  1. Wow! Incroyable!

    When I was 12, my aunt took me to see the royal lipizzaner stallions. We missed getting into the show, but one of the stable hands let us watch them coming/going from the barn. Your shot reminds me of that.

    Thank you so much for joining in & linking up to this week’s Barn Charm… I love barns & I love horses, esp when they’re Clydesdale horses, so this is awesome! =)

    1. No, the thanks go to you Tricia! I want to keep doing Barn Charm but I am going to have to get out and do some cruising and shooting!! Dianna from These Days of Mine gave me a link to a gal that lives on a Clydedale farm, maybe she was the other Clydesdale barn. I will have to check. I would love to talk to you about textures 🙂

    1. I know Cheryl, that place is not to be believed. I would love to work there. Can you imagine being there for foaling? I can’t do no more shopping, stick a fork in me. I..am..DONE! Your daughter is brave to take a group of kids. It’s a BIG place and lots to see! We had book club at The Coffee Brew House, have you been there yet? Best chicken salad sandwich I have ever had and SCONES!!!!

    1. Isobel, funny! That is exactly what I almost typed to you about the sound of the hooves on the video you put up. But I thought you would think I was a little strange loving that sound with all those beautiful black horse bodies to look at 🙂 Yes the Clydesdales are gorgeous. I love Draft horses.

  4. Love the shot! I always enjoy the Clydesdales when we visit Busch Gardens, and used to see them every year at the Cherry Festival in Traverse City, Michigan. They sure know how to make you feel small and insignificant!

  5. A-ha! You got the neener-neener on *me* this time!! I want to go visit the Clydes so bad – maybe I’ll tell the hubs that’s all I want for Christmas? It’s a thought…
    That is a gorgeous capture – love it!

    1. You have to go Tammy, it is a gorgeous place and the Clydesdales are awesome. We used to visit them all the time at Grant’s Farm when we lived in St. Lou. I couldn’t stay away. I believe they stop tours in October. Have fun at the Mercantile!

  6. Gorgeous photo Pix! It takes a lot of work to keep a horse barn that clean. I love hearing horses walk (clip clop) on a hard surface too, but I’ve never been around Clydesdales. Happy Holidays!

  7. Oh, I am so happy I found your blog this morning…..LOVE IT! My, goodness….I cannot believe I am actually seeing inside of the fab horse barn. We always post the outsides of the barns we see, so this is a special treat to get to go inside. It looks gorgeous in there….moolah and lots of it have gone into the building and preservation of this structure. Great contribution this week. genie

  8. Clydesdales are so majestic! We’ve been wanting to tour the Bush farm outside of Boonville. We found out the other day that the easiest way to do that is through the boats in Boonville. We are going to check that out in the Spring. Beautiful photo!

    Have a great day!

    1. Deanna I am so sorry for not getting back to you but I got food poisoning on Wednesday from Tuesdays book club and I am just beginning to feel like I am going to live 🙂 You will love Warm Springs Ranch! We have been three times now! Through the boats?

  9. Pix, on the day you posted this post my husband was in Merrimack, NH. at the Anheuser-Bush plant. After his inspection,(boiler-steam-nuclear) he was offered a tour of the Clydedales stables. He was simply amazed! The day before Christmas he returned once again and all the Clydedales were in their quarters, all called in from off the road. My husband who grew up with horses truly appreciated the grandness of their lifestyle. I got a sweatshirt! Beautiful barn photos. Blessings to all, Julie

    1. What a thoughtful Husband you have Julie! That is a coincidence, a good one. The AB Clydesdales are pampered giants and their barns are a delight to visit. Thank you for stopping by 🙂 I wouldn’t mind a sweatshirt myself, I will have to pick one up in the Spring 🙂 I think a picture of you in the sweatshirt with the chicken purse would be fun! I loved the shot with you leaning against the tree with one of the girls~sweet.
