We have recently been doing some renovations to our barn in preparation for a future acquisition. Elizabeth has been doing a lot of work out there, including a very large amount of cleanup. Here she and Evelyn are making some new shelves.
The barn did not have any windows on the first floor at this side, so the next project was to install two of the windows that had been removed from the house when we made our extension. They don’t look much like barn windows, but they work to let in the light and air!
Once we had strengthened the walls on three sides, we had to build a new fence to keep this creature from escaping. Here are Nathanael and Elizabeth fastening the new wall to the floor.
Once the fence was complete, we had to paint the whole thing. We had some difficulty opening one of the paint cans, which had remained shut for approximately the past twenty years.
And here is the finished product:
So, what do you think is going in here? Shall I tell, or shall I keep it a secret until it arrives? Maybe I should give you some hints.
Guess what animal will be here.
It is an animal that is commonly found in barns, but it is not a sheep or a goat.
It is reputed by some sources to be able to jump quite high, but it is neither a rabbit nor a locust.
Some have a golden-brown colour, and a few people have seen theirs swimming or wading, but it is not a goldfish
It is larger than a dog or cat, but it is not a deer, and it is not a giraffe.
