What's Wrong with this Picture?

We're having a new barn built. To do this, we need to move the existing barn. Which means we need to provide shelter for the sheeple in the interim. Brilliant idea . . . a loafing shed which will be moved to a permanent location later. It took us only an hour 35 minutes to get the frame up. . . and that included revising it once we realized that the side panels had been reversed. ("When it says "right side", does that mean from the inside of the barn or looking into it?")

There is a lot of moisture in the field and yesterday, in the first hour of the project, the bobcat got stuck. It was determined that a different piece of equipment would be needed, so that ended the first day. Today, the larger piece of equipment arrived (Bobcat? Tractor? Excavator? I really don't know the difference). Anyway, things are progressing well and the diligent crew worked until sundown to get as much done as possible.

The sheep (after a World Federation of Sheep Wrestling match, in which the sheep nearly won) were placed in their new pasture, in the area of the loafing shed. Interesting, how they know, even though it had no walls, that it was to be one of their new structures. The birds are totally confused.
