|This driveway, but it was dark and the grass is dead!|
Once we got up to the barn I put her in her stall and she was very pleased to be there because there was hay and she was out of the wind. I didn't give her any grain - colic risk after that long trip - but she got some hay pellets so she'd feel like she got something. This seemed to satisfy her, and she'll get her normal dinner tonight.

sheet aren't mine, but the black trunk is.
After she was settled in, I left her to sleep. It was still quite dark out and I figured all the horses would be snoozing. But I couldn't contain myself for long, and I was back at 9am. I thought the dressage pro would be there, but I was alone the whole time. She was definitely sleeping when I got there, and I felt a little bad for waking her up. But I don't think she minded, especially because we snuggled for a very long time. Then I took her out and brushed her, and she was great. We went on a short walk around, and she got to look at some stuff, but we'll do more exploring later. Didn't venture into the indoor, but there's time for that. Today I just want her to rest and recover from the trip. I saw her drink water out of her bucket, and I hung another one with Horse Quencher in it too. Gotta order more of that stuff.
You can also see that I went ahead and made a stall sign like Lauren did, but waited to hang it until we got here.
While I had the paint out, I also painted these brushes.
Anyway, after grooming Lex I went to the tack room and put my stuff away. It's not the neatest tack room in the world, I guess, but it's a Pony Club/lesson barn. This looks about right to me.
There are two riding spaces here.

|Nice, if small, indoor!|
I've only been here a day, so I'm not sure what my favorite feature is yet. I guess I'll go with the fact that this dork lives there.
