Sunday Stills Challenge - Inside A Barn

This was definately a fun challenge!

My barn isn't so much a barn yet as it is just a storage and hay shed. It's a work in progress! The front section of it houses our hay and some split wood along with the few horsie supplies that are handy to have close to the hitching post and aren't residing in the trailer. These are some shots I got in there.


This is the wall of split wood that is next to the hay.


And of course in every barn is a little bit of baling twine.


And hay hooks.



And a pitch fork and empty grain bag for a garbage can.


Then we have the halter rack.



And the fly spray, Micro-Tek spray, Horseshoer's Secret hoof goop, and a whole bunch of other crap piled on every inch of that shelf that didn't make the final edit.


That and the grain and supplement tubs are about all that is in the front room of the barn.


The bigger back part is going to be the actual barn part, if we ever get stalls in there. We've got big, big plans for it, some day. 4 stalls, wash rack, tack room...someday. This is pretty much what it looks like right now...




The wheel barrow with a flat tire is ours, along with the riding lawn mower we got for free and the quad that we lost the key for. The barn came with the roll of flooring, all that junk and a mini fridge, an all-in-one printer/scanner/copier/fax machine (assuming neither of those work), a tire and a bunch of other random crap that we've been meaning to take to the dump, but just haven't gotten to yet.



This was pretty much the only picture I came up with in that part of the barn that was worth posting. It was the sun shining in under and thru the sliding door. Someday it will be all beautified and horsie. Someday.

I am so drawn to barns, probably because some of my most fulfilling times are experienced within their walls. Absolutely love your baling twine shot and the bottom barn door shot that captures the slight slipping in.

Those are really great pictures. Having never had a barn it's interesting to see what's inside them :)

You can see what I came up with over at my photo blog.

That last photo is my favorite. The little bit of sun peeking through the wood looks like a star! Beautiful!

Someday you will have your barn dreams come true. All the basics are there. It's gonna be amazing!

Nice tour of the details inside the barn. I like the light coming through the bottom and the saddles and stuff hanging on the wall.
