    Thanks you guys. AB, I don't really have many good pictures of it before. I should talk to my Mom and see if she'll loan me her pix to scan. She took pictures while they were building it so they are much better than anything I have.

    I'll go ahead and post what I have though. It is mostly just pictures of horses where the barn happens to be in the background.

    Yeah, for an individual barn (not a boarding barn) it kinda is. It had 20 stalls, but when it was built, Dad was big in the training and show world and always had every stall full.

    Wow, I'm sorry to hear about your loss.. Definitely lucky that there were no animals in the barn! We do not stall our horses at night for this very reason.. We recently lost our barn in a tornado this past July, so its a good precaution, in my opinion (all of our animals were fine as well). Hopefully you enjoy the rebuilding process! I know I have so far.. At least the planning anyway. The waiting is a little less fun. Ha ha

    Well, it turns out that we lost more stuff than we thought. All the bridles and everything are okay (or at least will be when I get all the soot cleaned off and get them oiled up) but 4 saddles are for sure ruined and there are 2 more that are damaged, a little crispy in certain areas, but still mostly functional so we are waiting to see what the insurance adjuster says about them. Our old show rawhide bosal and horsehair reins were a loss as well . We went through and inventoried everything that was lost and the total was a little over $23,000 in just tack and equipment . I nearly **** and fell in it. I knew we had a bunch of stuff but I didn't think there was that much or that replacing it would be so expensive.

    *GASP* That's aweful! I'm so so sorry that happened! I have both snoring dogs on either side of me and I'll give my horses a hug tomorrow since I can't get out to them today. I have them lots of lovings yesterday though.

    I'm so glad no one was in the barn! I'm glad you'll be ok!
    *big hug to you and everyone else*

    I'm so glad the insurance is going to come through with it.

    Sorry for that... a kind of relapse again.
