Rural Fences

Living in a rural village means that there are many good fences around, but also some that have seen better days.

Woodside fence
Timber fence replaced by wire with a strand of barbed wire on top.

The riding school horses need something less substantial.

Posts with a single canvas strand between.
If it's perspective that you seek a driveway deceives your eyes.

Fields for sheep carrying next year's lambs
They cannot escape through timber or wire.

This has been a Good Fences post.

love them all! especially the top overgrown one. :) i'm guessing that canvas strap has a hot wire strung through it to keep the horses back.

thanks for joining in with good fences!

TexWisGirl - no hot wire I think, but I will check tomorrow.

Hi Bob, these photos are marvelous. I love the English countryside having lived in England for the first 25 years of my life. Thank you for visiting my post. We were in Norway to visit the places from where my father-in-law's family originally came from. They emigrated to North Dakota three or four generations ago. The place in my post was in Oslo, a garden next to the Naturhistorisk Museum in Oslo. I will eventually have posts from our visits to Drangedal and Rollag. I am not sure when but if I can remember I will pop by to let you know. It was a once in a lifetime trip. Met so many wonderful people who helped f-in-law in his search. My sister and her family used to live in Kongsberg for a few years, and I was fortunate enough to visit them there at the time.

WooHoo, what great fences for Good Fences. What impressive green stunning grass that is too, it makes me so homesick for mowing! Hehehe! But seriously, great photos Bob.
