This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This set was inspired by my parents farm. Almost all textures were taken from my mom's actual barn and pasture. The manure pile is really her horses' manure pile, for instance (which has flies buzzing around it! Mom suggested that)

I have also sized and scaled everything to match Dragon Slave's horses found here:
so if you have those horses, these items should work perfectly in terms of scale and size.

I made everything to be NL compatible (probably base game too) just because I know most people have at least that EP.

The set currently has:

Salt block in holder
Horse feedbag
Grain bin
Two muck picks (one hanging, one leaning)
Small pylon for training
Manure pile with FLIES!
Jumping fence
Muck bucket single
Muck buckets stacked
Horseshoes for decoration
Hitching post with blanket. Several recolors of the blanket, including an invisible one
Water pump with Sims rinsing their hands and maxing out hygiene
Shavings terrain paint
Collection file-but no terrain paint in that

If you want the hitching post "plain" with no blanket draped over it, use the invisible blanket recolor in design mode or when buying it.

Polygon Counts:
Bridle/Halter 852
Rope 2350
Watertrough 1940
Salt block in holder 448
Horse feedbag 1126
Grain bin 308
Two muck picks (hanging 884, leaning 844)
Small pylon 270
Manure pile with FLIES! 782
Jumping fence 324
Muck bucket single 758
Muck buckets stacked 2254
Horseshoes for decoration 744
Water pump 644
Hitching post 964

Your barn set looks great.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.

I'm speechless.
I've been grumbling and groaning for the last month or more, searching for things like the water trough, and the hitching post. It's like you peeked into my mind and saw exactly what I've been looking for (and cursing myself for not knowing how to make!) and waved your magic wand, because here it all is! I can't believe how perfect everything is!
I'm stunned.
Thank you so much!!!

Oh...this will go great with the horse I'm currently working on. Maybe I won't have to make a tack set after all

I just downloaded Dragon Slave's new horses-not Ginger and Lucy, the new ones that look AMAZING!

Well, I was looking for some good barn stuff I can use, and I found your amazing set! You and Dragon Slave should team up!!!! You are both fabulous creators!
Thanks for putting up this download.......I like how you used real textures! Great job! Keep it up!

I am in need of zelda downloads-do you have any? If so, contact me immediately and give me a link to it.
I also have a Sims 2 Website-feel free to take a look.
