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 shedThis project was begun on November 8th, 2004
This is the
site where the new shed will be sitting
The Frame being
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.
are put on the frame
the metal out for strength

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.

out the first row of roof rafters.
row of roof rafters are started...the roof should be completed by tomorrow..November
11th, 2004...more photos will be posted.
Despite bad weather the roof is added on 11/12/04!!
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
Front wall to be added with kickboards, metal hung all around..removeable vinyl strips hung in the door for warmth in the cold winter months, then the quarterdown will be spread to prevent mud...and finally donkeys will be added!
11/18/2004...had to stop work to have 6 donkeys ready to go to their new homes but today we added the front kickboards!!
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!!
