Share Pictures of Your Barns!

Here's my barn at my family's vacation house in Vermont. It's a really old modified dairy barn, soon to be painted red with white trim, and we will be making changes to make it suitable for horses over the years.

ETA: We have already gotten rid of all the weeds surrounding the barn, mowed the pasture, got rid of the saplings encroaching on the pasture, cleaned out the dairy of all the trash, and then stacked random rocks into huge towers onto a boulder :)

I love old barns! Please share updates with us as you do work on it Almond, I would love to see it.

Here's some of my boring barn, it's old but not old enough to be cool lol!
(pic was of new strawberry bed and worn out fence that just got replaced :wink:) But the front part is the stall barn w/12 stalls, back is the indoor and also has a foaling stall in it.

Stalls we built ourselves many years ago.

Don't have any other pics on my pc, I have a good sized tack & feed room at the front of the stall barn and an indoor wash rack next to it.

I love old barns. I also would like updates on progress.

This is the barn where I work. We were having a party there the day the photo was taken, hence the giant beer bottle.

I love seeing pictures of barns! We started from bottom last year when we brought our horses home. Old barn, but we put 2 stalls and a tack room in there...Nothing fancy at all, and still working on making it more function..but I love it! This is a great link, gives me some good ideas :)

I will share updates! We're painting it next weekend, a bit of a darker red, and are recovering all of the windows and repairing them.

This is our barn that we just had built last January (the other, that had been standing for ~30 years, we lost to fire).

Some of these pictures were taken at different times so in some of them, the panels are set up differently. This is much more efficient than the old one. I don't show horses so I don't have a need for 20 box stalls. Instead, we opted for the open south side and panel horse runs. Easier to care for, easier to clean, more room for the horses to move around, etc. Plus, if we need to, we can move them, make them bigger/smaller, and arrange them however we need or want to.

This one also shows the 13x13 tack room that Dad and I built ourselves.
