Almost wordless Wednesday

On my last full day in Europe, Carol and I visited Marbach Stud in Gomadingen. Marbach is Germany's oldest state-run stud, with a history that dates back over five hundred years. It is also a popular tourist attraction, but on that cold Tuesday in January, Carol and I had the place mostly to ourselves. We spent a couple hours wandering through the barns, looking at horses and taking pictures. In honor of December being barn month, I'm sharing some of those photos today. Enjoy!


  1. Truly lovely and inspiring. Thanks for sharing such a precious memory! May you return some day.

  2. Such beautiful photos...but I have questions...the huge brown barn with four levels...are all those levels to house horses...and if so, how do the horses get to the upper levels? Do the brooms sweep the middle barn isle? The brown truck, does the truck hold grooming tools and the yellow posters say what? The multiple barns...for peeps and horses...they are so tall and grand! I sure enjoyed these photos! Thanks!

    1. Unfortunately, I don't have much (anything) in the way of answers. There wasn't much in the way of signage, and none of it was in English. We went in all the barns that were open to the public. The multi-level brown barn wasn't one of those so I have no idea what it was like inside. I'd love to go back again someday with someone who speaks German.
