|Went out to the new house yesterday and while I was there it was more picture taking time. I ventured into the old milking barn to really see how much clean up there is. Um, a lot!|
|This side of the barn was turned in to dog kennels.|
|A sign on one of the doors.|
|All I can say with this mess is, "Wow".|
|There is a lot of work ahead to get this mess cleared and cleaned up.|
|Not sure what these hoses were used for since they look pretty modern.|
|I noticed water faucets and decided to see if there was still running water inside the barn. Much to my surprise there is! Sweeeet! The actual barn clean up won't happen until Spring of next year due to winter fast approaching.|
|I noticed this can hanging from a tree. Don't have a clue as to why. Maybe in time the answer will come. |
Now for some history I uncovered about the property.
In the 1970's a man named Roy Kabat owned the property. He trained animals to be used in Hollywood movies and commercials. The animals were at the property with him and he would travel down to Hollywood with them.
Also, Roy started the program Dogs For The Deaf right there on the property. That explains the kennels in the barn and also the kennels located on the other side of the barn. Dogs For The Deaf are now located about a mile from where I live now. It is a wonderful organization. Here is a link in case you would like to learn more about them http://www.dogsforthedeaf.org/
Roy passed away in 1986.
I also found out that there was 280 acres total, but with time is just now the 43 acres. Also the property is a Sensitive Big Game Winter Range Habitat. Not exactly sure what that means just yet.
I haven't been able to search further back yet. But given time I will find out more of the history.
Oh, and I saw five Does coming down off one of the hills behind the barn. I was so excited.
One more quick thing. Yes, all the chickens are moving with to the new place. I forgot to add them in the list of critters.
Until next time......................
