Sunday stills: silo's and water towers

I would have had this up in the morning but I didn't take the pictures until this afternoon. See I have been busy, busy, busy, I don't think I could stress the word busy any more.

So here it is, the silo's.

They tower over the farm. I love this picture. The silos look like they are sooooo tall. They really are. I used to climb all the way to the top of the right one, which is significantly taller than the other.

Here's the inside view of the smaller one. They haven't had anything in them for about 5 years now. The smaller had haylage and the taller one always had corn silage. Now they are pigeon roosts.

The bigger one with one of our resident flying rats in it (FYI: flying rats are pigeons, not actual flying rats lol!). He is just off the right of the chute there where the light is coming from. Boy he looks tiny. Hes not, hes fat and well fed. Who the hell keeps feeding these things!?

Of course one with the horses in front of it. You can see Indigo on the other side of the fence eating grass. Shes the only one I can trust to do that and not take off the second the lead rope drops. She just hangs out mowing down on the greenage.

The old wooden Silo foundation with Sheba and Indigo modeling it.
Thats all for today folks. Stay tuned all you horsey people, theres a pretty cool contest coming up with some awesome prizes.

Wow, I'm impressed you have your very own silos! The first pic has a really neat perspective and interesting clouds. It makes me feel like I am flying, only I wouldn't want to fly with the rodents!

Very big silo that is! I don't see silos around here that often, didn't realize how big they can be!

Nice silos. There is a parculiar beauty about them, but then again you killed it with the flying rat story!! :)

Great photos. I like the inside perspective. I've never seen inside one before now. Cool!

I know all about busy, too. Whewee!
I'm sleep deprived from camping out in a tent in a barn for a week waiting for a foal to be born.....but she's finally here! Yay!
