Meet "Mo"!

Today Tim and I got up at 5:30 a.m. and traveled to upstate New York to adopt this wonderful tempered ram. His previous owner recently passed and her husband is overwhelmed with the many sheep they have. His dad said his goodbyes which was sad...
 We loaded him up into our Jeep Wrangler which was totally unexpected because the brakes went on our truck yesterday and is now in the shop being repaired. Our journey was quite interesting and from time to time he would come up front and say hi!
He never once laid down and it was a 3 hour drive. He looked out the window, moved around but was very calm like he had done this before, hhhmmm...
When finally arrived, it was now time to get him out. Jeeps are not the easiest thing to unload a ram or get one into for that matter, but a little persuasion and he jumped right out. He is leash trained so it was rather uneventful, but will I ever get that smell out the Jeep??!!
So after stretching his legs, he had a good meal, some water, a worming, a hoof trim and he was ready to go.
His name is "Mocha Expresso Swirl" but we'll call him "Mo".
We decided to give him a day to get grounded before he begins to make a legacy for our farm...
