Barn Charm - Nice Digs if You're a Horse



Thought I'd stick a bit closer to home for this week's Barn Charm. This fine horse barn is only about 20 minutes outside of Louisville, Kentucky. I had to shoot from the highway so not the greatest photo, but enough for you to see that some pretty lucky horses live here. Here's another view of the place with some classic horse farm fencing:

 

And this is the rather grand entrance to the house and barn. Beautifully landscaped and very good example our stone wall work:

 

Now if you'd like to participate in the Barn Charm meme, or just see some interesting "barnery" from many different places, just go to Bluff Area Daily .

Yes, a typical high-dollar Kentucky horse farm! :-) I'm not sure our horses realize how good they have it at some places. Gorgeous barn for sure!
