Thanks Dad

My dad was here visiting last weekend and decided to do a little carpentry work. Addison was skeptical and pretended to ignore him.

She couldn't ignore the new gate he put in, it created a new holding area for me that I can use separate the new moms from one another.

He also put installed guard rails in the berthing stall to prevent the little ones from slipping under the fence, I learned that the hard way last year.

The new gate tucks away nicely when it isn't needed, I love it!

Unlike Addison Gidget is very impressed.

The cattle panel between me and the rams was working but less than optimal.

My dad cut the cattle panel to fit and reinforced it with some treated wood. He told me that this should keep me safe!

This too is a temporary fix as when he returns he promised to put in stalls like he did for the girl sheep and the goats. He will reuse the cross beams in the girls barn to make two more gates, I love my Dad!

Oh, let's not forget the latches he installed on the Ram shed to keep both the top and bottom pieces of both dutch doors secure - he thought of everything.


  1. Good Job ... does he hire out? Guess CA is a little far away, oh well. Enjoy your new upgrades.

  2. How wonderful. Your dad sounds like a super special man, and isn't it awesome to have things in your barn easier and more workable.

  3. So beautiful! Lovely blog; I'm a new follower!
