Long Interesting ride at Sagehen-pictures

Interesting story: On our trail ride today, we came to a section where Lass could get through but I could not. It was steep on one side, too densely vegitated on the other, and when I went to turn her, she ended up thinking I wanted her to go downhill! This is nearly a completely vertical drop. So I go with it. Once in the bottom she really got agitated wanting out, and we ended up climbing out the other side of this land bowl...she was almost on her knees crawling out, and as we reached the top I though for sure we'd go over backwards! She managed to CRAWL out with me on her! I couldn't believe it. I walked her a ways on foot to make sure she was ok....she seemed perfectly fine. I hope she doesn't get sore. That was quite the feat....I certainly wasn't trying to do acrobatics! She's such a good, trustworthy donkey!

Anyway, here are some pictures from today:

Not really certain why Lass thought she should park out like this...it was really muddy where we were standing, maybe she was trying to avoid it haha!!

good lookin donk. There are quite a few mammoths around here. But none as dark as she is.
I know a fella with a mammoth jack, he's about her size. Still got a lil growing to do. Much lighter coloration, he's turned out to be mean as a snake. I think the fella is going to get him cut. Bred him a couple of times.
Nice view of the river.
