Glad to hear it, so does this mean the little piggies / foot is safe or was this a surgery to remove that which could not be saved?

Neil, that's gonna be one huge barn! You gonna raise elephants in there too?

I guess he didn't have a map to see that Florida isn't exactly on the way to Ohio. LOL

That is great to hear. So what happened to your hand? Did they graft skin from it or something? Either way it's great to hear about the progress. My new saying is that leg wounds heal one step at a time.

No shit! WTF are you going to be doing with that barn? I'm trying to decide whether to build a 20x24 or restore the old tractor barn. Makes my barn decisions look silly.

One hopes it is the correct hand for your favorite activity!

Forgive the missive from a stranger, but I am in awe of your contribution to your fellow man and hope you road to recovery is both swift and painless (or heavily medicated).

Yeah except it would be pretty hard to pay it off unless you charged a hundred bucks or so admission. Plus the ceiling is only 8 feet above the slats. If what I'm doing now don't pay off I will turn it into a double wide finisher. Now it is set up to hold. Abouut 750 sows. 80' x 220'
Dragoon now is the time to build. Building materials are down. Take a look at commodities, inflation is going to hit fast. They think a barn like this size will easily cost 100K more next year
