    My new tractor and run are done![​IMG] Please check it out on my page and tell me what you think. I think that DH outdid himself![​IMG]
    I forgot to post that the tractor is insulated for the winters we get here in NY. We are newbies at this and have quickly become addicts. The tractor is everything but bear proof (we have a solution for that, too!). My girls love being in their new home and love their run even more.[​IMG] They even yell at me through the open door screen to hurry up so they can come out and play! Thanks to all of you BYCers for sharing your pics of your tractors, feeders and waterers![​IMG] Thanks to Neil G and his nipples and advice. Please, give me feedback as I want to build another one for next year!!![​IMG]

    It is 4x8 and 3 ft high on one side and 4 ft high on the other side. It is roomy for the girls right now. I am waiting for them to grow up so I can see how much room they really have. I will probably have to have the run available to them during the winter so they can stretch out.
