Our little white barn has had several jobs over the last year.
First it was the goat house.
Then is was the hawk hut.
Now, it's the sheep shed.
With lambs on the way, we needed a place for birthing pens,
or jugs as they call them.
Wayne made ours out of aluminum. He's so talented! See how the rails are closer at the bottom? Genius, I tell you. It's handy that we have a family manufacturing business with aluminum to spare.
To the jugs, we added a layer of pine shavings on the floor with straw on top of that so it will be nice and soft for the little lambs.
There are feed bins and water buckets up high so the little ones won't reach them (we hope)
and a fire proof heat lamp mounted low enough to keep them warm.
There's a new frost free faucet right outside for water.
And a shelf with lambing supplies close to the jugs.
Everything is ready.
Now we just need some babies!
