My quest to find barns in the great desert southwest! This is the barn of my childhood. My dad put the roof on it! It is a magnificent barn, still standing in Vista, CA!

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.

I've loved horses all my life but didn't get my first one until our kids left us with an empty nest! Now hubby and I have 4 horses, 1 dog, 3 cats, and 4 adorable grandchildren. Oh, and two wonderful, grown children! Hubby and I enjoy taking care of our rescue horses and traveling and taking photos.
