|Sheep barn doors are done, and yes they are barn quality with room for sag and shifting.|
We sorted and tagged the last set of twins. Jonathon wrote down all the tag numbers as our spread sheet is a little outdated. After all the mommas and babies were documented we ran in the boys. The first one we sorted out was the ram. We tossed him into the middle of the barn to run around until we had everyone else sorted. Jonathan was sure the ram was going to sneak up and get him at any point. He kept looking over his shoulder to see where the ram was located in relation to him. After every one's tag number was documented we let the ram loose with the girls. He was very happy when he ran over to see all of them.
We fixed the lower door from parts of the old one and a few new pieces. The only compromise was I had to put the boards horizontally instead of vertically. The boards were too short to go vertically. I didn't want a bunch of fresh colored boards on the bottom half of the door. Again, I left lots of room for door shifting. Annmarie says its for natural ventilation. I think it is as good a reason as any. The barn is totally ready for winter! I just need to bungie cord the feeders together so the sheep cannot pull them over. It is the only thing left. I need to actually buy more bungie cords to make this happen. I am way more ready for winter than I was last year. It is getting easier and easier.
