Barn Collective










All three of the above barns/farms are near my sister's home where we visited on Friday.  They have all housed horses over the years that I can recall and perhaps a few beef cows.  The third barn still houses work horses.  The horses were most likely used in the woods to haul logs out as these aren't large farms and the whole area is built into a very rocky hill that rises up from the river's interval.  The horses might have been used in haying on the interval in summer.  These barns are all well kept.  

I'm joining Amy at "Rose Street Reflections" for The Barn Collective #13.

Blessings,
Pamela

  1. The farm in the third photo wonderful. A car going down that hill could end up in the barn of the road was icy. What is the river's interval mean? Tom The Backroads Traveller

  2. They are all wonderful barns, I like the third one best of all I think. They look so totally right to me for how I imagine your part of the world to be! xx

    Best greetings, Johanna

  8. These barns certainly do look in good shape. I thought the same as Theresa- that curve could be a problem for drivers!

  9. I love barns! It's become a family thing :)
    My daughter is doing her PhD thesis on barns and farmsteads in our area.
    Lovely photos as usual, so nice to record them, and to see them so well kept.

  16. I agree with Donna, Wonderful. there is something esp. nostalgic about old barns!

  17. I also enjoy seeing barns, especially ones very worn. I have taken a few photos of barns, but many are on roads where I have no place to pull over. Eventually!! I am in hopes to get a few more clouds crawling across the trees!

  21. Barns and snow go together so well. That's a steep curving road - I wonder if anyone has ever slid into the barn? Gorgeous photos, Pamela.

  22. It's always such a treat to see pictures of barns, especially yours, Pam, and especially when there is snow on the ground..Happy Tuesday..Judy

  23. I just love that first pic Pamela, the type of farm I would love to have perhaps………….in summertime!!!!
    That's certainly a lot of snow - but of course I realize it's expected up your way and people are prepared for winter conditions such as these. I didn't really enjoy the snow after the first fall when living in New England, but I got used to it. Now, no way could I manage the roads and the cold - my blood has thinned after almost 38 years down south!

    Stay warm and cozy, be careful driving, and keep the lip balm handy!
    Love and hugs - Mary
