"I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

Amie is Home

Yesterday was quite a day! Aaron works for the city picking up the garbage on Wednesday mornings. He was also on call (Wed is usually a day off, from 6 am to 6 pm) until 11. The plan was to be ready to go when he got off at 11am. Where were we going. To pick up Sweet Amie.
The strip (dorsel strip) a Common thing in Fjords. All the way down the mane to the top of the tail. I am going trim up her mane soon, it should be standing up (think mohawk for a horse)

Grandma came down so we could use the truck. Then while Aaron and I drove the hour and 1/2 northwest to get her, she played with the kids. From what I was told, they made and flew kites, cleaned up their room and had a wonderful time.

Checking out the neighbors horses.

That's the spot!
While picker her up, loading ect went smoothly, the traffic was a pill. On the way up, we got stuck behind a very slow moving truck that paints the lines on the road. 8 miles an hour....for over 30 mins! 
On the way home...we were detoured for road work. Another hours time extra. We also drove threw a rather large hail storm that Amie did not like. We stopped for a potty/coffee/grain break and she settled right back down.
checking out the canoe
After we got home, her unloaded, trailer parked and covered back up, it was after 5 by the time we got back home and actually in the house for a few. A lady came at about 6:30ish (I didnt look at the clock) to pick up a table. Dinner was breakfast burritos. Needless to say, we had to reschedule this weeks music lessons. There is a reason we did this yesterday and not Friday. Aaron is working!
love her ears! :)
She is settling in well and like I suspected, follows us around like a big over grown puppy.  She rather enjoys sniffing the chickens, which in turns startles them (chickens). She is happily munching grass and enjoying a treat when we go out.
