Barn Raising

Obviously, you can tell from the scenery that this took place over the summer, not last week.

Step by step, day by day, our new barn grew out of the pasture. What a blessing it's been. It's given us a dry place to store hay and feed, as well as a dry place for the horses to "hang out". We've made simple stalls inside, so that we can feed the horses individually. No more fighting (well, they do argue over the top of the stalls), and each horse consumes its correct amount of feed.

Dh also has a dry place to store some of his equipment and tools.

On the right side of some of the photos, you can see the old run-in shed that was here when we bought the land. It has served the horses well as shelter, but in the past year some of the roof tin has blown off. The shed itself is much too rickety for anyone to attempt replacing the roofing.
