The Livestock barn passed muster today! So no sooner did that happen, the guys were out laying out the lean to. I set to work flattening the dirt floor with my tractor and then brought in the gates to verify that I had the spacing correct (and I was dying to actually see if it matched what I had in my head). I also got to assemble the new goat hay feeders and was very pleased to see how stout they are. It’s funny, I get such a clear picture in my mind about how something should come together, that when it actually shows up out onto the earth, it’s not a big deal. My thought is usually, “Yep, that’s it!”
Tomorrow I will be unloading 25 sheets of plywood and start the process of putting them on the walls. Between the insulated ceiling, hay stacked 6 high against the back wall, and boards to create airspace on the sides, it ought to be a rather comfortable critter hotel.
I’ll be in Vegas next week for the World Archery Championships. When I get back, we should be all set to bring in the hoofed creatures. Oh ya, I heard back from my solar guru and the battery company actually came through. They are giving us a big discount on the battery replacements and it will cost about half of what I expected! It’s nice to catch a break from time to time!

Loads of room for stanchions and hay storage
