No, it isn’t 7:30 am on Saturday morning – that’s when we normally get the Ag Report on TV. I just thought it sounded more professional than “news from the barn”. Ha! I took the very last 2 pumpkins to the barn this morning and Baby Moo came on a quick trot when I broke them open. I save quite a few pumpkins and dole them out to the goats and the chickens as winter wears on as a treat but this is the last of them.
We have two doors that we open each morning and close every night since part of the barn has heat. If you look closely you can see the rope and pulley that lifts the door which is then hooked on the left for the daytime hours. The flaps also keep the cold air out but allow the goats to go in and out.
And remember when my friends hauled this hay for me? They loaded it on the hay rack, unloaded it and stacked it here for me to use this winter. It’s the nicest hay I’ve ever had and I think about them every time I feed hay to my goats.
Here are those same gals who all bought identical sewing machines to leave in the shop so that when we sew together they don’t have to carry their machines. What will they sew first on their new machines?
