It's blog hop time!! The Process of Learning and the sprinklerbandit wanted to do a "show us your barn" series to give us something to think about other than winter. Thanks guys!
1. view of barn: Well I don't have a barn so much as a giant field.
|Lucky ponies with crazy lots of turnout|
In case you want to join my winter bleck check out the sweet mess it was yesterday
Yes that is water flowing down the hill because the ground is still frozen an inch down. But the horses are content and this too shall pass.
2. Horse living space, um same as above
3. The tack room. So this is my semblance of a barn, but it isn't for horses just stuff.
|Love the classy wood|
|And who can forget this guy?|
|I love bridles!|
4. View of where I ride: So lucky here, I may not have an arena but I have 100 acres of naturally sandy footing.
|But the open space is amazing|
|Riding in Diva's and the boy's field|
5. Favorite feature?
|Trailer and car in my 'circle'|
I used to keep my horses at my mom's place, but she moved. So a very good friend that owns this place let me move in (well my horses not me). We take turns feeding morning and night and it is totally laid back. I brought some of my own fencing and water tanks and feeders and such. She has three adorable ponies and two Andalusian/TB crosses. The strange pile o' stuff seen above is her 'boneyard.' She is an amazing deal finder and is just finishing up the house with almost all deals. The 'boneyard' is the left overs and has actually been organized and cleaned up since these pics were taken. I'm kind of on the backside of things and cleaned out my area. There are future plans for arenas, but as far as board for free/trade I can't complain. The arena you have all seen pictures of me riding Diva (and Gunner, Zyda, Gigi, Courage, and Bridger) in is actually where sprinklerbandit is and she did a lovely barn tour. I ride the BO's horses in exchange for board so that is where my guys are for random weeks.
