Last week-end was the start of the pack burro racing season in Colorado. The 1st race was in Georgetown on Saturday and Sunday they raced in Idaho Springs. One race had 84 teams running, I would imagine the other one was about the same. It seems like every year the team count goes up, as more and more people discover this amazing past time which has actually been going on since 1949.
This is Lynn with Pepsi, one of our alumni. Pepsi was adopted in Colorado a couple of years ago, and has been having a great time ever since. He's been to school, played in snow, has his own little girl to play with and is involved in a program where children can write to him and he will correspond with them. We hadn't had an update in awhile on Pepsi, so was glad when Linda said they saw him at the races this week-end and gave him a hug. I think this desert boy is living the dream in Colorado......!!
