Guy's baby colt

the New "hay rack" semi & trailer

a new way to atack hay bales-8 at a time

Left North Dakota on Saturday morning and headed to Detroit Lakes,MN for a couple of days to visit family(Aunts, Sisters,Cousins,even 2nd. & 3rd cousins now, Nephews) This is the area Dave grew up in and lots of the family are still around here so got to visit all and eat,eat,eat. It's a family tradition, I think to feed us whereever we go. Had a real nice dinner out with Don & Colleen & their son Guy at a place called Stone Hearth, if you get up there,go. great food and a really nice view of the lake. Dave got a chance to go back in time, sort of, and do some haying, but that's not like is was either. They make small bales to sell but now the baler kicks out 8 bales at a time and Guy follows with a bobcat that has an attachment that picks up all 8 bales and loads them right on a semi-flatbed(Not like out old hay wagons at all) So in 2 1\2 hours or so they baled & loaded on the truck for delivery 5-6 acres and had over 600 bales of hay loaded. I got a few pictures of this and of Guy's new baby colt(he's from championship lines)and cute. Also got to meet my 3rd cousin, Amy & Jason's daughter-what a cutie and she sure enjoyed playing with our dogs. Hope they had a good time at the fair. Then headed back to Camp Seegebarth in Hinckley, Mn(our summer camp) What great relatives we have, they set us up with a great rv site and even a garden by our trailer. It has been a fantastic year and I can't wait to see more but it sure is good to be settled for awhile and Dave wants to get busy and do the repairs on the trailer . More later
