GOOD FENCES - Blessingbourne House in June

These photographs were taken on my first evening at Blessingbourne House as I walked around the lake.  The horse, called “Toy Boy” belongs to Coleen, Nick’s wife and she rides it as often as she can.  There is a short video of Nick, the owner  when he is taking the cows and calves that you saw on yesterday's post when I walked though the farm yard, out to pasture.







Coming nose to nose with the live stock!!




Toy Boy waiting for a scratch.

    1. Hi Sandra You fences were not ugly today at all and I loved the light in the shots. I am glad you liked my post and the reason I have so many is because I am in the middle of showing my photographs from Blessingbourne House. I am still showing photographs from the first evening!!!!

  9. The lake is beautiful, and I enjoyed seeing that you got up close and personal with the livestock. The gate is pretty, but I really like the wooden fence along the lane.

  11. Beautiful photos... YES---they do NEED those fences, don't they???? When we were traveling out west one year, I noticed that the cattle were wandering all over the place --with no boundaries nor fences.... I had never seen that before... We had to be careful not to drive too fast for fear of them crossing the road in front of us... ha

    Hugs,

  20. I love those cows all in a row. Cows are curious! Never saw anyone snap the whiskers, how cute! The lake is beautiful, and I love the shot of the garden through the two pillars.

  25. I agree with those who said your fences were not just good ones, but absolutely beautiful ones. I enjoyed the video as well. The cows are eager to come back for their evening meal. At least, that is how I interpreted their happy trots as they came up to the gate. Your photographic eye is evident in every shot you post :)

  28. I've exceeded my bandwidth for the month. Too many kiddy videos and photos. This took forever to load! But it was worth it!

  29. I especially like the photo with the curved fence. Makes me want to follow that path around the bend to see what's there.

    Thanks for visiting my Good Fences Post.
