Good Fences



is a perfect way to spend your Thursday with TexWisGirl.  You will never be disappointed as some of the best fences are shown. Check them out at http://run-a-roundranch.blogspot.com


A different idea on laying a fence. Seems to me going straight would have been easier. However, it does catch your eye.


This is the way most of the fences looked when growing up.  More were barb wire tho.

My son sent me fences like that a while back. I thought they were broken fences. One is never too old to learn new things. Thanks for educating me. Interesting.

I live in the country but so far I have not seen any like this as I look now.

those zig zags don't require any nails or posts that way, but i'd sure hate to try to mow near them! :)

Debbie said...

love those zig-zags, very cool, very country!!!!

Karen S. said...

Absolutely wonderful photos, and I've been thinking of trying a bit of that zig zag style too! But it's the point Theresa made about mowing, why I haven't down it yet!

Beautiful fences! It looks like, by laying that first one in a zigzag, they can avoid putting in posts at the joints? Just guessing. I'm no fence layer, but I sure do like that fence.

Christine said...

Very eye appealing that zig zag fence! Nice pasture fencing for the horses!

I wondered too about the zigzag in the fence. Straighter seems more practical but a couple of your smart commenters know the reason why this method was chose. :)

There has to be a reason for making them zig-zag!!

Split rail fencing seem to work as a zigzag pattern for some reason. Love your shots!

Ida said...

I do like the zig-zag pattern of the first fence and what a lovely scene for your second fence shot.

Love that Ziz Zag fence in the first shot.

We have mostly barb wire around here. I've seen many more of the cross hatch type in Colorado and Wyoming.

Living in Colorado, I was always told those zig zag fences were 'snow' fences. It's supposed to help alleviate drifting. Dunno how true it is.

Love the golden grasses along the fence...so Autumnish. {is there such a word?)

Adam said...

nice country fences

Kathy said...

NOthing better than pretty horses behind a rustic fence. Yes, here in Texas we have lots of barbed wire. They say that's how the West was tamed!

Great fences, I really like the zig zag, a bit more work required but better.

Buttons Thoughts said...

Oh your top fence is called a snake fence around here. It is almost 200 years old in some areas. Lots of work to it but no wire needed. One of my favourite kind of fence. I was looking at some the other day in a farm near here. It was hidden deep in the bush. Hug B

The first one is very interesting in zigzag and I think it must be laid that way to get a balance when building it long distance.

Zig-zag is an old style when metal was a scarce commodity. Nice to see them!

The zig zag fence would require many more fence sections. They do look very attractive with the zig zag approach. Nice one.

NatureFootstep said...

love the zig zag pattern. Maybe they needed no nails in doing it that way :)

I love the zigzag line of the fence in the first photo.
