It’s Here!!!

Grab a cuppa and have a look at our new arrival! Tears of joy filled my eyes as we get one step closer to bringing our girls home!

Mr Myers of Myers Mini Barns called this morning at 8:30 and said he’d be here within the hour.

He pulled over the curb and across the side yard.

10 X 28

It’s divided in half.

Honey is an engineer and he planned for the barn pad perfectly.

The trailer was backed onto the pad and lined up just right.

The girls were watching with excitement, just hoping that they might be able to live in the barn.

Of course the turn out area is for the cows. The next area is for hay and straw storage with a 5 foot wall so that I can throw bales over. The last area is 8 feet and is my milking parlor. The storage section is the only one with a floor. We off centered the double doors so that the left door is plum with the wall for the cows to walk into the stanchion. It looks perfect!

The really cool thing on this trailer ($30K trailer) was the hydrolics. It went up and down, and even sideways. See the wheel in the center. By remote, Mr Myers could adjust this barn to sit perfectly to Honey’s liking!

Then he started to lower the back end.

A little bit more.

Ok, some more.

There we go. Just right!

Now the front comes down.

dscn2592

A little more.

Bravo!

Then they had to jack it up and remove the supports.

A view from the back. I’ll re-paint the shed this spring.

Jacking it up to remove the skids.

dscn2601

Pull that skid out.

Finally, my view from the kitchen. I wanted to be able to see them from the house so that when my Jersey girls calve then I can hear them and be there to help.

Now we have to dig some fence post holes and put up some gates for a corral. Then string the electric fence that I purchased from Premier Fence.
