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.
