    aww! It's so beautiful!

    *cries* Oh you are so lucky! I can never get anything done. My husband is disabled, and I don't know what the heck I am doing. I need a handy man to teach me some tricks. Or maybe I'll just kidnap one of you guys for a couple of weeks to show me the ropes. *laughs*

    That was a great blessing. You do have a wonderful family - give them all extra hugs today! Those are really nice stalls.

    Nice- our stalls are the same I always wondered if they were a bit small- guess not!
    We have a 8x8 kidding stall- then we move them over to the smaller stalls after they have kidded.

    8X8 seems like a waste of space for a nigerian to me so thats why they are "smaller"

    I only like the 8x8 so I can be in there to assist and have some room to work around the doe and kids
    but yea 4x6 is enough room for momma and kids to share :)
