Homestead Happenings


Last week the hayshed collapsed flat into the snow. We thought that it was the heavy snow, but on closer inspection, it appears that the big timbers used to build it were not treated and it rotted off at ground level. Then a wind walked by and gave it a push.

The good news is no one was hurt and the hay underneath it was almost gone. Robin hadn’t gone to get the last 300 bales from the hay farmer yet. We have two months to clean it up before we are “open” and it poses a hazard to the public.

Robin wanted to build a hay shed closer to the animals and is hoping to salvage some of the roofing materials to use for that project. The old timbers will be cut into firewood, after all the nails and fencing are removed from them. What a big job!

It may need to wait till the snow is Gone.
