The sign under the horse says Mountain House Stables.
While spending time with our son and daughter in law in Eastern Washington I took some photos on our son’s property and along some back roads close to them. Close is a relative term when you live in the country.
This fawn visited our son’s property with it’s mother the first day we arrived.
I’m linking up with TexWisGirl for Good Fences #127.
We are catching up with the regular things we do in the city at this old house. We have a busy last weekend of August coming up. Our eastern Washington kids are coming on Saturday. Dear and I are going to a Chinese wedding reception Saturday night which will be a first for us. I’ve been reading up on Chinese wedding customs so we don’t do something that would offend. We are looking forward to this new celebration experience. On Sunday our whole family will be attending a Memorial service for our dear friend Dave. Joy and sorrow seem to always go hand in hand. How’s your summer winding down?

Hello, pretty countryside. I love the dog and the fawn! Enjoy your weekend, sounds like some fun times. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!
Ah, the horse atop the fence stands so still !
Wow I have seen lots of fences and entrances in Eastern Wa. since My daughter lives in that part of the state but not the gate with the horse atop. Great.
Nice photos! I love that fencing the with horse ♥
How fun to have a horse over the gate! There was a business in Lehi that had a horse on the roof but a few years ago they took it down. I was so disappointed because it was a local landmark. Love the deer.
Summer is winding down pretty fast around here. But the temperatures are hot, hot today! How fun to see that little fawn. They are so sweet (except if they eat one’s garden).
Oh they live in beautiful countryside! I love the first photo, but then I love the sheep & Psalm 23!
beautiful views. peaceful. enjoy that wedding! i think it’ll be wonderful.
Pretty with the hills in the background! They do live in a gorgeous place, don’t they?
Very pretty fence scenes. I look forward to hearing about the wedding.
Bless you as you attend the Memorial.
We are still settling in after our move recently. Saving some projects for cooler weather!
Awwww I really like all your fence images.
I enjoyed your pastoral scenes.
Indeed, joy and sorrow do seem to go hand in hand. I pray that the memorial ceremony is comforting and inspires others to number their days. When the person who has passed away knows the Lord, these times are so bittersweet.
Looks like those sheep would like to get out of their pasture and into the green one! Nice scenery.
I enjoyed your post! I love those puffy white clouds in the first picture. The fawn in the last pic is precious. 🙂
A Chinese wedding reception sounds very interesting; you’ll have to tell us all about it. Our summer is fairly busy at the moment, and unfortunately, the heat and humidity are cranking back up around here. Sigh. Looking forward to fall.
Thanks for your visit, Ellen, and have a great weekend!
lol, my first thought was: how on earth did the horse get up there 🙂
Now that horse isn’t something you see up on a gate/entrance very often.
You found some great fences there along with some cute critters.
Great fences pictures! Love that fawn – so beautiful. I always like reading about what’s happening at your place (at the end of the post) – a Chinese Wedding – can’t wait to see and hear all about it. Sending prayers as you gather to say good-bye to your dear friend.
