All I Want for Christmas
He - and those flags - are showing where our new calving shed will be. He and Jake did a little dirt work before the crew shows up to build the 20- by 20-foot shed.
a couple of old barns in our neighborhood fell to the fury of a spring storm. The bow in our barn got deeper and the door blew off.
We rent the barn and the pasture, but we own the property just to the west, where the new calving shed will go.
Christmas Gift of 2010, a calving pen with head gate, to the new shed.
Oh, wow! I guess the calving shed is my 2015 Christmas gift. Oh, honey, you shouldn't have! (Actually, yes, he should. He says it was my idea.)
I wish we were getting it for Christmas. The company was supposed to start construction this month. (It's one of the reasons we chose them.) Now, they say it will be January. Our heifers are due to start calving at the end of January, so let's hope the crew arrives January 4, their new scheduled time.
Otherwise, it will be a "bah humbug!"
