Today we poured the stem walls!!! Larry's crew will pull forms tomorrow and start laying out all the lines for the slab looking to pour that by early next week and then the timbers... we were hoping for a raising on the 4th but looks like at this point the july 10 - 11th... there will be a big announcement - I promise !! things are going really well !! Every one is working hard and getting creative to build something beautiful on a tight budget... I hooked up the horses to make the work area for the timber framers as smooth as we could and Larry decided to try his hand at workin' the team.. turns out this guy really can do anything : ) of course goatio continues to supervise the entire project and is doing an excellent job as job foreman !
also in farm news a shot out to my friend sarah who helped me to gather up the bull again this year -- this is the third year in a row she has helped me pen up the bull (and castrate calves) ... in the words of a certain cowboy we rounded him up with a butterfly net : ) thanks sarah you ARE the ultimate cowgirl!!! now charlie is safely in the barn he'll have to have a little time out from the ladies till august when he can go back to his job of gettin' his game on... : )
