Hay delivery! That's my World for Tuesday, January 27, 2009












Very often, while driving from the desert floor up to the mountains, where our horses are boarded, I encounter a hay truck. It usually is NOT an 18 wheeler hay truck, like this one, but usually a large truck or pickup full of hay. They have difficulty going up the grade from sea level to over 4,000 feet. The "highway" is actually a two-lane, VERY curvy road, with blind curves. There are only a few turnouts for them and once they stop, they lose their momentum. This hay company from Blythe delivers hay to the lady who boards our horses. So far, in the 1 1/2 years we've been there, we haven't seen a hay delivery, until last Monday, which was a holiday for me. I knew he was there because the front gate was open and hay was scattered all about! I ran and grabbed my camera and took these photos! Everyone was so busy stacking the hay, they didn't even notice me! That's my world! For more That's My World photos, please visit: http://showyourworld.blogspot.com/

I'm glad it's not my job to drive a big truck up a narrow windy road.

Hay, hay, make a wish and look away. We used to say that when I was a kid when we saw a hay truck on the road. The trick was not to look back and see it again, or you wouldn't get your wish. - Margy

With our drought I could use a truckload of hay!

The coolest thing about this meme is that people share things I've never seen. I think it's great! I've never seen hay delivered.
