Smile Barn, then and now, after the fire.

Just thought I would share some pictures of our barn and area. It has changed a lot since the day it burned. The guys we had cleaning the area up did a great job. I'll try to match the angles as best I can so you can see the difference.

Before (day of the fire):






The one area that is still standing is the area where the tack room is. It was still structurally sound for the most part so we are going to leave that standing until the last minute. We will tear that down when they deliver the new barn before they start construction. This way, we still have a secure place to store our saddles, tack, and dog food for the time being. The new barn is supposed to be here no earlier than mid-December and will be completed no later than February. I have color printouts of what the new one will look like that I will get scanned and share as soon as I can.

I am getting really excited and am looking forward to getting the new one set up.

Oh gosh, I hope all horses got out ok.

There was a huge fire in a riding school over here a few days ago. Luckily the head girl and the YO managed to get all of the horses and the tack out. Unfortunatly the head girls caravan, then entire barn and 2 cars were obliterated.

Thankfully, we weren't keeping horses in there at the time of the fire, we were just using it for storage. No loss of life, just quite a bit of tack loss. Fortunately, most of our saddles/bridles were mostly undamaged. That's horrible about the fire over there Faye, my thoughts are with them.

SUJ, me too.

Wow! I must have missed this. When did your barn burn? I'm so sorry, but glad things are working out for you!

RG, I'll get it up here one of these days when I am actually at my Dads for long enough to scan them LOL.

Dee, it happened at the end of August but everything seems to be working out okay now.
