New barn floor
I posted a year or so ago asking for advice on re-doing my barn floor. The floor was rotting wood over mud. It had gotten pretty disgusting. So this year I finally re-did it.
I took the suggestions I got here and had the floor dug out and replaced the mud with limestone, and then put stall mats down in the areas the donkeys use. The inner hallway and their stalls.
What a difference! The guy that did the work for me said it was the most disgusting job he's ever done. There were 4 layers of pee soaked wood in each stall. Obviously, over the years, formers owners just put down new wood when there was a prblem, instead of tearing anything up.
It was really funny to watch the donkeys when they were able to walk on the stall mats ... they were such scary things! I thing the rubber smell really threw them off. It took hours for the 3 of them to finally decide it was OK to come in the barn and walk on this new scary stuff.
It was funny to watch.
Here are some before pictures:
I took down the stall you see when you walk into the barn, and a little "Tack" area that was near the water faucet.
Here is what it looks like now:
And I came home one day just in time to see this Hot Air Balloon land in the cow pasture next door.
And yes, the donkeys ALWAYS have to be in the pictures! LOL!
Thanks everyone for your great advise!
