that make me happy 🙂
Such as a swinging, lockable gate at the back of the barn!!! There has been a hog panel back there for longer than I care to say. To shut it, I had to wedge it between the barn wall and a huge stump and hope the ewes didn’t push it open while I was putting hay in the feeders. As far as locking the sheep in the barn – well that is just laughable!!! I was so happy when this went up I felt like doing a happy dance.
Also, notice the nice footing?
This wasn’t such a small task, but oh so nice!
This is what the back of the barn looked like. With lambs due shortly I was having nightmares of going out and finding lambs stuck in the mud up to their bellies. So, I had a load of hog fuel delivered and spread it really thick behind the barn. I swear a few of the ewes smiled at me when I let them out of the barn 😉
We also set up the maternity ward! Now comes the waiting…
