I talk about my barn all the time, but I don’t think I’ve ever given a real tour, so I thought I would today since the theme at You Capture is things that start with b. Things like barn. Here’s the front. It’s divided into three sections.
On the left is one of the areas the goats get. The open doorway is the one at the front of the barn.
Right now I am trying to get it cleaned out before winter, so I have some tools of the trade. You can see by the stanchion, this was originally a dairy barn.
There are two of these mangers with two separate places to put grain~feed bunks.
On the right side of the barn is where the birds are. It might not look very pretty, but the pen gives them quite a bit of room, and it keeps them safe from predators.
Beyond the birds is a small lean-to that I can house a few goats in. Of course, this is a favorite nesting place of geese.
In the middle, is a large open area that is used to store hay.
You can come on in and see what it looks like inside. There’s an old latch to keep the door from blowing open.
We have quite a few bales in there, but I still need to add more before I’m ready for winter.
It is a sturdy barn with solid beams holding the roof up.
From the back you can see the cattle lean-to that was added on at some point. The goats get this section also.
There is a big door between the two parts that the goats have as their home. Myson, my bottle baby, is showing you what a big goat he is now.
You might also find some young bucks running around. These are Mortie and Ferdie, Sugar’s twins.
Every so often my little Bob cat goes running through.
He likes to hunt in the barn much to the annoyance of the birds.
Finally, if you’re in the barn, my lovable friendly wether Bud is likely to show up.
This really is about all there is to see in my barn. Hope you enjoyed the tour.
