Vista ranch and fences~Friday Fences~030212

Whenever we are in the area, I make a point to drive by the red barn of my childhood.  At least it was mine on the weekends.  My parents bought this ranch as an investment and we never had any horses there, but we did spend weekends camping out in the ranch house and I spent weekends exploring the two barns on the property.  The old white barn is long gone, but the beautiful red barn is still there, as magnificent as ever.  The new owners have done a lot to improve the property, including adding a mare motel and lots of training equipment.  I stopped by there one time and met the owner and she took me on a tour.  I never grow tired of seeing this ranch and my mother enjoying driving by it, too.  Friday Fences for March 2, 2012.  To visit Friday Fences, please amble over to:

Red barn, Bonsall, CA~Barn Charm~022812

Hubby and I drove up the Old Mission Road in Bonsall, which is near Fallbrook, CA.  This is wonderful horse country.  This is the ranch my parents owned back in the 1960's and my father actually put the metal roof on it.  I'm glad to see the roof is still there and holding up well.  This is one of the most beautiful barns in Southern California (in my humble opinion)...It is big and roomy and I love the exterior!  Barn Charm for February 28, 2012.  To visit Barn Charm, go to this link:

Luxury barn, Western Sierras~Barn Charm~January 31, 2012

We found this beautifully kept barn on the road while up in the western Sierras last June.  I was going through my archived photos on hubby's laptop since this one is going kaput and I rarely have Internet access on it anymore.  I found a few barn photos that I'll be posting in the next few weeks, so this blog will be up and running again!  Barn Charm for January 31, 2012.  To visit Barn Charm, please follow this link:
