Almost Too Big For The Barn

 

 It's not only a charming barn. . . .but a charming draft horse, too. . . .


He acted as if he was accustomed to having his photo snapped. . . .


He's almost too big for the barn. . . .


See what I mean?

Sometimes I feel this way in my own home, too. . . .
  
***************************************
This charming log barn is located at The Homeplace. . . .
 . . . .on the Tennessee part of Land Between The Lakes. . . .
 . . . .in northwest Tennessee. . . .
It's one of our favorite places to visit. . . .
especially in the Fall. . . . 

That's where you'll find us this weekend. . . .

What a great barn and draft horse. But I think it is a bit small for him.

Cute pictures! He does look a little large for the barn, hopefully he doesn't have to spend too much time in it.

Ahhhh....this brings back so many memories! I lived in East Tennessee for 13 years and grew accustomed to seeing these wonderful cantaliever (spelling??) barns.
This is so beautiful and oh, what a sweet horse.
