This is a well-stocked barn-door, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Ray! smile
The horse whisperer knows that the back of a door is the perfect place to hang bit and pieces, Ginnie, and you definitely know the best way to capture and present it.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Beverly. Jackie knows exactly what she's doing...and with what!
Nice composition and tones.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Jacquelyn.

It looks like the person who works in this farm really takes their work seriously.
Ginnie Hart: You have no idea, Rags! She was born into it and so lives and breathes it!
You have captured her great tack shop perfectly Ginnie... i takes a lot of bits and pieces to work with horses... i like the saddles in the shadows just inside the door....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Peter. Jackie definitely knows what she's doing and the horses trust her.

Timeless, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Lisl. Thanks.
I love it !
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Marie. Merci!
A place which I like particularly to be a rider for a long time, I already feel the smell of the leather and the dust! A very suggestive and bright image...
Ginnie Hart: You'd love it on this farm, Mathilde. It's very relaxing and homey! Merci.

Yikes - the holy of holies!
Ginnie Hart: Seriously, Chris? WOW. I guess I'm lucky to have seen it, let alone capture it!

smile LOL at Chris. I think this is a case off 'Touch and you are dead'.
Love the way this is organized. A wonderful still life, love the colours.
Ginnie Hart: You may be right, MLMA. In that case, I'm glad I just took the picture and did nothing more. smile Hartstikke bedankt.
Is this what they call a tack room? I am a cat whisperer. I whisper to my cats and they take no notice and please themselves....it is the same if I shout
Ginnie Hart: LOL, Bill, at your cat whispering. I can just see you. grin And yes, I think that's Jackie's tack door!

A warm, well sunlit still-life -this might be Jackie's world and life!
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Philine. Chris says it's her Holy of Holies...which is really saying something!

I have not heard that term for some time Ginnie. Horse sense. I don't know what it means bu I like it.
Ginnie Hart: Now that you mention it, Chad, I looked it up to get the definition:

Noun 1. horse sense - sound practical judgment; "Common sense is not so common"; "he hasn't got the sense God gave little green apples"; "fortunately she had the good sense to run away"

I grew up hearing about horse sense. You just know when someone has it. HA!

Look at all those ropes - bridles and bits and what not??? Gorgeous light in this!
Ginnie Hart: And to think someone knows what they all mean! smile Thanks, Marcie.

A wonderful composition Ginnie with beautiful light and tones. Beautifully captured and presented.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Laurette.

Every piece of rope has a purpose, I'm sure. Good to see proper tiles on the roof, too, rather than sheeting.
Ginnie Hart: A purpose and a place for everything, Alan, for sure! Thanks.

Organized 'chaos' with the long length of tangled and twisted ropes. Love the fallen feed sacks on the ground.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Sue. Her husband says it's her Holy of Holies. smile

A modern flat styled cupboard. In its previous life it probably was a door. Horsey people refer to this kind of place as the tack room.

Are you teaching Chad english? smile
Ginnie Hart: I'm quite sure it's Jackie's tack room, Louis. And as for teaching Chad English? Someone's gotta do it. grin
What I like about this sort of thing is the fact that I personally don't have any idea what any of the stuff is for, but it does make for a good photo.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I know exactly what you mean, Brian. Thanks for the smile. smile
This is straight from 'the horses mouth' I think Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! Indeed, Richard. LOL.
I can just feel the dust!
Ginnie Hart: HA! I never even once thought ofd that, Robin. smile
Very clever title for this beautiful shot.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. smile
A very nicely arranged barn door Ginnie. The light is superb!
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Richard. I have grown to love this farm!
Well I'm well impressed by all that tackle, I know Bath is west, but this looks like the wild west smile Makes a nice shot.
Ginnie Hart: HA! The Wild West. I like that, John. grin Thanks.

It like your treatment it makes it look oldie worldy.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Cherry. smile
Nicely composed tackle, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. smile
Ha ha... not your ordinary horse whisperer!
She's Wonder Woman.
Those are her lassoes!

Oh yes, I am going to Italy for a holiday.
I see you next week.
Enjoy your summer.
Ginnie Hart: No ordinary horse whisperer, indeed, LC. I can vouch for that!

Enjoy Italy and tell us all about it!
this is a great view of this barn door. you have given the impression of what curious and interesting things could be inside
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ayush. Next time I'm there I may just have to peek inside. grin
I love this! Been staring at it for 5 minutes straight trying to make out the stuff hanging from the door and trying to see what's inside grin
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Abby. Next time I promise to peek inside! grin
You have such a terrific eye for composition Ginnie, and your treatment is always just perfection!
Ginnie Hart: You're way too generous, Elizabeth, but I thank you anyway! smile
sniff,ça me fait penser à ma jument que nous sommes obligés de nous séparer mais on va la vendre à une association d'handicap,style thérapie équine
Ginnie Hart: Awww. Sad day for you, l'Angevine, I'm sure. But at least you're able to do something good for everyone involved. Merci.
Beautiful climatic photograph. I am greeting
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Zielona. Dziękujemy.
I don't know about the Horse Whisperer but that doorway just cries out for a figure in there. Nice shot Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Les, you're right. But she had already come and gone by the time I got there! smile

organized chaos, for one it might seem like a mess but for it's owner, it's arranged as it should be.. ;D nice catch!
Ginnie Hart: Exactly what I thought, Rian. Thanks.
What a beautiful photo Ginnie. You have captured something that is mundane and turning it into a work of art!
Ginnie Hart: You're very sweet, Charles. Thank you kindly.
