Keeeeping Bussssy.....

Oh my stars- have we ever been keeping so busy...  Lets see- we built a brand new home- out of our old pole barn over the course of a year and a couple months..  ( still finishing )And now- the demo and cleanup begins on the rest of the property...

Soo- here's some things- other than working on new designs and club stuff- and all that jazz- that we've been up to...

Sooo, here's our converted pole barn- and new home..  Front & Back..  Lots to finish- trim, a new shop door, decor, and painting the roof...  Here's a front and back view..






And....  Our barn extension in the works..  Added 8 foot on this end for the horses..  Just need to finish up- get some doors on- and close things up some more...



And do you think one of these guys would get out of the way..  Ohhhh- not so much!!!  ha ha..   They be Inside Horses...  :)   Spoiled Ones!!!



And...  Adding onto the right side of the barn - for a feed and tack room, hay room in the middle, and a spot on the end for our lawnmower, garden equipment and so forth....  Lots to finish- and tick tock- Fall is here- and Ol' Man Winter- around the corner..  Whew!!!  NOT as young as we were..  For sure...




And another front view of our house- in the "rubble and mess"..  Lets see..  2 full cord of wood to stack, once they fix our power line going from pole to house, and then we batton down the front- nice and tight...  And- we need to get our awning up- so the wood and our front door is under cover..   And need to add on a sliding door- to the shop end ( to the right )..  That's John's converted garage- work shop....



And Holy Moses!!!  Used our truck and chains and a lot of manpower- to get this trailer demo'd and down to a semi- flat pile!!!  Have a good friend coming over at 8 a.m.- with his John Deere- to make this mess a lot more manageable- to get it out to the dump/bury site...  My goodness..  TONS of a  mess..  Served as a home for almost 4 years- and now- we're living soooooooo much better in our gorgeous new home..  Lovin' It....



And then we have our chicken coop..  Need to fix quite a bit- and re-do the run- before winter...  Batten down those hatches as well..  Gots to keep the hen house happy!!!  Had some damage last winter- and wellll- lets just say- it got added to the list for this summer- before winter type of deal....



Another view of our "Mess" out back..  Lordy- I can't wait till things get finished up and back to nice nice..  Next Spring and Summer are going to be awesome!!!  Play with horses- enjoy our home and property and finally relax and garden some..  Get our pool up and going- and go from there...  Goodness....



Was out walking- and had two stalkers!!!  ha ha..  They followed me everywhere!!!  Love em!!!  Coop is up front and Jersey is behind...  Our two newest additions to the family..  Love these guys!!!  



And..   They were both rescues...  And Rach is here- on Jersey- who came from my friend Cindy's place..   She fostered him for about 3 years- and so he was just a pasture puff....  :)  A Standardbred - off track retiree...  And this is the first time he's been ridden in 3 years..  Today- we started working him under saddle again- after about a month of ground work and back to basic's stuff..  What an awesome dude he is....  Love it...



And...  Me on Coop & Rach on Jersey!!!  Had a fun ride- just tooling about in our pasture.   Both were sooooo lazy today..  I'm thinking they were thinking about the hay we just left em...  lol...  FUN STUFF..  & some much needed Horse Therapy after a "day"....



More of that good ol  Horse Therapy...  Ahhhhh



And despite their doing the I'm the boss thing- while not under saddle- they did absolutely awesome working together today!!!  Love it...



And can't forget about Ging Ging and Blacky too!!!  Getting some nibbles- after they stood quite and behaved while we went out and about..  MOOCHERS!!!  :)  



And..   That's all folks...  Lovin' on some critters- does a heart and soul gooooood....

Will be back with more chit chat and busy business stuff here soon!!!  Tons in the works and planned...



Many Blessings
Niki
