Work has started on the run-in on the south side of the barn. We got the headers up yesterday (boards that connect the posts horizontally and on the barn horizontally). Gary put huge lag screws on the boards on the barn so that the shed would be very stable in the strong winds we get here from the south. We will use hurricaine brackets to attach the boards connecting the barn side to the post side. Hope that makes sense, lol. The cold front arrived about 3:30 this morning with high winds from the north so it is very cold outside, temp is 35 degrees. Don't know how much it will warm up this afternoon. How much work gets done today depends on the temps. I have to go get feed today for the horses, don't want them to run out!! I have taught Hawk a trick. I ask him if he is a good boy and he nods his head up and down. So funny. They are so smart.

Hi Maggie, brrrr it is cold here! 47 degrees and it is 11:00 A.M. Hope all is well with you and the herd. Looks like Gary has a great project going. Can't wait to see the finished product. Hugs, Kay
