So we've been busy getting ready for winter as I'm sure all of you have. Below are just a few of the projects we've been working on and have finished. There are still plenty of jobs waiting in the wings but for now I'm just happy these are done.
We dug out an area to put the dumpster in and lined it with giant blocks and gravel underneath. So instead of having a very large dumpster with ramps that were hard to navigate with the wheelbarrow and having to toss the manure up with a pitchfork to the rear, this is better. Once the side is filled in (where the planters are) there will be a ramp to walk up and just dump the manure in over the top. Eventually, it will be planted with bushes.
Next we put down the flakes in the indoor to treat the footing. It keeps the dust down and gives it a good consistency. Almost like beach sand.
We're not going over this stone wall anytime soon though
Or this gate either, that's for Hanz and my daughter, Rosie just isn't ready yet
We took down one stall wall so Grady could have a double stall. He wasn't lying down at night and since he's getting older and he's so huge, we thought this would help him with his arthritis and other ailments. So now he's got the Presidential Suite in the barn.
" Gracie" was exhausted and needed to take a nap in the sun after watching all this activity going on for days. She was giving me the 'stink eye' so I didn't disturb her and decided to unload the hay after lunch!
