Horse Farm

Fences on a farm east of where I live

This photo was taken quite a while ago with a point-and-shoot camera that I don't think I own anymore. I just found this shot in my archives and although the photo isn't very clear I do like the lines the fencing makes. FYI: We have more snow than this now.

A few weeks ago, I saw a list of fill-ins on Rose's blog and filled in blanks 1 through 5 here.  This week I have continued with 6 to 10:

6. If I were a direction I’d be north where indirect light (in the Northern Hemisphere) is soft and usually flattering.

7. If I were a piece of furniture I’d be either a desk or a bookcase. It’s hard to choose. A desk because ever since I was a very little kid I have loved paper, pencils, pens, crayons.... A bookcase because I love to read.

8. If I were a liquid I’d be coffee in the morning and tea for the rest of the day.

9. If I were a gemstone I’d be a garnet because they are red...but not flashy. I like that.

10. If I were a tree I’d be a larch, a deciduous conifer with fine, delicate needles. They are gorgeous in spring, summer and fall, but lose their needles in winter - until spring when they surprise us all over again with their beauty.

Beautiful photo! Love snows pictures too.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Nice shot, something about board fences, snow, and horses really works.

I like larches also. I seldom see one though.

Gill - That British Woman said...

as always great shot of one of the many horse farms around here. Good answers to those questions also.

Knipsa Passtscho said...

Aren't you tired of all that snow by now? ;)
Love that picture - it looks like the horses are pulling a sleigh :))
Loved your answers this time as well. And now I'm thinking about doing the same thing for me, wonder how it turns out :))
Have a beautiful day!

Karen S. said...

What a lovely place for those horses to roam!

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Beautiful shot- I love the lines of the fences. I like your answers- for number 10 if I were a tree I would be one of those wonderful aspens or the pines I have seen (and smelled) at Yellowstone National Park..I could stand there and just inhale all day long. I'm weird, I know!

Shug said...

Your list made me smile.....I would have to agree with you on most of the numbers... so much snow this year...everywhere. Beauty is seen here, not only in the fence, but in the massive amount of land...Beautiful

Judy said...

I'm glad you posted the picture. It's peaceful to look at and it has horses!

ladyfi said...

Lovely shot with the horse.

carolann said...

Picture is striking and I had a read what you wrote first. Nice.

Sylvia K said...

A great pic for the day -- I do love horses!! And I love your fill-in answers!! Mine were nearly the same!! Hope your week is going well!! Enjoy!

Carola Bartz said...

I love the lines of the fence as well. And I agree with Knipsa, it does look as if the horses were pulling a sleigh.

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

If I were a horse I'd want a blanket.

Sandra said...

happy to see those horses have a barn for shelter.
if i were a direction it would be South as in tropical because I love trees and beaches and sun all year long.
If i were a tree,
i would be the big fat old oak.. because i AM all three

VP said...

Almost like a painting!

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

What a great photo for good fences. Lovely shot and I enjoyed your "if I were"
Have a great day. CM

Ida said...

That's a lovely snowy winter scene and yes the fence lines do make for good photo composition.
I'm sorry you still have snow. We are enjoying nice temps this week here.
Had fun reading your 6-10.

Stephanie said...

Love the wide open space and the lines of the fence. Great shot!

Tanya Breese said...

Ileana said...

I love this photo!

Good rural winter scene.

Breathtaking said...

Oh wow!It's just like a water colour painting a friend gave me, which I love, and I would have your photo on my wall any day.:)

Great answers by the way!

Birdman said...

I'll take your snow field. Much better scene then my 'snow farm' of yesterday.

Amy at love made my home said...

Great picture! xx

Marie said...

I completely agree with some of your answers! Garnets are my favorite (and also my birthstone); love love love books; coffee starts my day and then I drink iced tea all day long. Loved the shot, too!

It's a wonderful photo! The fence adds such interest. Great lines! Enjoyed reading your answers to Rose's questions. Interesting!

LV said...

Absolutely breathtaking snowed covered land and fence. Well done.

bailey-road.com said...

Such a lovely winter scene.

Ginny said...

Wonderful shot! It reminds me of a P.Buckley Moss painting.

Alica said...

Brett...that looks cold...but the horses don't seem to mind!

4RRanch said...

Beautiful contrast between the fence and snow!

Geoff Wilkinson said...

Just lovely, I can feel the cold...

DeniseinVA said...

It is wonderful and I did enjoy your answers.

RedPat said...

I've always liked Larch trees! And garnets!

jeannettestgermain said...

Yes, you are spoiled now with more pixels:) But still clear enough -I would say, a typical view of rural America, when looking at the fence:)

If I were ... what meme are you referring to?

Felicia said...

wonderful composition and a great fence.

Randy said...

Beautiful shot.

Montanagirl said...

I really like this photo. It drew my eye right to the barn, then back to the horses!

abrianna said...

The fence lines are a great graphic against the snow.

Jack said...

A garnet. Red. Not the choice I would have expected. But at least it is a somewhat low profile, non-flashy stone.

Chandra Eswaran said...

Lovely photo, Tina!
Holy Tundra :)
Have a Beautiful (and warm) Day!!
Peace :)

Margaret Adamson said...

Lovely fence entry this eek. Great answers but you are spot on with the Larch.

Jeevan said...

Interesting list on what you were to be! I like more the mid 3 :)

Nice capture with fence

Judy said...

What a beautiful place, and I love your answers.

edenhills said...

Beautiful shot. I just loved reading your responses to the questions. Nice to get to know you a little better.

Kathy said...

I too like paper and pens, pencils, but I never thought about being a desk. Hmmm, food for thought And I've never heard of a larch tree, which just goes to show what a small world I live in. That's one of the reasons I like blogging and meeting people like you. You open my eyes to the world's diversity and fill my vision with richness that I've never known before.

Small City Scenes said...

Excellent post.
Love your answers.
I guess I would be a desk piled with books. haha

Rose said...

I really like the picture...but it makes me realize how glad I will be when warmer weather returns. I always wonder how much cows and horses feel the cold.

Your answers are really interesting to read...I had to look up what liquid I would be. Went back to read, and thought DUH--I should not have had to look.

I am amazed I did not think of desk and bookcase. I LOVE pens and paper....always buying notebooks and pens even though I don't need them. And I have loved to read ever since I first learned. Mom started telling me it was time for me to turn out my light when I was in second grade. No joke.
