View of the Barn:
I don't have a pic of the front part of the barn. We have three parts of the barn, the old barn (original barn on the property built 40+ years ago and added onto), the upper aisle (3 10x20 stalls, 6 10x12 stalls, tack room, wash rack, hay and grain storage) and the lower aisle ( 10 10x14 stalls, groom stall, two tack rooms, grain storage, leather shop, and apartment). The indoor arena separates the upper and lower aisle, with the old barn being off the west side of the indoor. The outdoor arena is on the east side of the barn.
|Looking towards the barn from the fields. The lower aisle is closest to us, and the old barn is the shorter part on the left.|
|The lower aisle was added to the barn in 2010. This was mid construction. Sliding door opens into the indoor. |
My ponies live in the lower aisle now, but before 2010 Phoenix lived on the upper aisle. All the lower aisle stalls have custom made v-shaped gates, except for Buddy. His gate rusted off the hinge and had to be replaced with a regular gate. All the horses have boxes in front of their stall provide by my BOs. I usually keep grooming supplies, treats, and wraps in mine.
|Buddy and Phoenix are next to each other, McKenna is a few stalls down. |

|Summer grass field!|
|Being able to gallop up the hill on the grass!|
|The fact that the ponies can be ponies and live outside in groups for at least part of the year.|
