|Our heifer calves at|
the State Fair.
You see last year when we went to the fair we had to borrow a stock trailer to haul our cattle in. However, this year we had our very own stock trailer! Last fall we purchased a used stock trailer. She was a little worn/broken in, but she was ours. I know I sound sentimental but buying a stock trailer is a pretty big purchase for a young farming couple. It kind of gave us a sense of accomplishment.
The week of our wedding our best man asked if he could borrow the trailer to help his sister move her furniture. This is a pretty common way to move friends and family in agriculture communities and it is a whole helluva lot cheaper than a moving van. We agreed and told him to bring it back when he was done. A couple days before the wedding our best man called again and said it would be a few more days because he had gotten a flat tire on the trailer. Not a problem. I was busy planning a wedding.
All along our best man and dear friends had been scheming and when our trailer rolled up the day before the wedding it looked like it had been on a episode of Pimp My Ride.
They stole our old trailer and made it brand new! They had it acid washed so the aluminum now gleams.
And they put all new signage on it for us. I really like all our Pottery Barn dishes, but our "new" trailer was pretty cool.
I guess you could say I am a Rockin' Rural Women. I love make-up, high heels, nice clothes, cattle and stock trailers. Hope you all have a great weekend.
