Breaking News

R, my youngest human, turned four yesterday. You know what that means, right? Time to start her under saddle!

I plan to get her one of these:

She can use it to carry hay, grain, apples, carrots, plums, pop tarts, and soft dandy brushes (I'm thin-skinned). She will be expressly prohibited from carrying my least favorite things: syringes, sticky salves, and loose ring French link snaffles. 

I can already see a bright new future ahead—with young R. being old enough to bear a burden but too young to go to school, she can pass each day in a frenzy of treat-porting activity! We shall have such fun! 

Yours expectantly, 


  1. Um, Fenway, unless you want R to break down early, you'll want to wait a few more years. Humans mature notoriously slow, and that's just their physical development. Best to limit her to treat hauling in small, lightweight containers for a while longer...


Thanks in Advance for Your Mulish Opinion!
