Jack Pens 2004
Below is the new paddock in front that
we have been working on for three weeks...all finished except for the
metal on the barn (it is arriving tomorrow), and hanging the vinyl strips
for the door, and making the hay manger inside, and making a gate on the
other side of the barn so the donkey can not go between the barn and the
fence to the dog yard. Then we start on the new paddock on the right!
Will it never end??? No, and we love it!!
Here is the new paddock on March 15th, 2004...all finished except for the vinyl strips for the door and the hay manger and hanging his electric water bucket!
This is what Joe and I have been up to
in our spare time! Still a million things more to do!
The New Jack Pen still in progress!
We still have to cut two tops off of two posts...add the metal to the windows...add the kickboards inside and the built in hay manger...put the vinyl strips on the door for winter time...and it will be completed! The quarterdown is at least 8 inches thick..maybe thicker...the different colors it looks is because we wet it to get it to harden and set. It has 30 tons of quarterdown inside...all dumped in one pile and spread by shovel and wheelbarrow by Joe and me!
This is inside
before we had it filled with quarterdown just to show you how thick it
is. Kickboards will
be added all around the stall up to the second board.
This is to
show you how thick the quarterdown is outside too
has finally all been spread!
it down with a hose so it will dry and set

hay rack..this one is large because we will use his pen for a maternity
ward next year when Pepper will be turned out in the big pasture with
girls that were allowed to rest this year. Pepper's kickboards have been
added all around too.
