|On the right: storage room/stall, tack room, wash stall, feed room/stall|
The other empty stall, past the wash rack area, is used as a feed room. We mix up the horses morning vitamins and supplements in here; it houses the cat and her food, goat supplements and the cabinet full of poultices, bandages and medications. It was also caked in bird poop. Those of you who know Brett well, will understand when I say that we both found the situation to be deeply unacceptable. Brett has been thinking about how to put a ceiling or cover over the stall without it looking tacky.
While I was gone last weekend, he and our neighbor put up a ceiling. When I got home, it was finished and Brett had cleaned the bird poop off of the table, the cabinet, my show tack box and the Rubbermaid container for extra bags of chicken and dog feed. It looks amazing.
And it is staying clean. Brett and Marv (the neighbor) were going to put wood siding over the ceiling to give it a more finished look. I much prefer the open, rustic look so Brett has agreed to leave it as is.
Now we have a clean, sanitary place to mix the horses buckets and Passage has a clean bedroom. We are loving it.
