We had a windmill on our farm when I was growing up. Every once in awhile I see one and I remember my childhood. Great capture!xo Catherine
So cool that it operational.
It's so elegant in addition to being practical! Nice photos! I love your Texas scenery and wildlife!
Hmmmm. Perhaps I might build a mock-up of these beauties to go with my barn. IF I can remember. ;)
Rick and I were amazed when one "went up" down the road within the last year or two. They will always be in "style".
What a great find!
I'm glad you pointed her out: I may have missed her, staring at the windmill. We just don't have those "round here" - windmills NOR longhorns!
If it works or if it doesn't still cool.
Cool picture Tex! I want a windmill for the Tiny Ten, just for show.. :) Ms Longhorn was an extra treat
so cool. neat set-up. usually the most i see is just the windmill not all that extra jazz. cool! the last shot is not coming through, wonder why? ( :
Ah! I love it when I see these still working!
Nice pictures of that windmill.
Love windmills, and your pictures are wonderful as always. I especially love the longhorn peeking through.. perfect! Somehow our windmill turned up damaged yesterday (strong winds). I am very very sad :( It will be fixed! :)
Saw lots of those wind turbines on a recent trip...but this old fashioned windmill is still my favorite!....and being a Texan...a little partial to that longhorn too!
this is the only one i have ever seen that still works. i see old ones, this one looks in great shape.. we may need these one day, so it is good they still know how to work them... and you know how much i love longhorns
It's a nice looking old windmill. :-)
I don't know for sure that I have ever seen one that was actually working...
it really is beautiful
A windmill like that sure adds to the beauty of a rural landscape.
I absolutely love these artifacts of the past and rejoice when I see a few working ones.
If I had an admirer, I would make him go there and tilt at it, to defend my honor!
I love them, too. The epitome of grass roots America. :)
Dearest Theresa,Oh, the windmill is still used or operational! I had a lovely bed time smile with your "Ms. longhorn". Some of them are there, may not wild ones.Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan to my American photographer friend, xoxo Miyako*
I love seeing these old windmills...even the dilapidated, no-longer-functioning ones. They're so picturesque.
hehe....BUT when you do see one you know you are in for a treat!!the alpaca farm a stalk has one, great find her theresa!!
It goes well with the scenery~ Very pretty picture.
I remember as a kid, riding through rural parts of the midwest and seeing windmills everywhere. You're right, we don't see many anymore. Loving that longhorn!
I love such pictures...Best regards from France,Pierre
How pretty, enjoy seeing a Windmill that works, Blessings Francine.
Old but useable.Are you talking about me?
Yes we see you Mr.Longhorn. The windmills are charming. Have a wonderful Wednesday.Best wishes Molly
I've been looking at water tanks like the one on the right to collect rainwater. I like you setup!
Hi Teresa... This is a great one, and that it might in working order..wonderful!! Almost missed Ms. Longhorn ; ]Grace
Nice pictures you show with windmills :)
Oh Tex I love those windmills we have a few around here but I do not remember seeing any longhorns:) B
Hahah! You just can't escape those bulls!
Great to see this windmill is still working.
Oh, it is a GREAT one!!
I saw quite a few windmills on our little Iowa run a few weeks ago. I don't know if they were operational or not. Nice photo with a longhorn, too!
Wow, what a cool windmill! You are right, you don't see them much anymore.
It makes a nice photo.We haven't any like those where I live.
There are still quite a few of those in the countryside around here. The wind farms are making them obsolete.Great shot!
You don't see working ones very often!They all blew to pieces in this country!
Love the look of a windmill . . . Great pictures!
A classic shot.
I agree I love seeing windmills and have a mini one in my backyard!
I've seen more in disrepair than those actually working. Good subject for another meme - Windmill Wednesday.
Most of the ones I see are rusted relics. This one appears to be in good shape. Great submission for the blog hop!
Love it! I remember seeing at least one of these on every farm as we traveled the two lane roads when I was a kid. We saw ONE on our recent trip to Virginia and I commented on it when we passed that they are so rare now.
No you don't see those anymore. There's a couple near where I live, because the surrounding areas are abandoned lonely farms. They're a thing of the past, sadly!
Very nice shot...I love windmills
We have plenty of wind and plenty of those new modern turbines, but like most of these writers, I love the old ones too. I love the noise they make when there is just enough wind, and how they look on the farm. Jo
You're right...you don't see many of these anymore. Especially working ones. Great shot of this. It brings back memories of the one we had when I lived on the farm.
I really like these old windmills too. Now in a lot of places there's those huge wind generators scarring up the countryside. Not nearly as much eye appeal as the old windmills.
Nice looking windmill and it does look like a working one. We have a few out this way. MB
I like your shot of this "working" windmill. I wish more of the old windmills could be restored to running shape even if not actually pumping.
I do like the windmills! They're becoming so rare and we don't have them here with our terrain. I do occasionally see the smaller, ornamental versions, but those don't count. LOL!
I'd love to have windmill in our back yard. I see small ones at HEB ever so often for sale, but they want over $100 for them. There is a big one down the road where it's not country anymore and they moved the farm house and barn out...left the windmill and the property is for sale for commercial so it is lonely...wish there was some way to get it to my back yard, but I'd bet that would cost a fortune to get it hauled here. Sad. (but I still want it....your picture, not the windmil....well, the windmill, too)
Lindas fotos! Aqui próximo também tenho o prazer de observar moinhos assim! São lindos. Abraço. Ailime
You certainly don't, but it's good to meet you! :)
I love windmills! Great shots!
Oh~ that is awesome! I would love to have a windmill... *sigh*...
It's a wonderful windmill!!!!
What a great old windmill.. I just got some shots of one on a winery in solvang. Great shots once again my friend. Hugs~
I just love those old windmills...I tried to catch a few shots of them while zipping down I-40 when we drove across country to visit family one summer.
Nothing like a cool drink of water from a windmill on a Hot Texas day! Good pics, including my favorite horned bovine friend!
It's great that it is still working. Like the longhorn.
Come to the Nebraska sand hills if you want to see more : ) Great photos of them.
this is a wonderful windmill!great shots!
Definitely a beauty! I love windmills. I love cows, too, so I was happy to see Ms. Longhorn peeking out from behind :)
I love windmills!
Nice. Love the cow peeking through the bars.Felicia
There are a few of these in operation nearby and it always reminds me of how spoiled we are. Yes, we could still be self sufficient if necessary. Great shots!
These old beauties have left us because they unfortunately became obsolete. It's hard to tell if this one is still in use.
I wonder if these are making a come-back? They're so cool, and make a lot of sense.
I fear most and no longer operation. So it is a treat to see them when they are. Great find!
We only have one local windmill that I know of and I am pretty darn sure it doesn't work. I wouldn't want to meet that longhorn in a bad mood!
dat ziet er nog heel goed uit.
Everything but the pictures are very nice.I like.Lucia
No windmills out here. I think they're so neat.
I like seeing that one - - such a nice comfortable contrast to the new "propeller" windmills that are providing power.
We dont get many old windmill here now only those dam great wind turbine's for electric.......If i see any, i will take a photo and post it.peter
I love windmills, I could sit and watch them all day.
Just returned from my second cataract operation. Was wondering what the windmill is used for. Pumping water?
I love windmills! We have one but right now it's lying on its side while we try to decide where to put it. It will be functional. Have you been to the windmill museum in Lubbock?
Dearest Theresa,Great windmill photo and the curious Ms. Longhorn is funny too.Hugs,Mariette
We have a few windmills around here. They're still used, where there's no electricity to run a pump to draw water for the livestock.There's something appealing about a windmill.
Good windmill picture. We still have a lot of them down here but some have parts missing and not functional any longer.
Ms Longhorn is looking at you and at the windmill, are you trying to steal it???????????
Great shots of the windmill AND Ms. Longhorn - two Texas treasures! ~TMR~
T, these things are so stereotypical of the prairies and the west! Most don't seem to be operational anymore. I think this one is!
Ohh, i saw a cow :-)
I love windmills. I also like Longhorns.
It does look like it's still in use! We have quite a few windmills around here still. The new thing though is solar power instead of wind...just not quite as picturesque. ;)
A great serie of photos!
What a lovely structure! I like the longhorns in the background too!
Beautiful photo of the windmill against the sky. I always wanted one of these to say goodbye to high electricity rates. Love the shy longhorn! xoxo
I love windmills...love Mr. Longhorn....
Not too many around here working anymore, mostly broken.
There is an operational windmill near my property down south. I love it!
Wonderful windmill Tex!Great pictures!Hope you have a nice day!Dimi..
Judging by the PVC piping (certainly not original), I suspect you are correct, good to see it's being taken care of. We have a few around these parts, one of which I'm pretty sure is still running (at least the vanes are moving)
These are iconic...what I have associated with Texas & Oklahoma since childhood.
Dearest Theresa, beautiful windmill, I have never seen before in my life, here we collect water from the rain;).
You are right we don't see many windmills like that anymore. How cool to have one though!
So wonderful to see... we are covering our beauty spots with massive modern wind farms tho.Not so nice to see.
If the cost of power goes up much more, you may see a comeback!
I've always loved those windmills!
Love the windmill! I would like a miniature one for my yard.
Most of the windmills in these parts are in tatters like many of the barns. Terrific that this is in good working order.
John has always wanted a windmill. Love the cows in the background.
Water? You are making me love Texas!ALOHA from WaikikiComfort Spiral ~ > < } } ( ° > <3
They look so Texas to me, and with the longhorn added, they are just perfect.
I don't ever see any in my neck of the world- windmills, that is. See plenty of moos- longhorn and others.
You are right!
NICE... Haven't seen one of these in a long time. Thanks T.
A welcome sight. I just love them .... anything that has to do with harnessing power from nature.
Windmill Wednesday. Great title.
I didn't see the longhorn either - thanks for pointing her out!
I like the old gate too.
Windmills really are becoming a lost treasure--I love seeing them!!
What a beauty! I like Ms Longhorn too! Great photos!
Oh, TexWis, so many to catch up with and this one, with the charming windmills (working, yet!) and especially with the Longhorn, is an absolute winner! Warning about my post: maybe just check out the eagle section.
The ones around here get so beat up by the wind. Usually just the tower left standing.
Even I haven’t seen this model of windmills for long time here. Nowadays windmills are more used for producing electric. Simply beautiful photos :)
I love old windmills. Remember having one on our farm way back when.
I remember our windmill and well as a kid. I always thought it was pretty cool. I also remember the outhouse. Not so cool...
That is awesome - there is a smaller (probably more for decoration) windmill at Tractor Supply that I always admire every time I go there. I've always loved windmills.
I like those windmills.
The ones I do see ever any more or broken down remnants...this one definitely does look like it is still operating!
LOVE it, looks like rains'a comin'... Thank you for joining in 'Rurality Blog Hop #3' Hope to see you next Wednesday for #4...
I love to see the windmills working on a breezy hot day.
Love these pics!
I wish I had a windmill - working or not. Ms. Longhorn added a nice Texas touch to this shot. :)
Amazing, what these things can accomplish.
nice captures! i like the guy playing peek-a-boo too.
