Spooky barn stories? Lets hear them!

I truthfully don't have any real spooky stories besides one, which isn't too bad.

My gelding was at the trainers and had colicked that day while I was at work so after work I rushed with my two friends and boyfriend down to see him. It was in the middle of winter and pitch black outside. He was in an outdoor covered stall and in the doorway back into the barn my friend saw a black shadow...she's like who else is here? I said noone besides us and my boyfriend and other friend were in the truck waiting...I freaked and had to leave. Way too sketchy for me. Also as we were in the barn all the way in the back we could hear clanking.

I texted the Bo and asked about this and apparently there was a night watcher who lived on the property who would check over the horses At night who died in his camper on the property one night randomly. She said she thinks its him checking on the horses at night. Creepy!

That's creepy as all get out O.o


Me and my friend were feeding her horses and the clouds were doing this funky, almost cartoon covering over the moon. Just being silly, in a ghost voice I said "and theeeenn the coyotes begin to hoooowlllll". Suddenly a large family of coyotes were howling and jabbering like crazy, literally within half a second of me saying that.
We ran. Fast. Hahaha

Well of hes checking on the horses chances are hes pretty nice, if he cares enough to check on them even after life.
The barn I used to work at had the creepiest washroom, we couldn't use it and no body wanted to. It was always dark in there and old next to useless tack was kept in there until it could be disposed of properly (there's a dump down the way so I think they were just waiting until they had enough stuff to make the trip worthwhile, more then a few ols school saddles and bridles) and the tack made creepy shapes and shadows around the room. There was an old rain sheet or something hung up that looked a bit like a person.
That said most barn are creepy at night. Even the ranch barn, which I've slept in creeps me out a little mostly because it's right at the edge of a forest so small animals can get in easily and I'm never sure if that rustling in the corner is a friendly barn cat or. Face eating raccoon.

At one barn, the back barn (there was two) was said to be haunted. It was horse camp and we dared eachother to run through with only a flashlight (it was night). So I hop the gate into the barn and walk/jog with my trusty flashlight. I hear a wheelbarrow and immediately run for all I'm worth to the opposite side. Other people have heard what sounded like foot steps, seen weird things there, etc.

At another barn we did a seance in an old house (again, at night). A few times we thought we could hear noises, but nothing too creepy happened.

At my old boarding barn years ago, we had to put down the owners old appy after he broke his leg somehow in the pasture. I would always hear a horse walking down the barn isle while feeding at night after that. Anytime I would look out of a stall it would stop and I never did see anything.

The haylift of that barn ran the entire length on one side. I would always hear rustling in the hay and footsteps. I was one scared 16 year old. It got to where I was scared to be by myself at night in the barn. The man who worked there would stay. Turns out, it was a boy I had dated and dumped. He would come every night and hide in the barn. He got caught when he got brave enough to drive his car down to the barn instead of walk. We saw GIS car and called the police and they searched the barn and found him.

Not that spooky, but the outside barn light (set on a timer to come on at dark) goes off every once in a while. We also had a radio that would start playing randomly, change stations, changing volume, etc. It was ancient, probably thirty years old, and I would literally yell at it and the volume would jerk up suddenly. Don't know what was up with that, but it died this spring .

I was bringing in this ginormous Warmblood who is well known for dragging people, plowing you over to get to his dinner or otherwise being a total PIA if he thinks he can get away with it. The outside light is on a sensor but only stays on for maybe 10 seconds? It went off while I was informing Mr Gigundo that he was not allow to run into the barn while dragging me and all of a sudden this large squishy thing JUMPED ON ME!

So there I am in the pitch dark, screaming and dancing around trying to get it off. Finally did, just as the light switched back on from all my moving around.... it was a giant toad! I hear this long sigh and the Warmblood looks at me like "Well, if you're done being an idiot... I'm hungry!". He stood like a rock that entire time.... guess screaming, flailing idiots are worthy of not being a brat?
