Wake up! It's 3:15am, or at least try to wake up...we need to leave by 4:00. We have a long drive ahead. First to pick up the filly, and her breeder Ashley, and then to a Futurity Show in Decorah, Iowa.

It was amazing how quiet our filly was. She was the youngest at the show. We think they both did awesome, the judges didn't agree - but that is their problem. We know they are both winners!! and we all had a good experience. The filly is now officially ours, we loaded her up and headed home. It was a long 4 hour ride plus, we got stuck in Ironman traffic. Didn't seem to bother the filly. She still had plenty of energy to get into some mischief once we arrived home, escaping not once but twice into the main pasture. She really wants to be with the herd. Brad fixed the escape route after we got back from trail riding Nemo and Koda, and found little Ms. Mischief the second time.
