Unsettling


Both horses took a good 2 weeks to settle in - Reggie more so than Tivio. He acted flighty and nervous - probably due to the new smells. Every other move he'd made with me had been to farms and stalls that had housed horses before. The new wood and strange surroundings took some getting used to.

Lucky YOU! I've had the outside of my barn built since July! My stalls have yet to come it-they're being built. I've walked all my horses, including the colts (a yearling and two year old), and they just gooped and gawked, but otherwise took it in stride. You just gotta love that cowhorse blood! I doubt they'll be in by Christmas, but one can always cross their fingers, right? I do so love the tackroom (which isn't completely finished by the way)..we found cedar from a mill that was moving at a CHEAP price. It smells wonderful. Good Luck on the new barn!

Good luck with your barn, too! It's just great to have them home. We opted to finish the stalls now and the tackroom LATER, and have decided in the meantime to just leave the tackroom an open space with walls (does that make sense?) - I will post more on that later. Hang in there; it's worth the wait: took me over 6 years of waiting, but God is good!

great pix! Your barn is really cool. this is my dream too--your story gives me hope that I too will have my horses at home some day. Just have to talk the hubby into it!

I'm jealous too. I've never been able to have any of my horses on my own property, and now that I no longer ride I guess I never will. But I enjoy reading your blog as you and your critters started a whole new adventure!
