A Florida Barn and an Updated Barn

I live in the ‘Horse Capital of the World’ and yes, it’s right here in North Central Florida.

We have so many huge horse farms and big beautiful barns. I know it’s not what some picture as Florida!

And here’s an update on the tiny barn in the mountains of Western NC.

My step daughter was sweet enough to photograph it for me with the Christmas wreaths. It’s near her house and she drives by it every day! Thanks D!!!

I played with the photos on Picmonkey and had some fun (and added some snow)!

I love that tiny little barn - it may not be tiny, but it looks tiny and sweet. Love the last picture - where it has a touch of color and some snow.

Wowzer! That's beautiful, Diane! It could become your Christmas card some year. I didn't know that you lived in the horse capital of the country. Very interesting...

Horse capital of the World? We in Kentucky say Neeiigghhh! Actually, we've been losing ground on that area for a while now. I DO love horse farms in the winter here, though. That tiny barn is darling.

I love that barn, and you added snow...well looking out my window right now, I don't need any programs to add snow...

It's coming down fast.

Yours looks great,

Hmmmmm, as I live in Lexington. Kentucky, I might have to dispute that horse capital of the country :)

I adore that little barn and what fun to add the snow.

Oh, I love, love, love those sweet barn photos! What a gorgeous setting! And yes, I knew that there were lots of wonderful horse farms there in FL. One of my blogging friends ( see "from my porch in the mountains") used to work at such a farm, caring for the animals!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Beautiful little barn, love the wreath on it! I didn't know that FL was the horse capital of the world, I would have guessed it was somewhere in KY or TN.

Tricia Hays said...

Look at that long horse barn in the 1st pic! And there's horses in the shot, too... love the white fencing & that sky is so beautiful!
