last of the weekend news

WE BOUGHT ONE OF THOSE REALLY STURDY COSTCO PORTABLE GARAGE THINGS FOR A COUPLE OF HUNDRED BUCKS TO STORE OUR HAY. LLOYD AND MATT PUT IT UP TODAY SO IT IS ALL READY FOR OUR NEXT DELIVERY.

oops sorry caps lock was on.
anyway..that thing will probably hold twice as much hay so maybe now we can bring in 80-100 bales at a time. with the snow coming this is a good thing because our current hay shed only holds 50 and that is not enough to get us thru a month..the road to the barn could be too deep with snow for longer than that.
we did try plowing it one year but that just made a ton of really thick ice…very dangerous for the barn guys so i don’t want to do that again if we don’t have too.

we are going to convert the current hay shed into a nice little goat house..that way we can open up the stalls in the little barn to make room for 3 growing and/or very fat cows.

if that storage thing works good where it is, eventually we will build a permanent hay shed there and then move the garage thing somewhere else to store all of the wood and building crap we have around here…this means more room in the shop.
one must always have a plan in place for moving forward with our storage and housing issues…that garage thing may just have been our very brightest purchase…if it proves as versatile as i think it might.

4lane is still wobbly..he needs hand feeding or his head doesn’t stay still enough to get into a bowl. everyone else seems so far to be ok today altho i did hear that felix was throwing up again this afternoon.

snickers is making the transition well here…now if he will just get his butt out of that cage to make room for charlies arrival on thursday.
i am making little pizzas in the toaster oven for dinner…gotta go, i think they are ready.

    nake sure that storage unit is loaded up well so that if a wind storm comes thru you don’t have to worry about it flipping or taking off. Just from someone who knows folks have had that experience…I am sure you guys can load it up real solidly…

    some of the description of what cole is doing, somewhat sounds like vestibular, could this be a possibility?

    Just watch the snow load on the roof. My brothers collapsed last winter ’cause he forgot to clear it off. Oh and 2 liter pop bottles filled with water are great for holding the walls in place.

    it could be vestibular but probably not, he is missng the rapd eye movements and with vestibular you usually have either a slow or rapid progression, a plateau, and then a slow and steady improvement. it is classic how it presents.

    4lane is a more instant and irregular crises, significant improvement and then crises again…typical of cluster strokes with brain disease.

    Put some pallets down on the floor then put your hay down otherwise your bottom bales will wick the moisture from the ground and it will be worthless when you get to it. You guys are soooo wet down there.
