So here comes the fried part. We have/had a very narrow window for roofing the barn. We are between snowstorms. It's supposed to start snowing again around noon tomorrow. The roofers showed up hours late (around noon) today, discovered they didn't have an important part of the roof, and left. They have to drive to Ft. Collins (108 miles one way) to get it. Grrrrr.
I started stripping the stalls yesterday and finished this morning. I did this because I was worried they'd drop a screw or insulation into the stalls, and a horse would eat it. With the floors bare, I could just sweep up whatever they dropped. Here is about half of what I took out of Paj's stall alone -
So you can see where I'm not real keen on bedding the stalls, bringing the horses home, taking the horses back to Chuck's in the morning and stripping stalls again. On the plus side, I am really pleased that my shoulder held up well. I also covered the waterers, took stuff off the walls, etc, but that's minor. I want my barn roofed. I want my horses healthy and happy and home.
