Barn Charm

 
I found this faded old barn about 20 minutes from my house.  There's really nothing special about the barn, but I really liked what was in the field next to it.

 
Lots of sheep!  They appear to be nice and warm in their winter coats.

 
We also saw this Alpaca, who stood at the fence and stared at me as I took his picture.

For more barns, visit Tricia at Bluff Area Daily.

Barn is great with this red worn out color. It has a beautiful texture.

And then I enjoyed so much a picture of sheep.

And I for the first time saw Alpaca. She was posing for you.

Every picture is so great!!!

That is a nice barn, and I love those sheep!

Wonderful faded hues of color---adds a touch of gentle pizazz to the barn.
Sheep are great; I enjoy seeing them on my drive to and from work.
The alpaca looks a bit chubby--it's almost like his hindend takes up more space than his back legs can handle!:>)

Great barn and animals! I don't think I have ever sheep with that much wool before!

Betsy Brock said...

I love how perfect all the lines of this barn are. It would be great for an artist to paint. The animals are such a bonus! I don't think the sheep will get cold this winter!

Yes, very wooly sheep and I noticed the Holstein calves in the background. : )

I'm thinking those sheep missed sheering season this year. :)
The faded red barn with its green roof is a perfect canvas for some Christmas decorating.
Wonderful finds Mari!

I like the weathered wood on this barn. Those sheep are ready for a cold winter.

Those sheep look like they will be very warm with all their wool.

I always enjoy your barns... They make me feel closer to Ohio. Love that one with the American flag a few posts back.

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving.

Those sheep are really wooly. We have few sheep in Texas. Afterall, there was a big range war between cattlemen and shepherds here in the 1800s and I guess the cattlemen won!

Such a sad looking "hole" in the barn above the door. But the sheep and alpaca put a smile on my face. :-)

It is a lovely old barn. I guess the sheep keep those woolly coats until spring. The alpaca looks very interested in you.
