Update on mini barn!

Yay! We now have a roof, 2 walls  put up and everyone will have their very own window in their stall when completed! Today the cement will be going in the walkway and the first layer of limestone will be put into the stalls. The two donkeys will share a stall.  They are too attached to eachother be separated.  Everyone else has their own 8X8.  We took a little break from barn building
with all the holiday BBQs, wedding, graduations parties, baby showers, and birthday parties that have been going on the last 6 weeks but now we are
back in full force to get this barn done by the time our next new arrival comes in a month!!

They had been staring at this barn for a long time!  We fenced around it and let them come in.
Now they NEVER leave even when we have the tractor in there and nail guns sounding off!
And why would they?  They have shade, protection from any rain, and all the yummy grass in there they can eat... well at least they did up until last night lol! 

3 hours after letting them go inside.... Flynn is STILL in there!!

It kinda reminds me of an exhibit at the zoo or something like that!
Appartently Fairah was thinking the same thing.

After the fence post in removed this will be the view from the barn door

Cowboy finally left his new barn structure just long enough to have some dinner.

Sorry Nadia!  No doggies in the barn!


  1. Great pictures. Looks like the barn is coming along nicely and they just don't want to leave their new home. Bet everybody can't wait until it's finished.

  2. Love to see the ponies enjoy the fruits of our labor! Nothing worse than building a beautiful shelter.... and then they refuse to spend time in it....

    I came by your blog because I loved your tagline about chasing childhood dreams- totally agree!
