We finished the majority of the cleaning and it was safe for humans and horses again. Our large horses were moved in and we still needed a space for our two miniature horses. Below (l) was where we hoped to put them. We needed space for hay, storage and thought we could fix up this really scary north area. I also had plans to get goats and they needed a home. Off we go to Home Depot and more wood, nails, hinges and latches!
1. Clean & Disinfect – the barn was unsafe for both humans and animals; and add automatic waters.
2. Remove broken gates, existing plywood and rake through all the dirt for glass, screws and nails.
3. Replace all aluminum bars from stalls with wood
4. Paint, replace, fix and update all existing wood.
