldn't know it. Snowing again...
Hugs,
JB

Margaret Adamson said...

Hi Tex This is a lovely post and I particularly like the gate with the wreath. I should have got you to make the link as I am very late.

Leovi Leovi said...

Wonderful and beautiful fences, beautiful photos!

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

I like this fencing. It's practical but attractive, too. Around here, you have a focus mostly on what's utilitarian.

♥ Łucja-Maria ♥ said...

Hello Tex
Great pictures, and beautiful fence
I like very much.
Greetings.

LV said...

All the ranches you share are interesting, but I really like the work on this gate.

Marie said...

LOVE that iron gate, and the scripture sign! How wonderful! Loved the fence too.

Ida said...

This is a great looking gate/fence. You really know what their ranch is all about from these photos.

SweetMarie said...

Beautiful gate! Love everything here. :)

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Very snazzy.

Breathtaking said...

Good people live here, and their gate and fence is super.

Ms. A said...

First glance, I thought that crape myrtle was growing on the fence! LOL!

pattisjarrett said...

What a pretty gate! I like the wreaths on it, so festive. I don't think I'd want the job of making the phone number fit in the fence!

Marit Sønstebø said...

Beautiful gate! I liked the wreats too :)

Debbie at Travel with Intent said...

Nice fences Theresa. I like the cattle silhouettes.
Following on from my lonely glove last week, I have some more fence finds! http://travelwithintent.com/2014/05/17/homeless-gloves-pink-water-leith/

jeannettestgermain said...

What a find! This is one of the most elaborate gates I've seen:)

Primitive Stars said...

Hello, very nice gate and fence, to me that says Texas. Francine.

Sheila at WolfSongBlog.Com said...

I just wonder how many such fences are there in Texas? I just love them - :-)

thirtysevenandcounting said...

Pretty gate! The ribbons almost appear to be on the tree, rather almost than the gate, and the cattle cutouts look real at first glance! :)

barbara l. hale said...

You found a winner!

Ramakant Pradhan said...

Some great pics on the theme.

Filip Demuinck said...

Like it with the flowers on the fence.

Greetings,
Filip

Lynne said...

Great Fence statement, I think they have stock in rod iron . . . I liked the Angus name, wondering if Angus is as expensive in Texas as it is in Michigan!

Montanagirl said...

That's a really cool gate, with the Wreath decorations. Nice touch!!

RedPat said...

Another nice example of laser-cut metal used in fences.

Margie said...

I really like the composition of the first photo T.

Grandma C said...

I have to say Texas knows how to decorate fences. lol

Lynn said...

At first I thought you were going to say they built the psalm into the fence... That would have been something! It looks very nice though:@)

Lois Evensen said...

Surely some pretty good folks live here.

Stephanie said...

Love this fencing!

messymimi said...

A lovely place!

Robin Lamb said...

T, nice gatage leading to a nice looking place!

Paula said...

Like this ranch,

Lois said...

Love those cow silhouettes!

edenhills said...

Wonderful fences! I just enjoyed seeing ground not covered in snow!

SuperLux said...

I love to look at ranches or anything that looks scenic in its simplest appearance. :)

Randy said...

That's a fun one.

Phyllis Oller said...

I linked up this time,yeah! I hope it shows from last week!
Anyhow,love the beautiful Christmas wreaths on the fence with the scripture, very pretty there in Texas,Phyllis in Pa

Karen Schurr said...

Love the way they incorporated the wheels in the fence. We used to have an iron wagon wheel along our fence for years, but it never looked that nice :)

Chandra said...

Theresa,
Another nice find! I almost thought the bull was real at first. Upon re-examination, I think it is a cutout. The wreath is quite large yet not gaudy!
Have a Great Day!
Peace :)

Indrani said...

Stunning decorations on the gate.
Great find.

ladyfi said...

Grand fences and a stately bovine.

Paul said...

Elaborate gate on the entrance to this ranch!

Linda said...

Folks there seem to spend a lot on their gates.

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
That was a very lovely fence! Lots of art work went into that.
Sending you hugs,
Mariette

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

That's a pretty fancy gate! I like the old wagon wheels next to the fence.

Hilary said...

There so many possibilities when designing gates and fences. It's fun to see what people opt to display.

Pallavi Puri said...

So interesting ! Have s lovely weekend :)

Elaine said...

I love seeing all the fancy gates and fences in your neck of the woods!

biebkriebels said...

I like that bull framed in the iron fence.

Rita said...

At first I thought the tree was part of the gate somehow--LOL! :)

michaelswoodcraft said...

very nice! Gotta have strong fence for those animals :)

Gert said...

You have the coolest ranches near you... I could get lost just admiring all the fences!! Have a wonderful day!!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

It's a lovely fence....

Pantherka said...

Very interesting the fence.

Ruth Kelly said...

I am late today; love the gate with the Christmas decorations.

Black Jack's Carol said...

Phew! Just made it in under the wire :) Thanks so much, Theresa. Your fence photos this week are especially beautiful.. something about those leftover Christmas wreaths and the sincerity of the inscription on the gate.

Pauline Woodcock said...

Really love the fence gate, especially when it is dressed up for Christmas.

NatureFootstep said...

seems to be more cattle on the fence then in the land :)
