Multi-species barn refresh

animalgroupThis small farm hosts Angora goats, alpacas, and sheep,all of whom share a barn and pasture space.  Most of the gates in the barn were secured and managed with bungee cords, and had to be lifted up to be moved.  Moreover, the barn had accumulated a great mass of sticky cobwebs (a fire hazard).  We did a full cleaning of walls, ceiling and rafters, mounted gates, and installed easy-to-use gate latches for one-handed open and close. We also engineered a handy feed bucket latch (so that nosy goats and sheep cannot dislodge the buckets).   The owner was delighted!
