The contractor is on his way this morning. The goal is to get the barn laid out, the area cleared and ground leveled so posts can be set. I will be so excited when all that heavy equipment starts up and work has begun.
The pyrs and pacas are in a little corral outside their current barn. They like so much to supervise we thought it best to diminish the temptation. They have negotiated requirements for staying in the new, smaller quarters whilst the barn is being built. Pyrs held out for daily bones or peanut butter filled kongs. The alpacas weren't budging from their demand for daily alfalfa hay - non negotiable on that. Thank heaven they are food motivated!
