Meet Rondell. She was shown as a yearling and did quite well. Jessie was impressed that she walked off the trailer nice and calm and Jason led her around, set her up and walked her before putting her in the pasture. I think she is campaining to show her this winter. But that is not an option - she is too old:)
So the plan was to move the bull into his own little pasture - specifically so he would have the run in shed that the horses have used. But, it needed some work:
This picture was taken before we did anything - all those boards the horses have pushed off over the years. So we got some new rough cut boards from the Amish sawmill, and we got busy Saturday afternoon. Then I left to take the kids trick or treating and Todd kept working. By Sunday morning we were ready to put the siding back on with the new siding:
We also put kicker boards up inside that are 3 feet high on all 3 sides of the shed. This way, the bull and the horses cannot kick off the siding boards - the kicker boards are 2 1/2 inch thick oak boards.
Now we just have to put 1 fence up and the bull can live here quite comforatbly, once we bed it up with straw.
