Hay Drive Update!


So it’s been awhile since i’ve sent out an update on the hay drive. To be honest things have been a little slow lately but now we are picking up steam again and getting ready to send out more hay! So far we have sent out 6 semi loads of hay. We have another load of hay paid for and that one will be heading out soon and we have another load of hay to go that we are fundraising for right now. Speaking of fundraising… Last night was the Hay Drive Fundraiser at AJ Bombers in Madison. I don’t have totals yet but I do want to say THANK YOU!  times a million for coming out and supporting our efforts to everyone who was able to make it. I wish I had more photos but I realized when I looked at them today that I must have had a greasy fingerprint on my phone’s camera. Can’t imagine how that got there!

My cousins and me in a cheese curd coma. They were soooo good!


If you weren’t able to make our shindig last night you can still help and it won’t even cost you a penny. I entered the American Family Insurance “Go Get Your Dream” Contest. My dream? To send more hay south. While I would love to take a dream trip to Belize, pay off more bills, finish remodeling our house or have a down payment on a better farm, my biggest wish right now is to make a difference to a few more farmers and ranchers. You can click on the link below to take you to the voting page for my dream. Then, and this part is really important, please share the link and ask your friends to vote as well. I know people are always posting this or that about winning this or that but I really hope that you will see the value of helping me achieve my dream.


P.S. I know that having to register to vote is a bit of a pain in the butt, but really, it’s worth it.

    Way to go Carrie! You didn’t by any chance happen to see a little short guy about 2ft tall with a pointy hat there did you? LOL By the way those burgers looked delicious! I hope you are meeting your goal.
