I’m so excited, I can hardly stand it!! Another shelter!
So I went into the local shelter place, EQ-WINE COVERS, with my producing money in hand, to purchase another 27 x 18 steel shelter. My plan is to make a ‘two-stall plus shade aisle’ type of structure in Norma and Dodger’s area. The goal is to have a ‘sick bay’ for anyone I need to tend to this winter. And, when not in use, it can double as a grooming shelter or anything else.
OK, so I went into the shelter place… and ordered it. Yay! Just ordering it felt so good! I’ve waited (and so have the horses…) for so long, it seems.
Well, I must have gone in on the right day because as we were talking (I had purchased the first shelter from them, so she recognized me), I told her how our place is barren and we need anything and everything to create wind breaks and shade and weather protection…
AND FROM THAT… she said, well, we can give you a shelter … – it will be used material, but it will all go together perfectly. She said that she admired that Horse and Man raised money for horses in need!
So, when they delivered the shelter that I purchased, they also delivered an 18 x 18 used shelter for free! All I had to do was hire a guy to put it up! And I did. Yesterday.
I decided to put it in the rectangular paddock since it didn’t have any shade. Now, it does! Now I can separate the big gang of Finn, BG, Wrigley, Missy Miss and Mo. Missy Miss and Mo need to be alone for a while so that she can lose weight and also so that I can work with them more – without being constantly Wrigley-bugged.
