Moving the sheep was one of the many steps to this move.
Once we arrived with the second truck load we got things unpacked. The next big step to this move was the arrival of the sheep.
Fortunately for John he found a very dependable driver. He was able to get the sheep loaded at our house and deliver them to their new home in Floyd. With the help of our neighbor they got 28 sheep loaded pretty quickly! A text sent to John confirmed they were on their way.
It was about an 8-9 hour trip and they finally arrived about 4:00 that afternoon.
With my son and family only a little an hour away they decided to drive down and welcome the sheep once the truck arrived.
It was a huge relief once we saw the truck come down the driveway. The plan was to have him back into the barn area and open the back of his truck. We were all hoping this would go as planned and believe it or not it did!
As you can hear from the video Margaret cheered once they all jumped off!

3 Men & a Truck!
Many of you are familiar with the moving company that you can hire to help move you.
They provide 3 Men ( 4 if you’re lucky) and the moving truck. They come into your home and in a short time can have your furniture wrapped in plastic & cover with blankets.
The men can load a truck at record speed while keeping your valuables safe. They will drive their truck to your new home and unload your possessions to all the correct rooms.
With family members moving in the last few months they highly recommended this company! Unfortunately in Fryburg we don’t have that luxury but we have the next best thing.
Boxes were packed and furniture wrapped in plastic in preparation for the packing. We rented a Penske truck. When John arrived with it our help had already arrived!
Our 3 Men & a Truck consisted of our Amish neighbors. They arrived right on time and were ready to help!
We knew they would be a great help but didn’t realize what quick work they would make of loading a moving truck!
They are not a custom to the amount of “ stuff” a family can accumulate. They do speak German between themselves and could have very easily been complaining but I would never have known!
With having a couple yard sales we did clean out however we still had a full load! They finished by noon and lunch was provided. Once finished they left in their buggies.
The trip started out early the next morning with 2 drivers taking turns and with the Subaru driven by me! We arrived at the Floyd house mid afternoon and began to unload at least a small portion of it.
Once the truck was unloaded the next day with the help from John & Joe it was returned to the nearby Penske rental.
Knowing we have to do this a couple more times is rather tiring to think about but most of the household items are here.
John however still has many “ treasures” in his work shop that a person can not part with which will be packed next load!
