To add to the chaos, the horses got the works this week as well - spring shots, new coggins, teeth floated, and feet trimmed. They are now enjoying a beautiful, quiet Friday afternoon in the sunshine with no loud machinery swinging timbers in the air. Of course they are covered in mud - I guess they thought they needed a little spa treatment after their busy week!
We are probably just 7 - 10 days away from the start of calving season, so things will get a little more crazy for the next month, but hopefully the great weather will stick around!!! I'll post pictures of those new babies when they start to arrive!
Here are a few photos of the new barn - amazing how much can happen in 3 days!

|I love the super tall center aisle - great design for hot summer weather, and the roof pitch matches the arena.|
