Neglected Structures-FMTSO

 Friday My Town Shoot out- Neglected Structures. If you would like to post and link to FMTSO click HERE

Photos today are of the 25 acres horse/dog rescue ranch sitting in ruins. Our rescue dog, Baby Girl came from here.
 When we picked Baby up from this ranch Feb of 2002, it contained 30 rescued horses and 30 dogs and was pristine and beautiful, the sign that hung on this gate post said simply TELESIS

 Telesis  which means "planned progress"
 Our county had 649 foreclosures in the month of January and we have more than 5000 in our county with only 769 listed for sale.
 Divorce caused this neglected ranch.

That is a shame, it looks like it was a beautiful place. Your area sounds like an economic nightmare. We are very lucky that our town has survived the economy and is doing well.

Man - divorce you usually think of the kids getting hurt - I never thought of property being hurt. That is really sad - it was being used for such a good cause. sandie

I remember you telling about this place. It's such a shame to see it like this. The lady was helping so many animals.

So sad...always breaks my heart when you see places that once were pristine fall into disrepair. Hopefully someone will see it's potential and give it life again. Happy Weekend Sandra.

Sad for the the former owners; sad for the animals who would have benefitted!

Bagman and Butler said...

I'm so glad that the couple who owned this place did not abandon each other until after you got your dog from them.

Ginny said...

What a sad sight, so many unowned and neglected places in the last few years.

George said...

Your photos are very good, but sad at the same time. It's too bad that the ranch has been abandoned and neglected. It's also sad that the rescue ranch is no longer in existence.

GingerV said...

simple and poinyant - well done. the sadness and the waste of neglect is the same for whatever is lost.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

That is SAD, Sandra.... Too bad someone doesn't move in and buy that place and fix it up... I hate seeing things like this happening in our country...

Have a great weekend.
Hugs,
Betsy

That's a shame, it seems to have been a lovely place. Nice area you live and to see all those things. It's quite boring around here in the city, grey houses - narrow streets and such.
great photos again!
Hugs

It's sad that that has all gone to waste.

I've missed a lot of pretty spring color over here these last couple of days. Our sun is shining. I hope our color comes soon!

Have a happy weekend Sandra!

That is so sad; I hate hearing bad news.

Pauline said...

Every one of your shots speaks of sad abandonment. I hope it can be rescued before the years of neglect take their toll.

diane b said...

The weak economy sure has hit your area badly. This is a sad tale of a once vibrant property. Hopefully it will one day be salvaged and brought back to being used.

MizzKay said...

Such a waste of a beautiful place and property, although there are not any rescued animals being helped I'm sure the wildlife in the locality are glad of it. Some little critters need neglected places.

Rose said...

What a place this must have been! Sure hate to see the places go downhill so fast.

Rebecca said...

What a beautiful place, but I am more sad the they are not able to continue their rescue work there!
