This the entrance gate to Airdrie Stud Farm on Old Frankfort Pike near Midway, Kentucky. It's where a lucky few thoroughbreds get re-assigned to after they are retired from racing. Since most of us probably have limited time this week for blogging, and since Airdrie has good barns, fences, and water, I'm making this post my entry for Barn Charm and Watery Wednesday II at Bluff Area Daily and Friday Fences at Life According to Jan and Jer . Hopefully, this will give more time to visit you all.

A stream runs through it and examples of classic horse fencing and dry stone walls:

If this is the last time we chat before Christmas, a merry one to you and yours from Chet and me. He's already dreaming of a deer antler treat!
