"Our homes, imperfect as they are, must be a haven from the chaos outside. They should be a reflection of our eternal home, where troubled souls find peace, weary hearts find rest, hungry bodies find refreshment, lonely pilgrims find communion, and wounded spirits find compassion.” ~ Jani Ortlund

The Barn In November
I wanted to show you how the barn is looking here in mid-November. Tim and my dad have worked at it very hard and it now is being used as the horses' shelter. It has been fun to watch them with it - they like it alot!
These doors are the dutch doors. They will be getting their upper door this week. Tim will be working on the sliding door for the shed area which you can see a corner of on the right side of the photo. Hay, grain, flax seed and the mower are stored in here.
Here you can see a shot from the dutch door side of the barn looking out toward the pasture. Until we get the doors on that side they are using their stalls like a run in shelter.
Sandy likes to look out on this side.
So does Cheyenne...
Here is Lindsay giving Sandy a treat...the stalls are built so the horses can see each other, they really like that.
They are so funny - without the pasture side doors on we can't close them into the barn yet and often we find them in the same stall...Can you see Cheyenne in the background looking into the shed area?
This view is from the pasture. The trim still needs to go up and in the spring we will be painting the barn red with white trim. It is really a blessing already.
It is a great benefit having a husband who can use different skills to build such a building. I am so proud of him!
