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.

|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.

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.
