Just as I was pulling out of the town or Romeo, ‘Orlando’ asked if I could give him a ride to Manassa, three miles away. He even volunteered to pay the oat bill. I had nothing better to do, so I told him to jump on board.
In Manassa, I extended an invitation for his extended family to jump on board for a ride around the town. After everyone was crammed into the wagon we took off down Main Street, in the middle of the Manassa Day Festivities. After turning off on a side street, we drove about 1/2 mile before pulling over for everyone to meet the team.
What followed was ton’s of treats, a lot of pets, and of course Doc having half the town sit on his back. The pictures tell part of the story.
