New runs :)

Thanks to the rain and more rain I cannot get into my fields to take the materials to set up the last 6 dog runs so I am fencing the menage which gives the dogs 825 metre square to play in. I am fencing another area half that size too so ready for summer.

Sapphire our little mare has had a stunning foal who is lapping up all the attention. She should make a good sized horse as her Dad is the stallion the queen uses to produce her carriage pulling, grey horses. We have called our baby Queenie.

Preparing for summer

The dog boarding extension is almost complete which gives us an additional 20 units. 

Just the inner, granite,  floor to put in which will help to keep the dogs cool as we are going to have a hot summer :) :)

We have created a car parking area for the dogs too which should ease the congestion on my yard at busy times also make it safer for dogs moving from car to kennels as it will be secure with fencing all around.

We have 9 separate exercise areas with a further 6 planned 

Having run my kennels for 3 years now I take great delight in having lots of separate areas for dogs to play in either alone or with a couple of "friends" and as long as we have enough pens they can all go out for a good, long time. When they are back in their own unit they sleep and are generally quiet until the next out time in the afternoon they then sleep all night. 

Boarding kennels do not need to be constant yapping. Thankfully :)
