Trying to catch up

by on Jun.03, 2009, under Uncategorized

Sorry for the lack of recent updates, and the pictures reminding everyone of the winter ice storm. 

The farm has been a very busy place over the past couple weeks.  We have been able to finish up some board fence that has allowed us to remove some wire fencing that was causing problems.  It won’t be painted for a while, but I don’t think the horses will mind for now.

We also have cut and baled the first cutting of hay.  We were able to dodge the rain and get it all in the barn dry.  It is a big relief to get it done, and I really appreciate everyone’s patience with the mess while we were filling the barn.

If nothing changes this week, both silos are supposed to start coming down on Monday 6/8/09.  Once they are gone the process of moving the electric service can start which will then lead to adding an equipment shed and a maintenanceshop.  This is all to make the place more efficient and allow work to be done during inclement weather.  It is my hope that by fall we can start making some significant improvements to both horse barns.

We have a couple new boarders so if you haven’t met them, take the opportunity to say hi.

The delivery date is also closing in quickly for the birth of our third child.  Evelyn Sarah is due July 27 so among other things we are trying to prepare for our upcoming gift delivery.

I will update with some new pictures soon.

Thanks to everyone who is making Bittersweet Acres a success!  We couldn’t do it without you.
