That's a great answer, so interesting, the old and the new, I would have left an answer but I just didn't know and now I do. Good on you
Sounds plausible. It still seems to be fairly common in Scotland. Another possible reason is that red makes it easy to see the barn from a distance and so get your bearings. I also note a lot of tractors are also painted red.
How interesting. My barn is green but then I've never been much of a conformist. That seems to have been an excellent answer at the first hit and I have nothing to add except that I found the question interesting as a person with a barn.
How stuff works Info.? LOL
Yeah, this is correct. I was going to write an answer like this but you hit it on the head of the nail.
@JThomp haha YES, but a summarized version. With my own input.
