This is the stock rack we had given to us this past weekend (that I referred to in an earlier post). It is such a perfect fit for my truck - I was thrilled.
It took us about an hour to drive over to where it was on Saturday, but they helped us load it, and some other stuff. We are also getting a brooder hood and a big feeder from them. Steven cut his finger pretty badly trying to get the brooder out. Since we had no water, hopefully it doesn't get infected; but it seems to be healing okay.
Then on the way home we stopped at the Carp's and got 10 bales of straw to start weatherizing the house and animals (since it is supposed to turn cold this week, that's not a moment too soon). We got those bales placed on Saturday before I left for bible study, so overall, it was a very full day.
Things we still have to do before winter really sets in includes: plastic on the north windows; more straw bales around house foundation; clean out goat barn; finish mulching garden, winterize the mowers and tractor. Then throughout the winter we plan to do a lot of work with the chain saw to clear some areas up.
