Now the waiting

He's there! It was a bit touch and go there for a while though!

My loving husband who tries so hard to help out at times, took our ute off to the service station early yesterday morning to fill with Diesel.
Only he then stopped beside a petrol pump and had put about 5 litres of petrol in the thing before he realized what he was doing!!

And then he discovered that the garage had no diesel and was waiting for the delivery truck!! So he drove carefully home and drained the fuel tank of the diesel/petrol mix. It takes a really long time for it to drain out.
Then we had to borrow some diesel from the farm tank so we could go back to Raglan and fill up, with Diesel this time.

Some reluctance from Chief to load, he certainly knew it was no practice run but he travelled really well. First time he's been floated on his own. As a 7 yr old he really is still such a baby about so many things like this.

But he's there and as I was leaving, Jacob was getting ready to go out and ride him. Plans to take him into the bush today were being talked about as well. Perfect!
