What is your favorite things while in the barn with your horse?

I did not know where to put this.
My baby boy is coming home to our new barn on Saturday and I am so excited to spend time with him, grooming, loving :)

I LOVE being in the barn when it is raining and the country radio is on :)

My question is, what music do you listen to or what calms you when your in the barn with your horse spending quality time together? What certain things do you do?

Thanks :)
Look forward to the responses

I always put it on the Wave (pop) and I love it , it also seems to keep the horses calm.

I agree. Being in the barn, just spending grooming/quality time with my horses is so wonderful. I had one of those days today: I spent a couple hours grooming everybody (all five), helping them shed the remains of their winter coats, trimming beards and bridle paths, detangling manes and tails. I always listen to CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation), they have great programs and music.

I love my time with them like this, and the oldest three really love standing in the barn and being pampered. The two youngsters are still a bit antsy but they will learn the pleasures of grooming some day. ;)

I'm a huge fan of grooming in my spare time! Spring is my absolute favorite because of the shedding hair and dried mud! ( I like the before and after feeling you get when you FINALLY get a clean horse lol) as for music, I listen to the Black Beauty soundtrack - it's calming, cute, and it's from a horse movie so it must be fitting! =D

I love grooming all of the horses in one day! I don't really go around the boarders horses though, they are usually aggressive.

My favorite time in the barn is late in the evening, when all the chores have been done, everyone has gone home and a cool breeze is blowing down the shed row. I can relax and watch the horses that have been turned out for the night, peacefully grazing and can listen to the horses that are in their stalls, munching on hay.

Right after I give him a bath and we are grazing waiting for him to (supposedly) dry off and the sun starts setting so it's not too hot......god I can't wait for summer!

My horse came out of a freaking dream.....<3

I love just being in the barn alone grooming my horses..It has to be one of my top five favorite places..I love it quiet. I like to be brushing one of the horses and hearing the others move around in their stalls, especially right after feeding. I like to hear them munching on their feed..Heaven!

Lol and, I just feel like being a snot right now because I am loving living in the south..it was nothing but sunny and 88 here today..Its been so nice the past few weeks..just had to say it..We are being punished with flies though. They are already awful here..ugh..

I am Sparkly Meanie Doodie Head and I approve this message!

I don't have a barn, but I love just going out and grooming all my horses and just spending time with them petting them and just watching them.

When I can't ride anymore, I shall keep horses as long as I can hobble along with a bucket and wheelbarrow. When I can't hobble, I shall roll my wheelchair out by the fence of the field where my horses graze, and watch them!
