It is officially a new milestone in Teamdonk history. Today’s drive marked a little over 705 miles!
The first video is a four minute trip down a quarter mile hill.
Here we go. http://youtu.be/EBIvQVvp1UM
The second video is a nice trotting session with these guys and a sudden surprise I was able to capture.
The team had to perform a dock before they could rest. At the top of the hill we drove past our Rest & Relaxing point so they could back into it, which meant both had to back but Hank had to back and Haw Over at the same time. I saw Merlin pushing him over, giving him that little extra shove he need to move over.
Coming home we cut thru the hay field and stopped for a breather above the pond where they could look across the Camas Prairie. The dark green field on the other side of the pond is our Oat Hay we raise for a local cattleman. That will make a fun driving field after that hay is cut and bailed.
Today’s Stats: Drove 2 hours and 27 minutes 5.88 miles. At 6:30 this morning it was 56 degrees but at 11 it was a scorching 82 degrees with a hot wind and thunder heads accumulating. More storms are forecasted tonight. Our maximum speed was 7.8 mph with an average of 3.1.
