My father came to visit and went right to work on the sheep shed. Here is the before picture.
The sheep liked their shed, but they had to jump up into the front door.
Here is the shed after my father was finished working on it. Notice the lattice skirt that will prevent lambs from wandering underneath the shelter. A latch was added to hold the dutch doors open, both are open in this picture so you can see right out the back.
“Can I come in?”
“We really want to see what you are doing in there!”
Here is a barrel that my father brought and cut so we could safely store supplies inside.
He attached the pretty custom handles that I picked up for exactly this purpose, aren’t they cute?
Before he went to work the inside was cold and empty. Notice how small little Gidget looks inside there.
The mineral trays were hanging by a thread, without changes it would be very hard in here come Spring when the lambs are to be born.
“Thanks Dad!” Look what he did. I now have three new birthing stalls and a reinforced hay loft.
Each stall has its own swinging gate and shiny new heavy duty latches to hold them open.
Notice the insulated waterproof siding that he put up all around the walls.
Once the loft was reinforced we took his truck and picked up 43 bales of hay to store up in the loft. We still have room for almost 100 more!
“When is he coming back to put in electricity and running water?”
