    Wow Farmchic, just wow! Your barn is absolutely beautiful. Stunning.


    I am alone when I ride, so I have very few photos.

    The first was a pretty stupid photo to take as I was in trot and about to pop over that fence.



    You were in trot and about to pop over the fence. Did you make it?. Oh what was the horse doing.

    Its 6-00am Wednesday off to work now crims to see and nutbars to deal with.

    Thanks Rick <hugs>

    Laugh Stan, yes I worded that badly. We made it, it was a teeny tiny little fence.

    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.
    Attachment 209290
    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.

    Thought I would post some updated pics of Boo and his leg injury.

    You can see the knats on it after washing it before the salve goes on.


    Just for comparison this was the start of it..

    Thanks all for looking @ my me&Addie pics & commenting. Makes me feel good! Roaddy-Rick, soon I'll be in that saddle, & yes, Corgi-Ladona, Addie IS sweet. When Janice (instructor/owner of SkyView) took him out to take the pics, he even pulled her to get to me..this little boy "knows" something (Janice said "Oh! He sure does like you!") Cool. FarmChic-Sherry, your barn & the stall pics are beyond amazing, can I come clean?! (kinda like the scullery maid drooling to clean the fireplace grates in Windsor castle, just to be in the atmosphere..!)
    Have a question: my poop-clean day yesterday was in 98+ temps. Got sick (well,just dizzy/nauseous/tachycardic abit; heat related), as not used to manual labor in high temps (or anywhere,for that matter). Have admitted here being abysmally out of shape. Need to implement something real soon: have a Gazelle glider, & various hand weights (2,5,&8#). For next Monday prep, should I just get on the Gazelle for cardiovascular to start? (then get into the weights for upper body strength,& have some ideas for core strength stuff). Just not sure where to start. Am attempting to build up from ground zero, as have badly neglected my body for quite awhile. Any suggestions?

    Thanks all for your nice comments about the barn. Being married to a builder does have its perks It's been a long road to where we are but we're happy here and there's always work to be done to keep the kids busy and out of trouble.

    Tj- yes, your Addie looks like a sweetie : ) I bet the stall cleaning will get you in shape in no time. Can you start any earlier? Or later even would be better than middle of the day. You could put a fan on you while you work, drink plenty of water and wear light clothing.

    Roadyy what happen to Boo? It does look so much better now. I love that wound kote spray, It's easy to apply and seems to keep the bugs off too. Can you get that where you are?

    CS- how was your lunch? Did you get the cake?

    Thanks, Sherry; yes, next Monday plan to be out there @ 830 am; gives me 2 hrs to plunk away @ cleaning, then a break, then lesson 1100 am-ish. No fans possible, these are all outdoor pens,but going to carry my water bottle along w/me (& next Monday supposed to be high 80s instead of high 90s..Colorado plains are so weird..) Worth it all to be around the horses (& this is all giving me motivation to finally take care of myself again!)

    Looks good Rick.

    TJT, when I am working outside in the heat, I literally spray myself off with the hose fairly often. I am also not adverse to dunking my full head in the water through.
    It's not fitness, or lack of that makes you feel that way, it's from working hard in the heat. You need to have a way of cooling off.

    Rick, I would have freaked out if Isabella had an injury like that! But wow...it sure looks so much better!

    I meant to welcome Rosanne and forgot in my last post. So..welcome!!!

    Ok...I keep waiting for someone to ask why Alex's pics are upside down. Am I the only one that is seeing them upside down? Have I finally lost my mind? I was so afraid it would happen one day! LOL

    Alex's pics don't look upside down to me. You could have lost your mind, or I may have lost mine. When my kids were little I told them that they were driving me crazy. They said it wouldn't be a very far drive.
