The Daily Bovine and Equine Kaffeeklatsch

This is what I see every morning when I turn the donkeys out from their stall, and into their grazing pen.

Ruby & Gracie’s bovine friends come up for a chat…cows&donks1

Awwww…. sweet baby.

A meeting of the minds…

I always enjoy this part of the day. I also have a little preview of some progress made in the Barn/Cottage. In spite of many interruptions the past few weeks, there has been a fair amount of progress. We’ve had a lot of other things going on, including many visitors, a few road trips, fence-fixing, readying equipment for hay season, attempts at catching a wayward cat, and numerous projects.

The electrical wiring is complete, except for miscellaneous switches/outlets that will be installed later. This is what we have so far in the bathroom area… walls framed in, wiring, tub/shower shimmed and set, and a few other miscellaneous preps. Hopefully, there will be a toilet by the weekend. That would be nice, huh? And also it would be nice if the walls were covered before then :)

Off to search for boxes of nails for the nail gun. Where oh where can they be?

"Attempts" I am guessing the cat is still on the run?
Joe at lunch Saturday was talking about how much fun nail guns are. So much fun, that he bought two at one time!

Remind me again what you are making out of the barn/cottage? It looks like it is going to be beautiful. If we can just get the rain to stop here in Mid-MO, but I think its rain thru Tuesday :)!!! Robbin
