Nursery...Check


We have been busy trying to get the nursery ready. I know that we have goats and sheep but...... they gonna have babies.  We took the trip down to Skowheagan, Maine to Tractor Supply.  Our Tractor Supply in Bangor will be ready about April. They keep moving it back. So we must take the hour drive for now.  We got cattle panels to make the lambing jugs.  I guess ours will be both lambing and kidding jugs.  First we had to cut the panels to workable lengths.




We are using the two stalls that Ted cleaned out earlier this year.  We have four areas set up. We had to add extra wall. What ever was in this stall decided to eat part of it.  We attached the panels to the walls with a snap and eye system to hold them securely. We used 2x4's for added support. 











The final product exceeded our expectations.  The girls should be comfortable. Isabella could kid as early as next Monday with Corina right behind. 
I had more pictures. They went somewhere. They are out there in Blogger land. Lost forever more. At least here on the farm it is alot easier to move things around.  You just pick them up and move them.  I enjoy blogging so I guess I will try to figure this mess out. I think as I get older I resent changes. I sure resent the hell out of this one.  If things look strange here, just ignore them. I'm going to. Can anyone tell me where spellcheck went to? Now you guys will know that I can't spell worth a darn. I'm going to bed. Night all from Mainely Ewes Farm

So exciting! I can't believe it's lambing time already! Your post has reminded me that I need to look up some dates and be prepared here as well :) I wish you the best and can't wait to see little lamb pics!

Nice pens. If you uploaded your pictures to Blogger they should be on your Picasa page. Just scroll down to the bottom of your dashboard and click on Picasa web album and see if they are there.
I was very happy to discover this when my son wiped out some of my pictures when restoring my computer.

Oh that's exciting about getting a Tractor Supply in Bangor! I love that place...and I really don't even know why either, since I don't have any farm animals...yet. ~Lili
