Another set of barns in the extended Run*A*Round zone.

The property's on a natural slope.  Luckily, I ran the photos through 'straighten horizon' or you'd have accused me of being tipsy...

Linking to Tricia's Barn Charm.

Three red barns on one property must be a first in this area. I think there are more red barns in your area than mine, which isn't that far down the road. Hoping you have a wonderful week. Loving these cooler temps!

thesedaysofmine.com said...

I have to use that straighten feature sometimes too!
Great photos! And this week: I'm going to join Barn Charm too!

Ellie said...

Love that large sloped roof.

Joe said...

Wish I could send some of the rain we're getting to green up that grass some.

Jill said...

Those are great barns but I think the fence really makes this a great photo!

Hound Girl said...

Ha. im too lazy to ever straight'n my photos, sigh. I need to work on that :)

I love the red barns. im old school what can I say!

bj said...

What is it about barns that we all love so much? These are beautiful.

Woody said...

Three distinctly different styles of barn on the same farm, I guess they meet different needs.

It looks like a beautiful farm.

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

beautiful barns... sometimes I have to 'straighten' photos that have no reason other than my sideways shooting. lol!! have a great day! blessings ~ tanna

Allison said...

Yay! A big look at the place! But where is your house, Theresa? Behind the AT barn?

georgettesullins said...

These reds are so beautiful against the brown of the pastures. I love the initials on the last photo, as distinctive as the reds.

Roan said...

Mine always sag right, often causing me to use the straighten feature. I'm thinking I surely have one leg shorter than the other. Maybe I should be making better use of my tripod, but so many of my shots are drive-bys. Love the red barns against the dry grass.

Madge said...

Good shot of a working farmstead... and naw, we wouldn't have thought a thing about the slope... wink!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Wow. That is one nice barn set up. Even tipsy.

Jan n Jer said...

I like the slope of the one roof and the initials too! Wow just look at that dry grass...I would gladly send you some of our rain if I could...we have had 3 times the amount of rainfall in Sept. as we usually get for the entire year!!!! You can watch the grass grow!!!!

Louise said...

What straighten feature? Where? Wish I had that, sometimes.

The barns are beautiful, That one on the right almost looks like it could contain an indoor arena.

Sandra said...

I enlarged the photos twice and there is an incredible amount of detail in these, horses and hay bails, 3 barns in a row and all behind a fence. beautiful

Farmchick said...

I always like the touch of red from a barn that is sitting out in a field.

Buttons said...

Tipsy you? Can't imagine that. I love the barn buildings. B

bailey-road.com said...

Nice little spread!

Bruce Clark said...

These shots will make a great addition to this week's Barn Charm.

Flora said...

Love the 3 barn setting!

Chatty Crone said...

Boy the one of the right has a huge roof! Love it. sandie

OceanoAzul.Sonhos said...

I like barns, your photos are magnificent!!

stardust said...

Even when the land is flat, my picture image can get crooked sometimes. The red barns would make good color contrast with the surrounding colors in any season. Each form of roof is lovely.

heyBJK said...

Nice barns! I wonder what the "AT" stands for? It looks like the fencing around the barns is red, too.

Debbie said...

oooohhh t, i need to learn how to straighten the horizon, i have lot's of tipsy shots!!

i am having the same issue with leaving comments, i have seveal blogs i can't comment on!!

now, on to those gorgeous pictures. um...perfection, with a fence!!

Debbie said...

* several....i can spell!!!

Peggy said...

I am drooling over the barn and out buildings! Would love to have those here on the farm. I would even love to live in a barn. LOL

eileeninmd said...

I have to agree with what BJ said, "What is it about barns that we all love so much?" I love the barns too, especially the red ones. Great photos!

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

I took off on this trip with great plans to come home with a folder full of old barn photos for Barn Charm, but it didn't pan out. Some were so far away, but most there was just no place for the Little House on the Highway to pull off safely. We did score a few though. I'm sure I saw this one. How did I end up in Texas? Must have took a wrong turn at Albuquerque (Bugs Bunny).

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Theresa, Great barn pictures today...

How are things in your area? Did you get 'enough' rain to help????

Hugs,
Betsy

Pricilla said...

I'll bet a lot of goats could fit in there!

Farm Girl said...

It looks nice. You can leave comments on mine right, well you did since I last wrote a post. Has something changed? I will be updating soon, just down with a cold and my brain doesn't work. :)

Furry Bottoms said...

Speaking of barns!!! I was out this weekend in the farm country behind my neighborhood. There are lots of barns out there, and I had a question. Why do they make some barns so sky high? It's not like they're using the air space all the way up there. There were a couple of barns that looked like it was from another country, and it seemed like a mile high or nearabouts. Any idea why?

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

Love barns! That is a beautiful farm with all the red buildings. I assume they below to the same person?

Mom of M&Ms said...

well ya do have that margarita recipe......

Sylvia K said...

I do love those red barns! Great shots! I, too, wish I could send you some of our rain to "green up" those pastures! Hope you have a great day, Theresa! Enjoy!

Sylvia

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

those red barns are so pretty!
i love barns for some reason!
betty xx

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

have a great week ahead and i hope you get some so desirable rain!

wayside wanderer said...

Double barnage! Love that red!

Gillian Olson said...

Love those barns. I often have to straighten horizons but not because the land is slopped.

Raindrops and Daisies said...

Love the barns
but especially love those blue skies!

Lucky lucky you!

x Fiona froma wet and miserable Ireland!

Pam said...

Beautiful barn scenes, Theresa.
If you took all the offers to sent you rain.. the grass would definitively turn green.
hugs,
Pam

KAT said...

wonderful photos ...I could stare at barns all day...really !
- KAT -

joo said...

Are they barns? Wow, very pretty and completely different than ours:)

Janie said...

Any person would be tipsy after a day on your property! All that you do, and see. We don't expect you to hold that camera steady all the time. What great land!

Karen said...

More beautiful views!
I am glad you put up the message about the comment problem. I am having the same problem. There are so many blogs I would like to comment on and can't.

Linda R. said...

Such a great set of barn photos..

Hugs, Linda

Robin said...

T, very pretty, but awful dry looking!

pattisjarrett said...

Love these "barnscapes."

Andrew said...

A lovely landscape...and theres that fence again..
So consistant well done :) xx

Annette said...

Red barns...sigh...always my favorite.

barbara l. hale said...

Good looking spread there.

laurak@forestwalkart said...

i never heard of such a feature...sure could have made use of it at times...

nice shot...looks like a painting...

Dawn said...

Haha...I know what you mean about the slope thing. I was all tilted when I was out on the water in my kayak:D
Nice barn shots.
I'm hoping to try to do that Barn Link thing today too...hope I can figure it out;D

(GBS) NewsFromTheHill said...

Kind of reminds me of the Appalachian Trail logo! Love those red barns!

Bob Bushell said...

Nice barns again.

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Very nice colors. Loving those golden fields. Although I know that's a result of the drought which is not good. Hope you have a great week!

Samantha said...

Love this property! They are lucky souls..it's gorgeous.

I dunno, Tee, you posted a margarita recipe...hmmm...stop blaming the landscape! LOL

littlethingsoflife said...

Always enjoy your barn photos, even if they AREN'T as spectacular as the ones you remember from Wisconsin. ;)

I had to post a sunset scene that was a little tipsy. LOL! I tried leveling it out with a crop, but it cut out too much of the sunset sky...so I just left it slanted!

Candy C. said...

What a pretty set of barns!

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

Love the initials on the one barn -- I assume that's the name of the ranch. :)

Carole Meisenhelter said...

..interesting to see more of your countryside; the barns are lovely.

The Wife of a Dairyman said...

Red barns are definitely my favorite! SO much charm:)

Chip "Rocket Man" Allen said...

I know the straighten horizon trick very well. Ain't a flat piece of ground within 50 miles of us and most of my shots are tipsy straight off the SD card!

EG Wow said...

Boy! You sure can tell by the slope of the roof on the barn on the right that you don't get much snow! :))

Ruta said...

I might need to straighten out some of my pics now that I think of it.
I do love red barns!

Deb said...

great post...

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

There's just something so tranquil about these pictures with the clear sky in the background...

Michaele said...

Love the three different barns. I don't think I would put up my initials. MO just doesn't get it.

Kerri said...

Lovely!

Tim said...

Beautiful farm photos - makes me reminisce.

Gone Country said...

I've noticed that I have a tendency to tilt my camera when taking a shot and I'm not tipsy!

That's a bunch of barns!

Angela said...

Those are some very big beautiful barns! Beautiful land too!

Rose said...

Great entry, Theresa...love the barns but love the whole scene!

You know I hate those embedded comment forms, too...

edenhills said...

Love the barns. Funny that we have to straighten horizons and edit the real world.

Teresa

Rural Revival said...

Now that's a nice view!

Virginia said...

Lovely countryside. BTW, every shot I take needs that great "straighten" tool. I must be cockeyed!
Love your blog.

Tiffany said...

I need a red barn for my Christmas pictures...can I come visit:)

Barbara Shallue said...

I love barns! These are great!

Lisa RedWillow said...

I love the old red barns. We dont have many around here . They are all white. Beautiful to see and a pleasure to view.

Paula said...

Not many barns down here. Even the hay sits out or just has a cover with no sides. Difference in the weather, I guess.

Kelly said...

...nothing prettier than red barns in a field. You're lucky to live there. I'd love to be able to see such a scene on a regular basis.

Montanagirl said...

Love these - and the fences too!

Daniel said...

Some folks have a love affair with certain subjects.

Barns represent our heritage, the settlers and pioneers.

I'm not familiar as to why the colour Red was so popular. But I did find some anecdotal information that may or may not hold the answer to this mystery.

Lovely photos as always and an interesting thread too!

SquirrelQueen said...

I love this, three barns for the price of one. That looks like a really interesting ranch.

With all the little slopes around here a straighten horizon feature would be most useful.

missing moments said...

I need that program that straightens out my horizons! I'm always tilting them! Great shots.

Paula said...

Ooooh~ the one in the middle with the tall roof is so pretty!

Judy said...

I love the one on the right...and EG is right you can tell by that roof that you don't get snow much.

Tricia said...

Looks like a nice farm... love the horses... and the fence in front of it =)

Barb said...

Those are fabulous barns and the red against the golden grasses is beautiful. It would be interesting to see the sloped photo . . .

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Beautiful farm! And Barn.

Could I borrow your message about not being able to leave comments? I don't have a hundred million followers like you do, but some of them are using that kind of form and I didn't even know how to tell them it wasn't working. I've sent e-mails to a few of my favorite people and two of them actually changed it to the right kind.

MarieElizabeth said...

Beautiful barns, and straight too. :)

Elisabete said...

It´s a pleasure to see!

Carole said...

What a great spread, and lovely barns!
