The first to arrive...

Fourteen hours in a car with a 3 year old, a 5 year old, a 70lb dog, and towing a livestock trailer. Why? Well, today was the day to pick up the first of our livestock that has been boarded at three different farms in SC and NC. Our Irish Dexter cow Cherry Blossom and her two week old bull calf got picked up first in SC right along the Georgia boarder. Next, a drive to Hartsville, SC to get our other Irish Dexter cow Riona. Then from there up to NC to pick up the two Mini Donkeys, which are to be a surpise for Neil as a graduation present from the kids and I. It was a long day and a tight squeeze getting all the animals in the two horse trailer. I pulled into the farm just about at midnight. Stayed out in the barn until about 1am to make sure everyone settled in ok. I will have photos up in a few days once we all recover!
