I'd like to start out by thanking each and every one of you that was there
with us or thinking of us yesterday morning. The salebarn sold for $201,000.00 to Law Motors.. We pushed it about as far
as we should of. So with that said. We are very proud to announce that we will be carrying on Mom and Dads Legacy. Only we
will be up west of Colman a few miles. ( 35 miles straight North of the salebarn). As I was driving home last night( after
going to watch my daughter barrel ra...ce by Larchwood
IA.) I was able to have some quiet time to reflex on all of yesterday's happenings and to which direction we are now heading.
My thoughts of not being able to buy the sale barn property- That was a dream of Dads and Moms- which has filtered down
the generations as we grew to love the business and the customers. The dream is still there, Only now this is our dream and
this dream is going to be in a new location that we have room to grow and expand as we need to. We will have a building that
will be much warmer in the winter, plenty of parking, plenty of room to ride them horses to show them off. a better set up
for our poultry, we'll have hanging gates, the café will have a nice set up, office- well ????. We are open to
any suggestions, comments- good or bad. We do have a sale August 1st. And are hoping to be able to have our Grand opening
sale by Colman by Sept. 19th.
This Morning was a meeting with the county commissioners
in moody county about a conditional use permit to built our salebarn. The meeting was open to the public/ neighbors to address
there concerns. I did have 4 neighbors there. 2 were just concerned about there land/ property because they are avid hunters
and that is what they use there land for. the other 2. Well lets just say, we can call the kettle black. because the one that
was concerned about livestock getting out, a...nd diseases,
while his is always out on the roads in his summer pasture and he is also the one that shot my pig for going up to his place
instead of being a neighbor and calling me to tell me my pig was coming to his place, and than dumping her down the road in
the bull ditch. The other one, WELL, the only thing she could come up with was the nuisance violation that is at the salebarn.
When I reminded her that her motor home was also part of the violation and also that all dads stuff sitting around there that
we are not allowed to move or sale is also part of the violation. Her only comeback was the motor home was licensed. which
in Minnehaha county, it has to be runnable, which a lot of us know that it wasn't because of the blown motor. And if it
were runnable, how come the cameras have it recorded being hooked on to and pulled out of there by a gray/ silver pickup.
And the only other thing they could come up with is there might be diseases floating down the bull ditch on there property.
The Highway maintenance guy was also there. His input/ concern was the extra maintenance/ grading that may need to
I go back in to meet with the county commissioners on Aug. 4th. it will not be open to public. I will find
out than what my restrictions/ conditions that I will have to follow. We have talked about a good fence- chain linked around
the outside to keep any animals that possibly but hopefully never exscapes. about putting in another driveway just north
of mine. I do have my building permit so we can start ground work.
So all in all, I would say it went really well.
Aug. 4th I will have more answers. I do know that if we are going to have this salebarn up and running by Sept.15th, we will
need as much volunteer help as possibly in all areas of getting this up and going. So with that said, Please let Myself,
Ashley or Nick know.
