That is a sturdy fence, and the cattle behind it look tough enough that they need one!

Cattle with big horns needs sturdy fencing.

Good for stubborn cattle that might push through other kinds of fence! :-)

There ain't a fence made that can hold this crowd for long. They were BO


There ain't a fence made that can hold this crowd for long. They were BORN free! :-)









Mildred said...

Good Morning, Love these cows this a.m. Hope you have a nice day.

Kovács Miklós said...

I'm a big milk fun so liked this fence and those cattles :)

messymimi said...

It looks a lot more imposing than wooden posts and "bobware" as my Sweetie says they used to call it back when he was helping build that type of fence.

Lynn said...

Gotta keep 'em safe:@)

I think pipe fence in Texas is cheaper because of surplus/recycling from the oil industry. Too expensive for us here in Virginia. Nice cattle too.

EG CameraGirl said...

It definitely looks sturdier than wood and likely lasts longer too but I imagine the cost to encircle a ranch could be be extremely expensive.

Gayle said...

A place for everything and everything in its place - 'good fences'.

Sandra said...

I have never heard the sucker rod part, makes a good fence but you know i am LOVING what is behind that fence.

eViL pOp TaRt said...

It should be sturdy enough to keep the cattle in!

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

"pipe and sucker rod fencing" and here I thought it was just a metal fence! :)

bj said...

always love your Texas fences....

DJan said...

Strange that I've seen two blog posts in one day with cows behind fences. I never heard of sucker rod but I can see that it's quite sturdy. :-)

Bethany Carson said...

Those are some good-looking cattle; I don't think they're escaping from that pasture any time soon though--nice fence.

Gail said...

I have dreamed of this kind of fence...

Uppal said...

Jacquelineand.... said...

Love this type of fence, and the way you've composed the photos points out perfectly why they're needed.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

That makes a good strong fence. Looks like they have plenty to eat and don't want to get out! Hugs, Diane

Rose said...

The cattle look like they require a sturdy fence!

Our beautiful Texas country side! Beautiful photos of gorgeous cattle. Thanks for sharing and thank you for hosting this fun party. I want to join in more often. Fences and gates are often works of art.

Cattle are safe behind that fence!Have a nice day!

John's Island said...

Hi Tex, Congrats on Good Fences #66. Wow, it is amazing what a great following you have going here on this meme. Kudos! One of these days I'm going to email you on the side and ask how to set up a meme. I've been considering something like "Trains on Tuesday" ... what do you think about that? I have been surprised that although most bloggers are ladies, they do seem to appreciate my posts that have something to do with trains even though it isn't any part of their usual blog content. Now, on your post here today, the pipe and sucker rod fencing does look very secure! Often, when I'm in Montana, I'm out in the Ranch country that's much like your own. One thing I learned is that simple barbed wire fencing is very subject to failure and there is a constant fear by cattle owners that the stock will get out of their area of containment and, perhaps, onto a road or highway where they can become a liability instead of an asset. The pipe and sucker rod fencing looks like a good way to limit that possibility. Thanks for sharing.

Debbie said...

That's some sturdy fencing and it looks good in pictures!! They have some pretty flimsy fencing here in Lancaster, holding back a whole lot of big critters. I have not been trespassing ;)

Mich said...

Always love your photos.

Those cows look delicious.

LV said...

This type fence nicer than the wire ones. More expensive as well. However, with good cattle, you need a strong fence.

bailey-road.com said...

Good-looking cattle behind that sturdy fence.

Kathy said...

That's a great variety of cows.

"E", ...Beth... , from VA. said...

i love all the spots. spotty cows are cool!! ( :

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

I'll bet you wish your neighbor had a fence like that. ;)

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

Sucker rod? I never heard that before. Gotta "google" that one.

don said...

These are fine shots of this interesting type of fence. I wonder why ranchers/farmer choose this expensive approach. I do like the looks of it very much.

Marit Sønstebø said...

Very nice fence! It looks expencive, and I guess it's worth the money.

Jeevan said...

Good looking fence! Hope it protect them well

magnoliasntea said...

I've been chased by cows before and coulda used a fence like that.

Sylvia K said...

Great fence and handsome cows -- with their horns, you'd appreciate the fence even more!!

Karen S. said...

I've always liked this kind of fencing but never really knew the correct name for it! They sure are have a great cow day out and about!

S. J. Qualls said...

That looks good and sturdy, our neighbor loses his cattle due to cheap fence.

Farm Girl said...

Only kind of fence to have with cattle. Lovely shots.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

That is a great fence. Lucas Ranch in southern Missouri has miles of that fencing. I always wonder how much that cost them when I see it! :)

A Quiet Corner said...

Now that is a FENCE to hold in those rambunctious critters!...:)JP

Primitive Stars said...

One needs good fencing to keep them in, Francine.

Mama Zen said...

Love these shots!

Ida said...

Nothing like a fine sturdy fence and some nice looking cattle and some horses too in that first shot. I liked these photos a lot especially the 2nd shot.

Marie C said...

I remember all those fences! It always seemed kind've ironic because of the early cattle ventures and the song "Don't Fence Me In." These are some great "through the fence" shots!

Margaret Adamson said...

Great photographs of the cattle rses ad yes the fences are substantial. Thanka for hosting.

Laura. M said...

watch out for the cows ;))

MICKAN from QUEENS FIELD¸.•°`♥✿⊱╮ said...

This fence look so good for the animal. It's must be a lot of fence there for the nice cows ☆

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Looks like they'd save on maintenance costs after the initial investment though! And it is a very attractive fence while being utilitarian.

Jan n Jer said...

It takes lots of work and $$$ for fences like that! Hope to get back sooner then later...hope all is well in your neck of the woods Tex.:)

William Kendall said...

I see you're attracting some attention from the cows!

Janey and Co. said...

I can imagine fencing would be expensive, especially to keep this group in.

RedPat said...

It looks really strong and very tidy!

FOREST SNAPPER said...

solid fence for solid stock, thanks for hosting.

Paula said...

A good sturdy fence.

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

That is what I call a great fence from a practical point of view.

Miss Val's Creations said...

Looks like a secure fence for those guys!

Our photos said...

Very nice fencing !

Robin Lamb said...

T, great fence! Need something sturdy like that to keep them big boys and girls on the right side of things!

pattisjarrett said...

I would think a really Good Fence would be required to keep the cattle where they belong. That's a lot of beef to contain!

Lois said...

Those cows look like some of my sister's neighbors at her new house near Austin!

Stephen Hayes said...

I imagine it takes a strong fence to keep those guys where they belong.

Felicia said...

yep it looks like a mighty fine fence.

That is a serious fence! Love the cattle.

Red said...

We have some of those fences in Alberta. They last forever.

Barb said...

I see you're drying out there. Not much green for the cattle.

Randy said...

Another lunch bunch.

Stephanie said...

One would need a really sturdy fence to keep these cattle within. Is that piping rusty?

Chandra Eswaran said...

Awww...my friends the Long Horns!
Thanks for hosting Good Fences, Theresa!
Have a Wonderful Day!
Peace :)

Paul said...

Pipe and sucker rod fencing. Hmm... Now I know what "Pipe" is but "Sucker Rod" that term had me baffled. Never heard anything like that over here on the West Coast of Canada before. So I Googled it.

A sucker rod is a steel rod, typically between 25 and 30 feet (7 to 9 meters) in length, and threaded at both ends, used in the oil industry to join together the surface and downhole components of a reciprocating piston pump installed in an oil well.

Who would have known, you learn something new every day!

Rita said...

More interesting looking through the fence. ;)

Lynne said...

Am I the first to say, "moo, mooooo, mighty fine fence!

Linda said...

I like the cows of many colors!

Beatrice Euphemie said...

That's a beautiful fence! Lots of welding to create! Love the beautiful cattle, too! Thanks for hosting!

Ms. A said...

The Whistlers would love that fence, but I bet it gets mighty hot in the summer!

Nice fencing... I have painted a few miles of that in my past! Nice looking cows!

It will certainly be massive.

SweetMarie said...
