It's finally finished................... Our son and DIL have just had the finishing touches added to the round horse yard we all built late last year. I thought readers might like to see how it has scrubbed up!! I think they [we] all did a fantastic job for 'bush carpenters'. It wasn't easy as each rail angle had to be measured and cut fairly precisely prior to 'Dad' doing his thing with the welder.
The rubber matting around the lower half is to prevent injuries to horses' legs. And, of course the sand is probably there to prevent our DIL if she happens to have a fall............. She's a very accomplished horsewoman, but as we all know, working with animals is never easy. They had a man with a little Bobcat machine spread the sand.
They are quite proud of it, a very sturdy yard indeed. Now, all we need is for them to breed or buy another Black Caviar [one of Australia current front runners], and those galvanized posts/rails can be gold plated..........LOL...
Thanks for always showing so much interest in all aspects of my life.
