Dan's Barns #2

I am certainly not one to look a gift horse hubby in the mouth!  So, when Dan returned from Missouri with his generous offer of barn photos, I grabbed them with glee and mania!  My trip to Florida included no photos of barns, so I was getting desperate!  This little barn was apparently some kind of hay barn.  The bottom is where the tractor pulled in from the field. 

In this photo, you can see the racks where the hay was stored, and there are hinged doors on this side.

This is the other end of the same barn - kind of a strange one, and I wonder if there was a specific reason for the design.  Of course, this may be a completely normal kind of barn - what say you?


I am so very thankful that Dan provided me with enough photos for a few weeks!  Thanks, hon!  (P.S. Dan's pacemaker surgery was moved to today - Thank God!  Will try to keep caught up with my visits while I wait with him - as long as I can get internet!  Thanks to all for their well-wishes and prayers.  They are greatly appreciated and have helped make the anxiety of waiting easier.)

....hooray for the outpatient surgery today. I'm happy to hear this, the long wait is enough to keep anyone sleepless. Hope all goes well. Do keep us posted with updates.

The barns are superior. [around here there are no barns close by]

oh, big prayers for a successful surgery!

i'm wondering if those are corn cribs - they often have the slatted design for drying.

Brian King said...

An unusual and cool looking old barn! He did a very nice job with the photos!

I'm wondering, same as Tex, if it's a corn crib. Whatever it is, it's a cool old building.
Sending prayers that all goes well.

A very cool looking structure. I hope his surgery goes well, by the way.

I always like the open-ness to these hay barns. Reminds me of log structures. Nice shots.

Interesting storage shed for hay.Her it's quite dry so most hay is stored outside. We don't get a lot of snow so sometimes there's quite a bit of grazing in the winter.

Lopsided barns always look like they're going to fall over. They deffinately have a certain charm though.

Elaine said...

Lovely old barn! Your gift hubby did a wonderful job for you--such a sweetheart! Sending prayers for a successful surgery and quick recovery.

Great photos by Dan!

Fantabulous! I don't see barns like this very often at all & I'm thrilled that he found one like it... I love the layout & the overhang, very creative design! Great shots, but I love that 1st one... I just wish it was seeing days of hard work, hustle & bustle, again... I keep saying it, but I pray for that very thing... it's sad to see sooo many barns just sitting & rotting

Thank you for sharing! =)
