Space is a villager who lives in the southeastern part of the country. He wants to build a stable for his animals before bitter winter kicks in soon. The stable that you see in the background of the picture is the current one, and it is not appropriate for the animals, according to him.

“It snows so much in our village and our region is known for the longest and coldest winters that go up to seven months covered in snow. So, my animals cannot stay in such cold. Also, because of the bitter winters, hungry wolves come down searching for food themselves and in many occasions they have grabbed our neighbors’ goats. I don’t want this to happen to mine,” said Space.

Space is a father of ten children who for the past almost twenty years have been operating his livestock activity. He is happy he has this because it has been the only source of income for his large family.
