The second horse we picked up out of Montana and she did great. Loaded and hauled really well and was a welcome sight to the now snow blasted MN horse. All in all we spent 6 days in the truck, covered 7 states, over 3000 miles and 45 total hours of driving time. I am glad to be back home and to have these two with their new owners.
Sort of a training trip for all the hauling i will be doing here in a few weeks. Still have a few big hauls that i need to pick up and am going to be hauling all over CO this weekend. I don't mind it actually, i have spent alot of time on the road in my life so why not start making money to do it.
Not more than a week ago we also lost our old friend Gus, he was my cat of over 16 years. I grew up with him and no matter where my life took me, i always had him. He too is very missed, but i do take comfort in the fact that he was ready to go and i was able to say goodbye to him.
It seems as though things are starting to come together, the horses are all looking great and we are having a pretty easy time of it this spring. Well so to speak. Let's hope the good luck carries on into April and both the rescue and the ranch are able to live long and prosper into the future. Here's to hoping that all of my friends and family have a great month ahead and all the luck in the world for a good foaling and calving season, as well as getting our grasses to start to come in fast and healthy. I can hope that everyones horses stay fat and healthy and i will be doing all that i can in the next month to help out where ever i can. Here's to April!
