Our new barn has sat empty for a year, maybe more. Nature is always eager to restore her hold on a landscape, to spur her weeds and vines to tangle and twist, to encourage trees to drop entire limbs, to coat everything with dust, cobwebs, and rust.
It always seems daunting to me, I have never done well seeing to the other side of a mess. But our two horses wer coming 'home' on Sunday...
We went to work, clearing the aisle, dumping trash, weed eating and mowing. Actually DH did nearly everything while I worked to set up shop. I did the horse safety check of the fences. I cleaned troughs, set up our seating area. I imagine our horses there, right in the empty, clean stalls.
We are ready. Except we have no hay. Which is our first stop, tomorrow.
By the way on the picture viewing out through the stall you'll see a gray building. That's my office building... Couldn't be closer if I tried.
By the way, I'm updating Crib Notes again. You can find a recent post here.
