There Was a Story

Do you remember the story about the shoe maker’s work being done by beings that snuck into his house in the night? We have something like that going on in our barn. Only it’s not elves or gnomes, but Ray and a great friend.

If you look very closely, you can see work being done well after dark. This is so exciting!

Construction continues

Neither rain, nor flood, nor cold weather can stop barn contruction this year. We’re out of room, almost out of time, and definately out of excuses!

As you can see, we had a bright and sunny day. The holes have been in the barn long enough to fill with rainwater from the very long storm we had. We want to get the goats in by the end of the year, so Ray’s doing his best to get the stalls up and ready for our newest animals. The goats will be only after the chickens in our sustainability attempts.

Yawn
