These doors are the ones the heifers in the barn yard have been sneaking through to get into the barn and run around in front of the cows, so they got done first, and have wood on both sides. The ones in good repair will only get stickloplast (Styrofoam) and wood on the inside, instead of a Styrofoam-filled wood sandwich.
The biggest problem on Saturday was getting the heavy door hung back on the hinges, but Garry said it went much faster and easier yesterday!
|The babushka next door was talking with Max while he worked|
While Andrey and Garry worked on doors in the morning, Max B was forking some manure on Garry's driveway flower bed, so next year's flowers will look even better. This year his four o'clocks and marigolds looked really good until the apples fell off the neighbors tree and the cows going out with the village herd started looking for them, knocking his flowers around as they walked (or ran) through the bed.
Here is the new heifer calf that was born last week, her mother is a skinny white cow Garry bought in the village as a heifer, she was afraid of the other heifers when he brought her home, and even as a cow, she is too timid to eat, it looks like she may not make any milk this year, but she did have this nice looking calf!
While I was outside I took more photos, so here are some fall photos.
