This week I left for Boston on Wednesday and time just slipped away, so all I have are butt pics. Tails are attached.
Rufus the donkey is not wearing a hat on his butt. That is a buddy seat.
The two bells show that this mule can pack and ride. If there was a third bell, that would add driving to his skill list.
My what a lovely tail on that big butt. Tulip has some draft blood.
Packed that butt.
Another nice mule butt. The mules and donkey’s typically have britchings around their butts because saddles tend to slip around more. The britching plus a breast collar can help stabilize the saddle.
Lacey had a little trouble with her tail. Thank-you Sandy for the picture!
So, I lost Carson’s butt (pic) somewhere. I rode him and ponied Lacey to give Carson practice hauling someone’s butt up the mountain (Lacey and well, me, too!).
The whole reason we were there was to clear Spruce Trail for another trail crew that will began working Wednesday . We moved a lot of down wood, and checked the spring (going good!). This was my favorite tree.
And the sign is still standing–even if a corner is missing.
Richard and Cheryl contemplating the cut. We were in the wilderness, so that means hand tools all the way.
A little photo bomb butt.
Gratuitous Fjord butt. Mojo did not go on this trip! Note the dun stripe right down his tail!
Happy Friday! Not sure if I will be around a computer to reply to any one!
Here's the skinny: I have a thing for horses. They make sense to me. I have a small horse training business (it's a "boutique" training business, not because it's super fancy, but because the horses get a lot of personal attention). I also go by Dr. Wilber, and teach biology full-time at a Central New Mexico Community college.
