Got Wonka (the two year old mule) saddled him and did ground work including mounting from the fence too bad we didn't ride anyway I could have used the 2 o4 3 steps towards the shortest ride award. Then worked on desensitizing to fly spray and then bridled him. All of it non events. He's coming along nicely. Then caught& haltered the entire herd of 14 and they got to stand tied for a couple of hours waiting on the vet to come vaccinate. Everyone did great except Willy who has always been nervous around Doc. I am now sporting some lovely rope burns, but at least it is my left hand. Jaime came and picked me up (we were late she got lost trying to find my house) and we rode at Rockford Lake SRA with some new PRR riders. Had a great time. I am ready for bed tonight though.
I would HOPE you were finally ready for bed!! You had a BIG, busy day. Plus, geez, I got home and texted you that I'd made it at quarter after 11 and was in bed already when you texted me back... at quart to 12! rofl Hope you slept well.

This mule should have been name PePe Le Pew like the cartoon character, her lope is sort of a dun ta dun ta dun along.
