"Don't Fence Me In."


While on a highway in the northern part of New Mexico I came across this wonderful horse. Right away the Cole Porter song came to mind and it stayed stuck there for most of the day.

Maybe he/she is happy inside and you are not happy outside ...

Cool in black and white. The fence keeps if from an accident though.

Very good photograph!
Nice in b&w
And nice to see the horizon!
Well done Randy :)

A good fence for a horse. Here in Texas the most used fence is barbed wire ~ okay for cows but perilous for horses!

Kate said...

The horse doesn't seem to mind, just as long as there's enough to munch along that fence.

Those words would never be more appropriate...

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

Yeah! Thanks a lot! I'm already singing that song!

Cute pic, though.

Pretty horse Randy.

texwisgirl said...

Yup, that is a great horse fence. keeps 'em from leaning thru to get the greener grass on the other side...

Sharon said...

Ahhh...I've had that happen many times!

Dawn said...

Singing it now too....
But do you think he thinks WE are the ones fenced in?

Markosy said...

Well, I don´t think anyone can feel nice when fenced. I spend most of my days in an office and it dead to me.

Thanks for sharing your photos,

Antonio

Horses are often behind fences ! I love to see them galloping on a beach or a forest !

Como siempre un placer pasar por tu casa, y navegar entre tus cosillas.

Saludos!

Great title - too bad you got an 'earworm' for the day!

Magpie said...

Don't you just "love" it when that happens...a song gets stuck in your head? Gorgeous picture though and it is a good song.

Lúcia said...

Beautiful horse, and you've chosen a very good title too! ;-)

Alan said...

I love the black and white! Nicely framed and well captured!!!

Jack said...

Well done, Randy.

Tracy said...

That does look like a beautiful horse!

I'm still laughing at Wong's comment! I like the background, it looks desolate which lends itself to your loneliness theory.

Allison said...

What Cole Porter song? I will want to look this up and listen to it! Great shot, Randy.
