Barns and Indoors?

I've always been curious about what everyones barns and indoors look like, lol. We always see pics of everyones horses, now let's see where they live! I'm going to the barn Tues morning so my hubby can meet my shareboard OTTB,(more like dragging him kicking and screaming, lmao.) He's not a horse person, but now that our daughter is riding, he's being tolerant. I'll post pics in a few days!

Here's the indoor arena (these were taken in the summer): We also have an outdoor, & 2 roundpens.

Hehe I was guiding Ozzy (old boy, he just retired) over small jumps. He can't jump as high as he used to, since he's old. Love him!

Entrance to the barn (srry it's dark)- LOTS of stalls & room!

PopTart, is that your barn, I have been trying to get some opinions from people who have those type of barns. Have been thinking about putting one on my farm. Could you pm me or give me you pro and cons about that arena? I am wondering how well they hold up to wind, ice, and snow?

The only pic I currently have has a horse in the way but I will post it anyway. The isle is dirty because we keep our dogs tied there and there is a wheelbarrow parked right in the middle.

Yes, that's the place where I ride at, & they really do hold up nice. In the winter, if it's windy we close it (there's a big door kinda thingy) & it keeps the wind right out! It is not too warm in the winter as it's not heated, but believe me, it does help! I really like it. It keeps you cool in the summer, too, since it's like a shade!

I don't have a barn or an indoor. Wild and fancy free for me :]

Also, when I ride in the outdoor arena (which can also be used for dressage) I like it too, esp. In the nice spring days!

Here's a pic of the indoor. (Max is guarding the gate. ) It's been converted into an indoor paddock because the one's outside are deep rock hard mud with ice on top. It's really nice in the summer though, when it's all cleaned up. It's supposed to be the biggest indoor in northwest Indiana. That might've changed though. It's been used for many Brian Newburt and Jerry Munns Clinics.
The only problem is that now there is no where for me/boarders to ride.
The stalls go around the indoor, about 20 stalls all together. We have a newer add-on to the barn that contains 7 stalls. The original barn's doing alright for being over 100 years old. Lol

Nice pics everyone! Keep them coming! I went out to the barn to visit Stevie this morning, but forgot to take pics of the barn, lol. My husband was whining that he was too cold(wah wah wah) so I was trying to keep him happy. Oops. I'll get them soon!
