Barn Nanny, LLC

First off, I want to thank you for taking the time to visit my site.


I have been around horses since I was very young and have ridden for most of my life.  I took a break due to a divorce, but easily slid back into the saddle after we purchased our farm in Lebanon, Maine 2 1/2 years ago.  We have two wonderful horses (see below for their individual stories), chickens, 2 cats and 3 dogs that we have rescued. 


I created Barn Nanny because as a horse owner with a small farm, I have experienced the need to have a back up.  When my husband broke his leg this past December, he was unable to provide the afternoon hay to my horses while I was at work.  Thankfully I was able to hire my wonderful neighbor to provide this assistance. 


The second instance was when a friend called me from an out of state horse show she was attending and asked if I would mind putting her horses in the barn since the show was running behind and they wouldn't get home until dark.


It created a moment of pause for me and figured that if I was experiencing these circumstances, I am sure other back yard owners are also.


Please let me know if you have any questions.


Thank you and Happy Riding!

Just a bit about our hooved Fur Babies

​Angel is our 14 yr old Morab mare that was a barrel racer in her past life before I purchased her May 2014.  She's a very sweet, intelligent girl that keeps me on my toes!  She has settled in quite nicely & I provide basic care & riding lessons with her.


We realized quickly that she wasn't terribly happy being by herself and I brought Beau home.


​Beau is a 14 yr old Percheron gelding that I purchased sight unseen off a Facebook rescue page.  This poor boy was put through 2 slaughter auctions and had a fast approaching timeline to go back to the slaughter lot.  His photo captured my heart and although it has been a challenging road with health and lameness issues, I wouldn't change a thing.  This boy is my jokester, is amazingly smart, sensitive and now that we have work through his trust issues, he is very sweet. 


I have learned so much from this pair!  It's been quite a journey!
