Getting Ready to Roll

Now that we're moooo-ving,

it's time to get the free trailer road and animal ready.

We divided the workload to best suit our gifts and abilities.

Meaning Hubby took all things metal.  I took all things wood. 

The trailer needed a new floor and Hubby graciously pulled all the rotted boards out for me.

Here was my mission and I chose to accept it. 

Cover that floor with boards because these girls need to get to their new home.  
(And I didn't think the current Flintstone-esque set-up would work very well.)

So I got out my trusty circular saw, stuck a pencil in my hair and got to work.

A stack of new lumber awaited my tape measure, pencil and saw.

And less than three hours later, we had a new floor!

Complete with custom rounded front.

And I'm happy to report that Hubby changed the bearings that needed to be replaced and put new tires on.  We're ready to roll!


  1. Wow - I envy your carpentry skills. I can just about wield a hammer effectively, and there it ends. Good job!

    1. I owe it all to my father and my VoAg teacher, Mr. Aichele.

  2. You are AMAZING! How are the girls? the four-footed girls and the two-footed ones, lol?

    1. The four footers are crabby. Sarah has plowed through our electric fence twice now. Leah is too scared to try it. All four of them are getting along just fine.

      The two legged ones are great!

  3. great job! Why is it whenever long haired ladies are getting down to work we have pencils in our hair? fascinating...

    1. I ALWAYS stick a pen or pencil in my hair...and then can't find it!

  4. Your talent amazes me, Annie! I think you can do anything you put your mind to doing. The floor looks great!!


I read each and every comment, thank you for sharing in our farm!
