Rana, Doc and Hitch made home safe and sound. Thank goodness. The ferry that takes you across the river to LaCrete forgot to anchor to the dock and when Rana was driving off it started to pull away. The trailer dropped off and on to land, amen! No damage that she could see of.
Dawson Creek was terrible and Rana opted not to run Doc there. If something were to happen to him she wouldn't forgive herself. She has a spot at the CFR and didn't need to run. The slack was to get underway at 1 and did not start until 6. Wacey Hollingworth was fantastic and let Rana run her futurity horse instead. He did awesome for her and they were placing with a 19 second run. Thanks Wace!! I'm pulling for Wacey she only needs $30 and she can fill her permit and buy her card. Common Santa, that's her trusty steed, make it a merry Christmas for her.
Thank you to the Hollingworth's and their hospitality. Rana had a nice time up there.
After Dawson Creek Rana hooked it for home. Morgan Grant Jr rode home with her. He was great company. He was winning 2nd in the steer wrestling!
Nathan, Kassie and I took a quick little trip down to Whitefish. This was the best time before we have to start haying again and of course harvest. Kassie went for a pull behind the boat on a tube with her daddy. She loved it! She really loved her beach time though. We're home and ready to get back to the grind.
