It’s always in the background of any work done in our corral… a tiny red building that’s seen better days… and we’ve been talking about fixing it up for YEARS.
Well, yay, Brandon!
There was an amazing array of objects… branding irons, horn weights, dehorner spoons, benches, stools, jugs, cattle paddles, sorting sticks, needles, syringes, freeze branding irons, heaters, pour-on guns, and maybe a bit of trash. He pulled off some of the insulation board and found some treasures. Whoever built this enjoyed themselves. There was an empty Walker whiskey bottle (Hiram, not Johnny), a vintage Miller High Life can, and some chewing tobacco cans.
The plan is for a window… to let more light in and maybe some heat (we FREEZE sitting in there!), some OSB and new insulation… plus plugging those holes the woodpeckers and mice have made over the years.
It’ll be awesome when it’s done!
