John found some more areas that needed to be debulked of beans yesterday afternoon, so the donkeys didn't get to go out. But we've got our fingers crossed for today. I'm wondering how much fun it will be to get them back in their pens if they do get to go out........!!! LOL
Here is a nice video when people and donkeys took a side trip to the Grand Canyon on their way to California to a race sponsored by the California Breakfast Burritos in Ridgecrest, CA. Don't want to brag, BUT, Muzzy and Lynn finished 1st in the 26 miles race out there and Benji and his person team mate Patrick won the 10 mile race. Going down into the Grand Canyon
The California Breakfast Burritos is an organization of people in CA sharing their love of pack burro racing with others and are involved in helping non-profits. This year we were the recipients of their generosity, which was very much appreciated. Hopefully in the years to come, there will be pack burro racing in many states, rather than just Colorado. Arizona has had 2 races, California one, N.M. hasn't had a race yet, but people have hauled their donkeys to some of the other states and they would like to have races at home. The states will have to rely on their own states in the future and not expect runners to haul 100s of miles to run. In the last few years pack burro racing has really exploded, hopefully it will continue to grow and bring lots of new faces into the sport.
This is Big Gus showing off his latest renovation of his pen. He seems pretty proud of the hole he dug. We've been calling it an "ass hole".................! LOL Unfortunately he isn't the only digger we have. Since they have been in their pens so long, quite a few of them have learned all sorts of new skills, that aren't appreciated by humans.
