Good Fences #60

DSC_2093 - Copy
Joining Tex at Good Fences this Thursday. This is a horse barn near Columbia, Missouri. I have used this click previously for Barn Charm but from a different perspective without the gate. CH and I both love passing this barn on our way to Columbia. They have horses that look to be some type of gaited horse… Tennessee Walker or maybe Standardbred… both of which are very popular here. There are also several llamas that seem quite interested in the vehicles passing by on the highway. As you can see, the day I clicked this picture, llamas and horses were not cooperating.

I finally did it, Tex!

              1. BFF and I take turns with back pain too. He has problems more often than me . . . probably because he does more than me. Plus he’s older. 😛

                Hope you both feel STRONG and STURDY as you move through the week.

  1. Pretty classy place I must say. The entrance fence alone speaks volumes. If one can afford to enter then you sure will have your eyes full. I bet those horses are beautiful to ride. Be worth it all. .

    1. Michel, I googled “haras du Pin”… what an amazing equine program and the grounds and stables are phenomenal! Forty breeding stallions! The Percheron, a favorite of mine, and also the English Thoroughbred. The Selle Francais is used as jumper and event horse here in the US, along with several other breeds of warmbloods. I love that your daughter is a fan of horseback riding. Thank you for telling me about the “haras du Pin” French school.

  3. You’d want a rocker and a glass of wine – I’d like that rocker with a BOTTLE of wine………that place is spectacular! My first thought before seeing where the photo was taken was “Kentucky”……….why? Maybe because I’m a Kentucky girl……..but it’s TRULY magnificent.

    Hugs, Pam

    1. It is a very nice barn but you know you live in a state with most magnificent equine facilities! Missouri is pretty horsey but Virginia is spectacular! We have a college an hour away from us where I hang out occasionally that has several majors in equestrian studies. I missed the boat… er, horse there!
      Hugs to you , Pam

  4. Wowzer, and that’s just the barn! I love the gate- too bad the llamas weren’t out and about.

  5. Hello Pix! So glad I saw this gorgeous shot. It seems these fabulous barn facilities have good gates in common with one another too. There’s a big fancy barn up the road from me which houses horses that are in quarantine coming into the US. They have a very fancy-schmancy gate which I will try to click for you. Hope your back feels better soon too.

        1. No, no sciatica. Just a loosey goosey feeling in my left hip and lower back that just finally went out. Like one of those skeletons at Halloween. I have had it happen before, CH too. CH’s brother is a chiropractor and I have an acupuncturist that I see at my Women’s Health Center. It just takes time and I am not a very patient person. I have things to do and places to go… 😀

          1. oh, how strange, Pix. Well, thank god it’s not sciatica although your situation sounds tough too. BH had terrible back problems for years and eventually had surgery which fixed him good. But when I think of how long he suffered, well, I certainly wouldn’t have been as nice as he always was. Some of us deal better with pain than others. I hear such great things about acupuncturists and back pain too.

  6. I know where that barn is! Your photo reminded me that I’d taken a quick snap out the window of it last year but it’s not very good so I haven’t used it. I need to get out and get some barn and fence shots. If it ever quits raining. We were under a tornado warning this evening. Have a nice weekend!

    1. It’s okay Patti, no worries about missing the post. I haven’t been real good about getting around to everyBODY’s blog to comment either. We have been a bit busy here and blogging, Instagram, and all things social networking have been taking a backseat! I am heading to your blog in a few minutes… 😀 I am glad though that you found me, because I get lost easily… 🙂

    1. I would think it might be familiar to you… on 63 not far out of Columbia. I have used it on the blog before also. Summer would be so much better if it would stop raining and dry out just a bit. I am ready for Fall. Hope you are having a great summer, nice to see you!

    1. Good Morning, Bacon… 🙂 Maybe some other little piggies live there. You could meet new friends… or maybe you would like to have the place to yourself. How do you feel about llamas? There was a new foal on the ground last week… a little bay.
