Ed and I (plus three dogs, and one darling baby Appaloosa) are home safe and sound from our trip to Montana to pick up our new colt, Smitty. It was a fun but fast trip to Billings--10 hours to get there yesterday, 11 hours to get back today. We got to have dinner with my brother Mark and sister-in-law Gail, who raised Smitty. They had to drive as far as we did, but they got the flat part (from Fargo)--we got to go over the Bitterroots and the Rockies twice.
Ed and the pups are now flat out, asleep, and Smitty is happily munching hay in his new home.
Here are some travelogue photos!
