Our barn was always a hovel. Creaking, swaying, dark, drafty. It definitely was not the most inviting place, and I always hated it. Just this past summer, dad decided to take down part of it (the part that was practically about to collapse =P) and close in a small piece of it.
I really like the new place-for once I can actually access all four corners, and be able to walk through in my sandals without getting...feces..up to my ankles. There's two stalls currently, one big run-in area for my dad's three, and he's currently in the process of building standing stalls. I really want to make the area he's building standing stalls in into a tack room, but dad's way too stubborn -.-
How do you guys keep your saddles "safe"? If I left my saddle in the barn, the mice and rats would have it eaten in a month. Our Jack Russell is a really good hunter, but she's only one dog and fails to keep the rodent population totally under control. And of course, we can't keep barn cats 'cause the dogs would chase and maybe even kill them.
Anyways, me and my friend are going to clean out the new barn in a few weeks (it's pretty bad), so I'll see if I can get pictures then. Till then, I don't think I want
to show off our barn
