Since tearing down our corn crib, Alex's favorite hangout, we have been non-stop! I need to get a haircut badly and just can't justify the time to get it done. The new barn, replacing the corn crib, has a few of the bones up but is on hold until Wednesday when the special order trusses arrive - we wanted a steeper pitch to match the existing horse barn. We have had to get hay in the barn and my wife had to get a horse ready for a show this past weekend (3 firsts, one second, one third, one fifth, one grand champion and a reserve champion and this is from a horse rescued from the race track after 90 races to save him from breaking down and being sold to the killers).
Alex and Rocky get along so well it is almost unreal. I would never have dreamed that a stuffy warrior like Alex could be so kind and playful to a kitten. But they play all the time and Alex loves to hold Rocky down and clean him. Alex has had to spend a lot more time indoors than he cares to because we have been away from the house so much. Nor is he allowed out when the contractor's crew is on-site building the barn. Not the way he loves to smell and climb around on trucks!
So we tuck Mr. Alex away safe and sound in the house. Aw, Mr. Stuffy Pants, too bad...so sad....

Summertime it is so busy around the barn! We are getting our hay soon too.We had a lot of rain so it is being cut late. Mom and Pop have been out riding the trails and I guard the barn. We had a baby bunny nest in the barn this year !! They got under the boards in the hay room where I couldn't get them. grrrr.
I hope you have fun sniffing around when it is safe to go out :)
That is great that you get along with Rocky so well. I like to clean my little brofur too. Concats on your DDP today!
