And The Saga Continues
When I went into the feed room, there was no room to move. They had installed a big panel on the wall right above where I put the feed. It may interfere with my putting extra bags on top of the feed bins, or it may not. I will just have to see.
The panel is connected to the panels on the barn roof. There were several big boxes in the room blocking my way and the feed container had been moved to the center area as well. It made for a big of a mess when I fed the Boys, but I guess it will all get straightened out eventually.
If the electrician showed up, I don't know about it. He will not have access to the main panel in the house as all is locked up. I wasn't going to give him liberty of going in the house unless I spoke to him first and made sure everything was OK. I will presume he has enough to do outside in the barn prepping for the final hookup.
The panels themselves are very unobtrusive. I do wonder about what happens when it snows. One part of the roof, over the run in area has a very shallow slope. Normally, snow would slide off and not collect there, but what if we have a big storm? I need to ask the company whether I will need to clean off th panels. That could be an overwhelming job to take on.
Meantime, in case you haven't figured it out, I did not ride. Tucker is doing very well with his protective boot, so he is out during the day, enjoying what is proving to be nice, chilly, but sunny weather so far. It did rain a little last night, but nothing to really make it muddy or miserable.
By the weekend, the arena should be really nice for some riding. I should drag it as well to level and smooth things off. No word from my farrier about coming to reset the shoe. Typical, though as he is not the best about calling back. Sometimes he just shows up. Could be a bit tricky if he comes and the solar guys are there too.
I have order confirmation on the German boots, but I don't expect them to come for a while. Still, the International shipping fee was very reasonable, so I don't mind too much. I am kind of excited about trying them, though. It really would solve the problem if they work.
