I’ve posted many times about visiting and trail riding the Milky Way Farm (Pulaski, TN) but why is it so special to me? For a time, long ago, I lived and worked on a part of the original farm. Although it feels like a world away now my experiences there helped to shape me. I thought to enjoy sharing with you some of my personal photographs of one of the most amazing times of my life.
The main barn of the farm where I worked way back in 1987. Two years later it was destroyed by a fire only to be rebuilt. It was once the Thoroughbred Show Barn of the original Milky Way Farm.
The main barn of the farm where I worked in 1989 shortly before the fire.
The lower barn of the farm where I worked as pictured in 1989. I believe that it was originally one of the barns the Milky Way Farm built on its feed lots for the Hereford cattle they owned.
