WOW it hasn't rained yet today
No rain yet today but I do believe it will rain some tonight. I spent part of my afternoon taking a break from work and visiting with Jeanie. We didn't ride today. Her lot is like a bottomless pit so we decided to sit inside, eat tacos and relax. It was great but then I had to go back to work for a few hours.
My mule has realized I'm getting her out every night and giving her feed. She meets me at the gate and I take her to the hitch rail to feed her. I have had Rosie about 2 1/2 years and am just now getting her to nicker to me. I rarely tie her to the hitch rail as she wanders the yard with a halter and lead dragging and never leaves the yard. Today I just wrapped her rope around the hitch rail and left her to eat her grain while I fed the others. She had no clue all she had to do was pull on the rope to move on to the grass. She was pretty upset when she found this out. Missed some good green grass she did.
The attached picture is of Rosie and I TRYING to play polo at the Clark County Mule Festival in Kahoka, Missouri last year. She HATED the ball. How do you like the hat?
