    I've been busy in the barn and garden so I'm behind on reading everyone's posts. Sounds like everything is going well though. Thanks for all the pictures! It makes it so much more interesting doesn't it?
    I've found my barn project is taking me much longer than expected. It's slow going staining boards that are already assembled and that have two years worth of dirt and grim on them.
    Yesterday I scrubbed down the wash stall, the metal had been sitting in our barn for quite awhile so it went up dirty and while I did spray it off when it was first finished it needed a good scrubbing. There are two sections that I need to stain to finish that area but had to be cleaned first. The wash stall was the cleanest it has ever been so I thought I would take a few pics. Who knows one day I may have a website again and this will save me from having to clean it for pictures LOL
    I'm going to be whining about how sore and tired I am for some time it seems so you might as well have some pictures to go along with.

    Wash stall, I really need to add some sort of hook to hang my hose on or get one of those overhead thingys.

    Tie stall, Cleaned and polyurthained over the weekend. I purposely left the bottom board because I'm thinking of painting the floor and bottom board with the Herculiner bed liner stuff.

    Here's the tack room door again with trim painted.

    And here's a sitting area next to what will eventually be tack lockers. Painted and polyurthained last week.

    Feed room and shavings room, cross bucks have been painted but the rest needs poly.

    You can also see in that picture the area above the stalls that get a coat of poly.

    Hay loft area, thinking of painting the ladder.

    And a shot of the barn aisle. Cross bucks get painted and everything else poly.

    Same with the ends where the doors are.

    Too far for me : ( closest one is about 30 min away. What I hate about CB is that I like everything on the menu so it's a hard decision. I love their salads too.

    CS- enjoy

    Absolutely beautiful barn FC! Wow!

    Glad things went well for you Nicker!

    Sorry I am still using screen names...still can't keep names straight.

    Stan, my hubby had his saddle come lose once and end up under the horse...luckily he bailed because the horse he was riding was a crazy mare that took off bucking!

    TJ, so happy you found a place to take lessons! Addie looks very sweet!

    Love all the pictures..thanks for sharing everyone.

    And thanks to all of you, now I want to go to Cracker Barrel for lunch and I am stuck with a PB sandwich.

    Here is a pic of one of my favorite places to ride. It was taken up on a mountain while we were at Mcginnis Meadows Cattle Ranch in Libby, MT. I am very afraid of heights and we went up some treacherous terrain but I enjoyed every minute!

    Sherry the barn is magazine quality. Beautiful in all of it.


    Ladona the view behind you is gorgeous and looking at the smile on your face I don't think the heights bothered you too much.

    Lori, it's awesome news to hear your butthead was stressed about work and finally came around to realize what he was doing. Heres to many more years of sleep ins.

    I've been researching some get-a-ways for our church board and found a place in Pine Mountain,Ga that rents cabins. The place looks beautiful with very nice amenities.


    Here is the link to the cabin I am looking at. There are 5 couples and a single man so 11 bodies. Let me know what you think.
