Summer Article - Building a Small Barn

build an alpaca barn

Here is a morning shot of the boys' barn.  Note that the gates/panels are folded back against the walls to give it a run in shed appearance.  Both gates can be pulled across the front to make it a closed in shelter for grooming, herd health management or to keep them out.  The 2 X 6 chute in the middle is perfect for doing shots, toenails, grooming, etc.

I really love these panels and gates from Light Livestock.  Check them out for more information.  http://www.lightlivestockequipment.com/

Nope Janice it is not a bad thing and by the weekend I will be with you winshig the same thing even more than I am now. At least you are not alone. The only bad thing which is actually pretty major is that it is going to be one heck of a teeny wait. And I know, those dang flowers stole the show, but they are cute all happy out there. I took that picture about 4 years ago and the barn kind of got lost waaaaaaaaaaaay back there Makes sense to love the flowers, you can see THEM!
