Driving into the sunset
We loaded up 'Old Bull' into the old Bedford and I headed off into the sunset, literally, with the old fellow. He behaved like a perfect gentleman. Took notice of everything around him and stood still most of the way. If a cow moves around a lot in the back of the truck or trailer, it makes the driver work harder to keep their vehicle under control. When we arrived at the sale yards, 'Old Bull' became very excited at the pretty 'old ladies' he could see over the fence. He unloaded easily, with a real spring in his step, even though it was a limped spring - hence the reason the poor old fellow had to make the journey. My last sight of him was as he excitedly went down the pen towards the old girls!!
The old Bedford is a dream to drive. Very sturdy, the gears change easily. I just love it. If I had lots of money I would get this beautiful old truck botoxed to within an inch of its life!!
