the old stall.
We lined the walls with glassboard mounted on MDF board -much easier said than done. Nothing is square in this old barn and the MDF board must have swelled in this humidity - It was tricky to work with. If you don't look too closely at our carpentry, it looks wonderful. The walls will be easy to wipe clean and the pristine white looks so sanitary, as a dairy should. Maybe it's a bit too sterile- this milking parlor needs some colorful cow art on the wall.
This unflattering of LaFonda photo taken yesterday shows how gigantic her udder is now- with her huge calf-filled belly, lying down is very awkward. But standing and walking are also cumbersome. She never complains, but she seems pretty uncomfortable-- I hope this calf comes SOON!
