Ranch Tour - Part 4 The Barns

It's barn tour time!  If you missed the other Ranch Tour posts, you can visit them here:



There are a total of 4 barns that line up in a neat little row.  It seems like every generation that lived there added a barn to the collection. 


This is the interior of the newest barn.  It was most recently used for horse stalls.  The picture below is of the attached tack room.  All of their saddles and tack are currently at another ranch with their horses.







This is barn number two.  (I don't know why I didn't take individual photos of each barn)  I believe that this is the oldest barn, and you can tell by the amount of compost that needs to be shoveled out.  Glenda is looking at a dead coyote that at some point in time found it's way inside and died.  The joys of living in the middle of nowhere.



Welcome to barn number three.  If I had to guess I would say that this was used as a calving barn.  Notice the windows along the wall, you can see right into the other barn.  Despite the barns being right beside each other, they really aren't connected.  They each have their own roof, and don't share any interior doors.



Above and below, is barn number four.  It contains a total of 4 stalls.  Because the step into this barn is quite high, I'm not sure what it was used for.  Of course 50 years ago, it probably wasn't like that.



That concludes Glenda's Ranch Tour.  I hope that you enjoyed the posts.  Soon they will start calving, so I am trying to get her to agree to weekly updates.  It's their busiest time of year, and you never know what might pop up.
