I've joined in with Karen at Brayton Homestead Interiors
for her Barn Party! I'm sure each and every one of the participants
is either a 'Barn Chick' or one at heart!
I'm sharing pictures of barns that have somehow
been a part of my life or
have touched my
in some way!
~I first set eyes on this barn when I was 9 years old~
I was totally horse CrAzY!
I came here to look at my first horse...
(He really was a Shetland, Welsh mix),
Here's the thing about my first horse (okay pony),
this should be a
to anyone out there
thinking of buying their
child a horse or pony...
he was a beautiful boy
(Yeah, that was another
me off, rear up and hit me
in the head, try his darnedest
to rub me off on the porch rail
or anywhere else he could...
I so badly wanted to love him
even though he seemed to hate me.
the day I got my (real) horse,
then he'd whinny at me and run the fence
trying to get my attention when I was leaving
on my horse. That's when I first realized
he'd changed his mind and wanted to
be my friend, but sadly I'd moved on...
~Jennings Park Barn~
I first came to this barn a little later, when my
came to clean it out as a club project.
It was still a smelly old barn and we
cleaned it out and were able to
have a big Halloween party there
as payment, it was so much
Today the whole farm is utilized as
a park with many things to do for
all ages, I take my grandchildren
there to play!
This barn came into my life when I was in Jr. High,
I met Kathy at school, she'd just got
a horse and was renting a pasture and Barn
yep, this is it, but it was old and white
I have to say this barn is very close to
the school I work at. I've always
daydreamed about buying it and
living there, it has a creek that
runs below the knoll behind it!
It's being taken care of and almost
looks like it could be used as an
artist studio or something?!
This beautiful barn is on our route to the river where we
take our dog to swim and I hunt for heart rocks
for my collection!
I've always admired it and now after meeting Mary
the owner, (who has a business in the milk house,
to the left), I'm happy to know it's truly loved!
This next picture is on her property as well, it
must house a tractor!
~worth an honorable mention~
Looove those barn doors!
This grand barn is truly beautiful, I'm not sure if it's
but it's used for weddings or whatever you'd
like to rent it for!
It's just across the freeway from the
river road barn
the white fencing is beautiful
and holds the most gorgeous
draft horses I've ever
~Beautiful Farm Boys~
~This windmill was out in the middle of the horse pasture~
my little garden 'barn' shed!
I hope you've enjoyed the barns that have
in some way
Please go visit all the other
and see their beautiful barns!
Always a Barn Chick,
