I don’t remember how I found this site, but it is a FB page that asks for photos of old barns – from anywhere. So, people send in their photos of old barns – or other peoples’ photos of old barns – from across the US and beyond. It is called, Friends of Old Barns. And, they also have a Pinterest page.

Now I’m hooked. I love viewing the daily new pics as I drink my coffee in the morning. It is as if I am sharing my morning with so many memories and graceful, stoic stories…
OLD BARNS – I WISH THEY COULD SPEAK TO ME
I love seeing all the different barn styles and shapes, all the different seasons and foliage as well as ‘feeling’ what the barn has to say.
Do you know what I mean?
When I look at an old barn, I immediately get a feeling for the place. Don’t you?
I just wish the old barns could speak… I wish they could tell us how many kids grew up climbing all over them…, how many animals were born there, how many mice, how many birds, how many hopeful/hopeless cowboys, how many secret rendez-vous, how many lives were saved, how many passings…
I so appreciate it when old barns are renovated or made into new dwellings.
When I win the lottery (I just haven’t won yet…), I will buy land for the mustangs and move several old barns onto the property. But for now, I simply drool and dream about the barns posted on the FRIENDS OF OLD BARNS site.
Here are some photos to brighten your Monday! And if you have barn photos, maybe you can send them to FRIENDS OF OLD BARNS!
DO YOU FEEL IT, TOO?!
JANUARY BUCKET FUND!
ARACELY! Paso Fino mare with a horribly infected face. Read her story here!
These are wonderful! Love these pics!
Did you know that there’s a (fairly new) cable channel called Ride TV and they have a show called “Wild About Barns” featuring the truly ancient ones, humble horse abodes, and barns that are being lovingly restored as well as new equine housing of the fairly luxurious variety. Lot of information on these lovely dwellings in that show!
