we made it! we are here in our new town, finally. we made the last big trip yesterday… actually we pulled in about 3:30 this morning and proceeded to sack out! poor coach had to get up and be at work this morning by 9. when he got home this afternoon he napped for about 4 hours… bless his heart.
yesterday was a booger.we were bringing the horse to his new home on the coolest ranch. but that didn’t happen. we got back to austin at 3:30 in the afternoon… in the midst of friday afternoon rush hour traffic… and ROT rally didn’t help either. we rushed to the vet clinic and made it just in time… we had to pick up the pony’s certificate showing he is free of some funky disease and the traveling tranquilizer. once that was done, we rode over to see the pony and get him loaded up… but… the tires on the trailer were no good. it was after 6pm by that time… so the pony stayed behind for one more week… we will go back and get him next weekend… in the meantime, a friend is feeding him and making sure he’s well cared for.
during this move, murphy (of murphy’s law fame) rode with us the entire friggin time. we kept trying to dump him off in the various little towns we went through but he wasn’t having that. there were flat tires, wiring on trailers that had to be completely replaced, and etc. but in the end, we made it… all in one piece with no major problems.
i have some photos to share and will get to that in the next few days… but for now, i’m resting and unpacking and resting and trying to figure out what i’m supposed to do next…
