I think I love Prince! :love I've always loved the snoopy, get in your way animals, even though they are a pain sometimes, it gives you a good feeling that they want to be close to you.

He is such a sweetheart. To think that he was in a slaughter pen! He sure slicked out after getting on a good feeding program. He just wants to hang out with us, he is a lovebug!

Looking good, Bay. Soooooon...you will need the door on that room and be able to store feed. No doubt your now spoiled Snoopervisors will want to go inside to inspect food stores! :p

Joe can open doors and gates, and untie knots. That's quite a feat considering he has stubs for front teeth. When we got him at age 7, his front teeth had been kicked in, or that's the story we got. I always used a hackamore on him, couldn't bear the thought of a metal bit coming in contact with those broken teeth. They have just never grown like old horses teeth do.

After a looooong time of STOP, we are back at it again. We have built and hung 2 doors. Robert came over and the 3 of us made the first door. We used a sheet of 3/4” plywood, framed out and reinforced with 2x4’s. We got one hung the first of the week, the other one built and hung yesterday.

The plywood for the doors is left over from a stage we built years ago when we held an Opry on Saturday nights. I have used a lot of that plywood.

I watched videos on YouTube on how to build a wooden sliding door latch. For the most part they were long and boring. I’m like, don’t waste my time with the labor pains, just show me the baby! So I skipped ahead to see the finished product. I found one I liked and took a picture with my phone. I ripped a 1x6 in half, took measurements and cut all my pieces. I have to sand off the sharp edges and round them off. Then I can install them. I snapped a shot of how I laid them out in the back of the mule.

After I get the latches installed, the next step will be to cut 2x6’s to fill the space between rafters at the ends to keep the dust out. Not going to worry about insulation or finishing walls, I just want it closed in and useable.

Dang - ya'll are moving along with that project now that you got started on it again! Doors are important - and latches even more so. Looks like you've got a great latch system. I wanna see it when it's up and working!
