On the northern edge of Burns, I ran the rig over the weight scales on a closed weigh station. The horses weighed in about where I thought they would, but the wagon and trailer were a bit heavier than I thought. Here are the weights:
Doc and Bill Combined = 3850 lbs
Bob alone = 1950 lbs
Fully loaded Wagon = 4300 lbs
Partially loaded trailer = 3200 lbs
Note - When I leave Burns for the desert on Sunday, the combined weight of the wagon and trailer will increase by about 1200 lbs as I take on a full load of water, hay and grain.
A couple of hours after lunch, I pulled into Toni and Pedroís family ranch, on the north side of Burns. This is the first time this trip that the lads have had a large acreage to wander around on and eat tons of sweet, green grass. Since turning them loose, Iíve more than once been witness to the boys kicking up their heals and doing a little buck-snort.
