Name: Susan Zone 5 Charley's Girl Too/ HeHaw, HeHaw
Charleen I saw your puppy photo, you made us all want a chiwawa. Now Charley is another subject cute as he is the city just doesn't allow mules in the burbs. Having a mule here is unheard of so every time you start feeding him cookies, you make me giggle out loud.
I'll have my DH take a pic of me feeding them the Cookies. They fight over them and the safest way to feed them is for me to stay outside the pen. Never know when the hooves will fly. You can tell Charley is only for Charley when it comes to cookies. He will lay his ears back. He is telling them, "You better get out of the way, this cookie is mine"
See, how Charley's Ears are laid down? That is a warnng but I kept talking to him and he was o.k. When I'm in that pasture I have to watch them all. sometimes 4 sets of ears can be exciting to watch. I'm not afraid of the ears, it is those fast little hooves that dance around. I have been hit a time or two and it sure can bruise too.
Feed them hay and Love them is all I do now. I used to ride til I fell off one too many times. I found out the taller the critter the farther yo fall. Seems like I can't get anything under 14 hands. They keep the grass in the pasture trimmed. They are just Ornaments. charley can be ridden but not by this old Chicken.
