Trucks, Hay, Rain And A Bummer

My how plans are interrupted when least expected.  I was going to take my 3/4 ton truck to get a bale of hay and I was already bummed because it started raining, I hate moving wet round bales of hay.  I have to push them myself as we don't own any equipment.  But that was all put to rest when I found a large fuel leak in my carburetor, flooding out the engine.  Humph!  Now I'm stuck until I can get to the part store and get a new gasket, replace it and hope that is the problem (I'm pretty sure that's it though).  I won't get that all done before the hay place closes, so it looks like I will have to work on it tomorrow after work and drive to get the hay on Saturday.  Oh well, it will work out.  I am specially thankful to have found the leak because the truck was running badly and giving me fits.  Now, at least, I know the source of the problem, for which I am thankful.

Glad you figured out your truck problem....albeit not at the greatest point in time.
If you don't mind me asking, where do you guys get your round bales and what are you paying? We've got plenty of rounds, but they are in my opinion and my goat's opinion, "cattle quality" hay and we're looking for something a little better.

Guess it will all work out, but I understand the aggravation. Incidentally, I got a malware warning on your site, but the music never came on, so maybe that was the problem.

Carolyn, I get our hay from Lakey's in Ava-when I'm desperate. Otherwise I try to buy from local folks I know. Any way you want to get rid of some of that "cattle quality" hay?
