Morning Commute

My commute is seldom boring, I harness the team around 6:30 a.m., hitch to a vehicle, and head off to work at about 4 miles per hour. Here, gridlock is defined by a white-tailed deer running across the road at the same time my friend's tractor is moving feed for his dairy cows. As you can see, the view is amazing, the air is clean, the sound of trace chains rattling along puts my mind at ease. The College is about 4 miles away where our students are preparing breakfast and getting organized for the work of the day--work that will include these two horses.

Boy that is some traffic...a deer and a tractor! Life can be dangerous with all that traffic. Be sure to wear your seat belt (click or ticket!) and make sure the horses have already had their morning coffee and you know they are ready to work by the time you get to the college. Be well and be safe.
