Building A Shed

We have almost finished fencing the new pasture so now we have been working on a “loafing shed” for the cattle this winter.

I have no idea why it is called a loafing shed – maybe the bovines will just goof off here??

Our friend John the builder is helping Rick get the shed built.  

I have to laugh sometimes at the weather they routinely work in.  In Bakersfield if it rains six drops within six minutes the crews roll up and head for the shop – done for the day.

Here it can be pouring rain – well over a half  an inch in a couple of hours – and the work goes on.  Everyone puts on their rain gear and they carry on.  

So our little shed is coming together and the cattle will have a shelter for the winter. And no one melted working in the rain.

    Mark and I walk daily here in Chowchilla and the other day it was raining, slightly to our standards, and we walked anyway without coats and people kept giving us weird looks or telling us to put a coat on. LOL. I know exactly what you mean. I have to tell you though that we are enjoying fall in the valley, it almost feels like summer at the ranch.

    Nice shed!

    We were back in the valley a few weeks ago and it does feel different doesn’t it – like going back a season? It was fall here when we left and felt like summer there.

    Hope you two are hanging in there – I know you have a difficult situation to deal with. Glad you are able to enjoy the mild weather.
