Turn Out Shed Three

 

Below are photos of the third turn out shed we have ordered from Klene Pipe. This is the last pasture to add a large turn out shed too as it use to have two of the calf huts you see in some of the photos the calf hut will be removed when this shed is completed and it will be moved to the pasture with the smallest turn out shed

This project was begun on November 8th, 2004

This is the site where the new shed will be sitting

Primero looks on...this hay rack has a place to add a roof so that we don't have to cover with tarps. We will add the roof soon. That hayrack is my favorite hay rack of all ... the donkeys hardly spill any hay at all out of it.

Indy...just gelded jack lies quietly with his new buddy, Circle C Radar. Soggy Bottom Boy is standing at the gate. This pasture is across the isleway and is where we keep all of our geldings.

Primero says that building things makes him awfully tired...Oprah is doing what she does best..eating and that is Calamity to the right. Both girls appear to be safe in foal to Primero for a late 2005 foal.

November 13th, 2004 - Side Rails added to nail metal and kickboards to...this doesn't seem like a lot to do for one day but each board had to be cut to fit and each bolt hole had to be drilled and counter sunk so that it doesn't interfere with the metal or kickboards.

Kickboards added 11/14/04 to three of the walls

Nothing left to do now but add the metal siding and the vinyl door strips...then spread the quarterdown around the outside and it will be finished!

We have had tons of rain around here but this is what was done on 11/20/2004...nothing left to do now but add the trimming on the edges and the vinyl strips to the door for protection from the drafts and spread the quarterdown around the outside!

As always..improvements to be continued!!
