Buttoning up

Yesterday was a very busy day! Funny how after a dusting of snow, things get done....
Ken and I worked for most of the day doing a check and securing the electric fence in the ram area.  I wanted to make sure that while Ken is at hunting camp, the ram is exactly where I want him! It seems that every year when Ken goes to "Boys Camp", something happens....our ram Booger re-arranged the barn one year, complete with new ventilation, another year I had JUST welcomed our new llama and he was a bit of an escape artist. I ended up building Stalag 17 to keep him in until Ken got home.....Sam and I bonded that first week! Needless to say, I wanted to be ready this year....we'll see.

We also spent time cleaning part of the barn that we re-did into a better donkey stall for the winter. Olive and Gracie now have new digs that will be snuggly and warm during even the coldest of nights. Now to finish the re-design for the rest of the barn! You learn as you go just what works and what is a pain in the neck! Of course part of it is the aging process.....things that used to work just fine now are painful. Who said "getting old isn't for sissies"? They weren't kidding!
Good night Gracie.....
