I am always in search of a beautiful old barn and this one did not disappoint. The gracious owner was kind enough to allow me on his property and told me this barn was made in 1908. Clearly it has been well maintained as evidenced from the prime condition of the roof.
When I walked up to the fence these three all converged to come say hello. The big beauty on the right had a head as big as a house but was friendly enough for a good quick rub. I am wondering if I am not looking at a family portrait with the foal being in the middle.
In short order the white horse was the only one who wanted to hang out with me and was quickly comfortable enough to let me rub his face and touch his strong head.
Do horses know that whatever pleasure I might give they return ten times over? There is something so nourishing about being in their presence, and I am filled with childlike joy.
A handsome barn found in the country up in Northern Colorado…There is a corn crop ready for harvest and this barn looks to be set up to unload a crop by way of chute, much like a silo would.A closer look at the intriguing and possibly unusual set up for loading tractors or trucks.
I will never tire of the simple beauty of barns and the life of a hard working farmer.
Darn, another barn. I am admittedly obsessed and I think I know why. They represent a simple life comprised of hard work and simple rewards. They are beautiful and each one uniquely elegant. And, growing up in New York City, this kind of beauty was foreign to me.
