We have some termites working on our old barn, equine termites, with large teeth!!! Every fence post, every building that they can reach has chew marks on them. Even the neat garden gate I made has been chewed, bad boys!!
I was taking pictures as I was waiting for Kim to come up the road to get me, she was going to the little grocery/diner to get water at the water station. Kim's well has been low on water all summer, so she has a water tank that fits in the back of the truck to carry water. Of course when we were up there we had to have lunch! LOL
(I know someone is going to ask, "What'd you have to eat?" I had a stacker, a slice of French bread, a slice of meatloaf, mashed potatoes and gravy. YUM They also have chicken and roast beef. All really good home cooking. I will have to take pictures for another post. This little place is only 8 miles from home.)
The chain that holds the gate closed. I love the look of the weathered old barn, the rusty chain adds some color to the picture.
Six of the boards on this side of the barn Mike and I replaced. They were old too be not as worn out as the ones that were on there. This is the funny part, the old boards had a horse head on it too. Look closely at the fifth board from the left, can you see the horse, or maybe it's a donkey?
I cropped and enlarged it for you to see closer. Can you see his sleepy eye, nose, mouth and ears tipped back? He has kind of a Roman nose too.
This old barn has a lot of character!!! And there are a couple of characters that live in it too!
