Sienna Farm

Saw something at Siena Farm today that I must have on my property at some point. This is what I love about Wild About Barns — getting to visit all these wonderful farms and get ideas for my next farm in Colorado. They have a walker and a round pen in one outbuilding – they put the motor for the walker on the ceiling of the roundpen – that way they can walk the horses on the perimeter and exercise a horse inside in the roundpen.  Great Idea! Siena Farm is an exquisite racing “boutique” farm in Paris, Kentucky where they raise the next generation of great race horses. The facility is so clean, I could sleep in the stalls easily. Plus, they have a new weapon in their arsenal all the way from Brazil. Check it out when Wild About Barns begins airing on RIDE TV in January 2015.

Ingrid “Works the Flag” at Flying C Bar Ranch

Last day on this shoot and the crew is growing weary. When I used to do 2-3 week long shoots back in my 30s, I was never tired.  But now that i’m in my 50s, I grow tired and sore by about the one week mark of shooting. Aging – isn’t it grand!!!! We put Ingrid on a couple of great cutting horses today at the Flying C Bar Ranch in Depew, OK.

Whitewater Falls Stock Farm

Emotional story today in the plains of Kansas. We visited the Whitewater Falls Stock Farm in Towanda, KS just outside of Wichita, KS. We met Duane and Amanda Busenitz and their 3 small children at the location that was once home to the largest Percheron Draft breeding operation in America. This young couple is going to restore the house and the barn to it’s former glory and that couldn’t make Dot Osburn any happier. 90 yr old Dot was married to the great-grandson of the Farm’s founder JW Robison.  Tears came to her eyes when she walked through the barn for the last time. A must see.

If you would like to get involved and help Duane and Amanda in their quest to restore the old barn please visit their fundraising page http://www.youcaring.com/other/help-restore-the-whitewater-falls-stock-farm-barn/244893

Double H Farm & Anne’s Night

Double H Farm is one of the most beautiful horse farms I have ever seen – rolling hills covered with lush grass, everything manicured perfectly and barns that were built to house Champion Grand Prix jumpers. But the real reason we are here tonight at Double H Farm is to pay tribute to Anne Heyman, a classically trained equestrienne and philanthropist who died in January 2013 after a jumping accident in Wellington, FL. More than 600 friends and family gathered to honor Anne and her efforts to help Rwanda children go to school. We’ll bring you this story at the end of January 2015 when Wild About Barns launches on RIDE TV.  www.ridetv.com

At home with Tony Hendra

We met a real character today — humorist/writer Tony Hendra. He was the founding editor of National Lampoon in the 80s and helped launch the careers of Christopher guest, Chevy Chase and John Belushi. According to Tony, for 30 years he wrote most of his best work in a cramped office in his old barn. It finally fell down and he wanted it rebuilt with the same barn wood from the old barn. Enter Michael and Adam to save the day.
