You have many great memories of BJ :hugs

How long are those boards and what do you plan to put on them? I fear a 1x will sag badly without a center support
They are just under 5' long at 58". The closets at son's house has these same bracket/shelf things. And I have the shelves piled to the ceilings with boxes (still there). I'll check their distance between brackets, they are not sagging. Yet.

@Bruce you are right, I have many memories of BJ. The picture of him that you liked so much is the wallpaper on my phone. Every time I touch the screen, there he is. Sitting at the table, closing on the farm, I laid my phone on the table. I touched the screen frequently just to make it feel like he was there. That picture is my favorite.

Those eyes!

That is the KEY word. 3/4" is pretty thin for shelves that long. Even if you put only light stuff on them I'll bet they sag in the middle over time just from the weight of the shelf, especially since you have no ledger board on the wall at the back. Yes it will take some time but why not kill that problem before it exists? Ledger board or a mid shelf support would be my plan. Then you can put most anything on them without a problem.

The past two nights coyotes, lots of them, have been way too close for comfort. Sheba and Sentry are in the ewes night pen, next to Ringo and Number One.

Copper is in the back, behind the house a ways. Trip was going to be his guardian but I had to put my boy down July 5, due to advanced cancer. So Cooper has no guardian and I’m very concerned. Only thing I can think of is to put Cooper and Dessa in the front yard fence with Carson.

I called @Mike CHS and Terrsa to ask if they thought Cooper would follow me with a can of feed and they said yes. So I prepared. I shut the ewes and Anatolians out of their night pen, then opened driveway gate and extended it with a half hog panel. I put feed in a pan in the front yard, put Carson in the house.

Then, with feed in a coffee can, I think even color blind animals can see that RED coffee can, I went to get Cooper and Dessa. I even fed Ringo so he’d be distracted by eating, rather than sizing up the newcomer for a fight.

I opened the gate, shook can, sheep! Sheep! Sheep! Softly talking and rattling can. And through the gate! Mission accomplished!

Not so fast. The ewes heard all the commotion and came running. Before I could let them in their pen, I had to put their driveway gate back. Then I had to reward them with some feed. Cooper watched all this intently. Bodacious BABES!! Ringo noticed the new guy and yelled at him, something like, “ MINE!! ALL MIME! Cooper responded by dropping his penis and shaking it at the ewes. “Ladies! LOOK at THIS! “

Copper and Ringo hurled insults at each other, having a penis contest, across the driveway from each other. BAA!!! BAA!! Shake, shake, shake the weenie! BAA!!! BAA!!

I was putting half hog panels up to keep Cooper from learning how to climb steps and poop/pee all over the porch, Carson tried to help. More like Carson tried to make himself invisible. “NO! Ewe are wrong! I’m a DOG!” And he dived under the porch.

Ok, got the porch secured from a Randy ram, time to get something to eat. Sat down with a bowl of cereal and heard ominous crunchy sounds. Ran out on the porch and started yelling.
“NO! You stupid ram! Stop that! You SOB and fill in the blanks, stream of cuss words.

Copper was bashing the underskirting of the double wide in his attempts to show off his superior BIG DADDY RAM attributes, stopped only to shake his weenie at the girls who were totally unimpressed.

You IDIOT! I’m trying to save you from being a coyote feast! DONT BEAT UP MY HOUSE! Visions of a ram bashing in the underskirting and running amok under the house weren’t pretty and all of them were a carnage of busted water pipes, ripped loose HVAC duct work and a huge credit card bill for repairing all of it. STUPID! @%#€¥*} RAM!

I got another half a hog panel, too short, went on a scrounging walk about in search of a scrap of anything and got a small piece of cow panel. Tied it all together with clips and hay string. Done. Maybe. Unless Cooper has more showing off to do, “Hey y’all!! WATCH THIS” as he as he strikes a match and burns the house down……. To be continued, I’m pretty sure.

Porch step protector, underskirting protection which Ding Dong with the famous weenie is rubbing on now.

As of right now, 5 ewes are staring intently at the new Hottie across the driveway. Cooper is staring back at them.

Y'all don't be surprised by what I post, animals do what they do. :he It is blatantly obvious that they have not watched Disney cartoon movies. :lol:
