What's YOUR barn like?

I'm a big fan of the "Get to know ya" posts!

So lets hear it... what's your barn like? Where do you keep your horses? How big is your barn? What do you like to do at your barn when you're not actually riding? Who is your horse's best barn buddy?

Ok well I guess I'll start.

My barn is located in NY. It's a pretty big show barn that is really well maintained. (It's one of the nicest barns I've ever seen! I'm very fortunate to work here.) The only problem is that like with most show barns, most of the horses don't get much turnout. Luckily my mare goes out with a group of girls so they're out all day. Here's a picture of one of our rings. :)

Child in Time, It is the same thing just depends on what part of the country you're from as to what you call it.

I board my horses at the base stables right now until I can afford to have my own place. We have about 30 horses here but the place is pretty old so it's nowhere near as nice as some of your places. The nice thing is we have a few trails leading right up to the mountains so it's nothing to go for a two hour trail ride and not even leave home.

I'm inclined to think that the only (possible) difference between a barn and a stable is maybe the size and/or the amount of horses on the property? LOL, but then again, where does a "farm" come into the picture?

The riding stables where I go are quite large. There is an indoor stable area and an outdoor stable area. Horses are brought in during the day if they are to be ridden, otherwise they stay out in the paddock. All horses get put outside at night.
