My barn isn't anything fancy--it's actually pretty old and kind of ugly--but it has every amenity Sir Robert and I need and the care is great.
1. View of the barn:
|the bank barn was the original structure--BO has added on a lot since she bought it.|
her house is in the background to the left.
|the aisle when you first walk in, complete with a friendly dutch hippo greeter.|
the feed room is straight back behind the gate the the left.
|the courtyard where seven stalls are, and three more stalls are in the overhang.|
|from the courtyard through here to the main barn|
|the main barn. bobby's stall is to the right where his giant head is.|
the tack room is straight back behind the sliding door.
2. My horse's living space:
|12'x14' stall that he's in from 7am-2pm|
|the uncle jimmy's hanging ball is still alive!|
he ignores the giant salt block which is why it's covered in shavings.
|he prefers his fancy hanging himalayan salt block.|
3. View of the tackroom:
|there's a school horse tack room, but all the boarders get their own locker.|
i also have a tack trunk in the carriage house with my "keep at the barn, but not in my locker" excess.
4. View of where we ride:
|the outdoor and round pen.|
the xcountry field goes up the hill in the paddock to the left in the distance.
5. My favorite feature:
|the turnout situation at this barn is amazing. the run-ins are huge, and|
there's so much pasture space things don't get muddy.
this is the front half of bobby's paddock. it continues behind the fence at the top.
Aaand I don't know how to do fancy script or whatevs, so you don't get the fancy link to everyone else on the bottom. Sorry.
