New Trailer

Mark and I were up at 4:30 am planning a trip to Iowa to purchase a camping trailer. It had started raining during the night and was raining in the morning when we left so Anna was left inside the stall barn. Her udder is still not showing signs of delivery but we are not taking any chances of a foal born in the rain. We made it by a little after 9:00 am where the trailer was but it took quite a while before we actually decided to buy it. We ended up with a Wolf Pup 16BH.
It is a small light weight trailer weighing in just over 3000 pounds and including the hitch and back bumper a total length of 21 feet with living space of 16. The lay out is what we were looking for.
This is a stripped down model with no slide outs but does have a power awning and is solar ready. We forgot to stop for gas on the way home and about 40 miles from home the car started giving us warnings but Mark was sure it would make it to Casey's in Hanna City and it did. It rained the entire time we were up there and all the way home.
We will pick up the trailer hopefully next week. Karin worked horses while we were gone. The rain had stopped here. She agreed with Rhoda and Emily that Tory is going to take a while to be ready for a rider. But Evan was great.
Valiant was also very good.
This afternoon was Braelyn's 6th birthday party.
 Ben and Taunya's family joined us all the way from Texas by the computer.
Her big surprise was a brand new beautiful girly girl bike.

As soon as we got home I had to run up to the barn to move Anna into a clean stall and prepare the other stall for morning, scrubbing out two water buckets, cleaning all the manure and urine out, putting in her morning hay. When I got back to the house there was a message of games at mom's but I was too tired to go. Mark is already in bed and as soon as I hit publish I will be too.
