The barn is where the work is put into before traveling to a show. Nothing means family bonding like six people packed into a six passenger truck traveling to a destination hours away. The goal remains the same, winning. The animals change with each show, and not matter what, new memories are always made.
My favorite days are when my family meets in the barn. The animals are taken care of everyday, but the animals are the reasons my family comes together and works to accomplish the same goal. Dirty clothes, shower caps protecting our hair, radio blasting, the people I love surrounding me; that’s what my barn means to me.
