It remained intact when we pulled it down.
We previously used the roof in goat shed improvements phase 1. Dan took this wall, cut it in half, and attached it to the back side of the shed.
This will block rain and wind and make the loafing area drier and cozier in nasty weather.
The other half was shortened for a pony wall on the other side.
We can get rain and wind from this side too, so again, it will offer weather protection.
He re-installed the gate so that it is under the new roof. The milking room is immediately to the left, which means I can get goats in and out even if it's raining! I am so happy with that!! The girls will be too!!!

The amazing thing is that when we stand back and admire the new addition, it looks as though it always belonged there. I still have some barn paint from doing the chicken coop, so a new coat will freshen it up nicely.
I won't move the girls back in until their pasture is well established.

After the pigs rooted out all that ground ivy I planted cool weather grasses, legumes, and veggies. It's been slow to get established because rainfall and good growing temps are always so iffy this time of year. It's coming along now, though, so hopefully I can get the girls back in their shed and pasture soon.
