Express Clydesdales in Yukon Oklahoma and Suzie got a major horsey fix!

Where are we today?
       Another good night at the Flying J in Joplin Missouri. Up early a few walkabouts the parking lot and store in the dark. Just waiting for the sunrise and drizzle to let up a bit. But we were on the toad, by 8 am, kinda nice when we are all set to go just turn the key and we are on the road again.
the roads are pretty quiet today,
good travelling
         Not a lot of traffic only light rain again for a couple hours and no wind, was a another good travel day..
       We stopped at the Flying J in Oklahoma City to fuel our coach still only $1.86 a gallon, wow gotta love it! While here we made a quick lunch and headed down the road a few miles to Yukon to check out   Express Clydsdales Yukon Oklahoma  Now if you click on the link there you can read a ton of information about them. They travel all over north America to competitions, shows and parades. Calgary Stampede, Royal Winter fair in Toronto, London Ontario, even Milton Ontario. Indiana, Colorado , California, Utah,  Nebraska just to name a few.
wonderful barn and stables
        This young lady is grooming this one it is amazing to see the size on these animals!
Their Hoofs are amazing too
          Now Suzie got a doggie and a HUGE horsey fix today.
         Upstairs a few trophys, some pictures and models on display.
        They have a few trailers here on the property to transport these Clydesdales to various areas around north America.
          An hour or so here then we headed down the road about 15 miles to park over night at the Walmart in El Reno Oklahoma. Got here early but wanted a change of scenery and pick up a few things at Walmart too.
pretty quiet here and lotsa room 
        Did a few minor repairs here, Re glued a window thermometer, checked tail lights on the car ( no luck with that issue). replaced a nose piece on Suzie glasses and lubed our roof antenna, think it is time for a new one!
       Then time for supper, so why not a rotisserie chicken from Walmart?  And I can add to our salad and we good to go, we do love our chicken if you have not figured that out yet. Not bad here for $4.98 (not as good as the Weber Q) but we will get a few meals out of it.
Sure hit the spot again
        This was a fun travel day at a nice pace, got to see the Clydesdales and enjoy some wonderful weather  too. Inside our coach this afternoon with the windows open 85 f, yep gotta love it!
         Bonus here too We have free Hi speed wifi here as well.
245 miles today
        Glad you stopped by and really hope you had a wonderful day as well.
        oh by the way "HAPPY HALLOWEEN"
        A don't forget to set you clock back an hour tonight, if that applies to your area.

  3. It would be fun to spend a little time around the Clydesdale horses. We've seen them at quite a few events. Fuel at $1.86 a gallon is fantastic. We haven't quite seen it that low but close.

    Thank you for mentioning the gas prices in Joplin, if we had not known we might have filled up sooner.

  6. I have a whole new appreciation for horses now, instead of a distant curiosity/fear, ever since my first horseback riding experience last July. Not as big as the Clydesdales but huge all the same. They are beautiful! The weather temp has us jealous of course.....we are looking forward to our forecast 18 & 19C here this coming week. ;)

  8. Those are magnificent horses and I always enjoy seeing them pulling the beer wagon in Budweiser commercials around Christmas. Some day I hope to take an RV trip where I'm not on a mission to get somewhere and will be willing to stop along the way for visits like this.
