New pix; horses, dogs, tack room, etc.

Just thought I would share some new pix.

We finally got through building the tack room with the exception of a few little finishing touches. It isn't perfect but a lot better than I was expecting with a couple of cowboys doing all the work (me and my Dad)LOL. Considering the contractor wanted to charge us over $4000 to build one and we got it done by ourselves for just a little over $600 and a little over 5 days work, it's pretty darn good. Parts of it look a little country-fied but it's hella stout and that's what matters.

Day 1: Got particle board up on the 2 inside walls and got the framework for one outside wall done.

Day 2: got the other wall framework done and framed in the door.

Day 3: Got all the interior wall lining put up and the rafters as well.

Day 4: Put up the exterior wall lining and most of the ceiling.

Day 5: Finished the ceiling, built the ladder up the side, put up the door track, built the door and hung it up.

Today: finished the final touches on the door and got it adjusted and hung straight, finishing touches inside to seal up cracks and open spaces in the corners and floor. Also went ahead and hung up my bridle rack on the far wall. Waiting for saddle racks to be delivered to put the saddles in there.

Now on to the critter pix. I have just recently made really good friends with one of our young dogs so he has been running loose to keep me company while I work on the tack room.

This is Trip.

And this is our old girl Jaycee. She gets the run of the place as she's left loose all the time. Oh, and if anyone wonders about her wrinkled lip, she will 'smile' whenever you talk to her.

They kept me company while I worked.

And poor Jaycee got tired of Trip, he's still mostly a puppy at just over a year old.

And now on to the horse pix.................finally LOL. I didn't realize until I came home that I didn't take any pix of my pasture full of bay horses :).

John, Dobe, and Rafe:

Rafe, Dobe, and Pokey

My main guy, he looks good even though he's fat and fluffy LOL.

"I know you have food. Can't you tell I'm starving? FEED ME!"

"Fine, if you won't feed me, I'll jog away."

Pokey's fat QH butt.

Bessie's tubby self.

Taz, poor ugly little guy.

And last but not least, Rafe.

He was such a pain when I was trying to pull my extension cord to the light pole (which happens to be in the middle of their pen). He would wait until I was walking toward the pole and then he would walk up, smell the cord, and step right on it *rolls eyes*.

Green with envy, but very happy for ya!
I can't wait to move my downstairs "tack room" out to the barn where it belongs!
Are you insulating against heat/cold?
Or is that not really some thing you have to worry about there?

Thanks you guys.

SLCS, no we aren't insulating. There won't be anything in there that will be really effected by heat/cold (what small variation we get down here anyway LOL), no water hookups or medicines. Mostly, it's just to have a tidy, organized place to store our stuff to protect it from the wind, dirt, and thieves.

I love the pix! I adore Rafe!

It looks great!!! All the horses look fantastic as always. Rafe, the little turd. My old gelding would do that to, except he would pick it up!
