The transformation from milk barn to horse barn has consumed a lot of my time lately.

Here is the stall area in all its untransformed glory:

Old, flaking pinkish paint. Wasp nests. Trench filled with cow manure and dirt that the barn cats used as a giant litter box.

After putting in hours of scraping paint, shoveling and sweeping, hosing & scrubbing down, using several gallons of fresh primer and white paint, shoveling gravel into the trench and having Clay do some amazing barn door work and covering the milking stanchions:

We have stall mats down now too and Clay will soon be using his expert construction skills to build a stall divider with gate in the middle.
