Sand sand sand

The first barn is done - all sand bedding! See them lying down? Beachy.

We moved on to changing over the second (built in 1972) barn and found a great surprise! After removing the mattresses and cutting away the cement we found an old curb - no need to pour a new curb in this section!

This picture shows the sand that was already there as a base under the cement. It's been a major effort by everyone on the team.

This is now completed, and there's a small section on the opposite side to do.  But before that happens ... it's time to cut hay.  Everyone likes a little variety in their jobs, right?

When Kris isn't working on the farm, he is helping the boys with their 4-H calves.

The boys are juuuuust slightly stronger than the calves.  We'll see if that's still true in July!
