Bunkzilla - The Move!

So.  Now, we had to somehow move this beast from the garage where it was built, all the way through the north pasture, up the hill to the gate, into the south pasture, and back down the hill to the final destination.

It took several phases to ease it out of the garage and get it set so that Dale could stick the forks under it, but finally, it was underway.  I walked on ahead, ready to take some candids when it fell off the forks, and/or open the gate.  As it was, Dale expertly carted it over the hills and thru the valleys until he made the gate.  Then, it was all downhill from there.  Once in place, we went back to the barn for two bales of hay, came back, and loaded it up.  A small glitch - the door slides the wrong way for the placement of Bunkzilla on the downhill side of a hill - was temporarily fixed with a scrap block of wood.  A more permanent fix is already engineered and will eventually be implemented.  The tarp is a temporary fix as well, until the roofing is ordered and installed.

This morning, Ruffie and Danny stood in front of it munching away.  Success!!
