I can't say I can argue with your thought here. But I can share a few pics from us a few weeks ago packing in an elk camp. I passed the 50 mark 4 yrs ago, the hoses and mules get us where we need to be for scenic walks and a few elk too.

Jeff,

Indeed! That's the way to do it.

There a couple added (but not openly discussed) benefits to 4 legged transportation, mainly. that transportation is non -polluting other than depositing natural fertilizer and most equines are good company or at least better than my ex-wife.

Re: I got my arse kicked ...

Jeff,

Is that a Decker pack saddle on that pinto/paint behind the black hat and striped shirt?

I've just finished making 2 Decker types for my goats.

Horses and I don't get along when things get serious. Been bucked off of every steed that I was on that bucked.

Nice packs too. Someone knows what they're doing.

Yep, there were a couple deckers on this trip, one brand new one that is a custom, but a decker design.

Getting a little air time kinda goes with the sport Roy, but man it hurts worse than it use to. I been in the dirt twice in the last year. I fixed the problem with a new horse..

Re: I got my arse kicked ...

If you ever rode, you got tossed somewhere along the line. Goes with the territory. Air time is fine, it's the sudden impact that hurts.....

I had a quarter horse years ago that rode fine but when you stopped, he wanted to roll over (with you in the saddle, like right now). He went to the auction....

My favorite mount is a Percheron. Lots of power but gentle and plenty of carrying capacity and very sure footed. No saddle needed, like sitting on a large barrel.

Horses have the attention span of an infant...basically none and I'm a 'Gee and Haw' person anyway so Percherons and plough reining are ideal for me.

My wife drives, she's an excellent teamster. Me, I can't get them to stay on the road, I drive like a drunken sailor walks.....lol

Horses are great, probably why we always have 4 or 5 around.

Altitude is a HUGE factor as well as the mental realization that maybe your work out is not what you thought it was? For instance ever try P90X OMG killer, made me think of airborne school, when I went I was in my prime, best shape I have ever been in! One of the black hats looked down at me in the pit ans said " you ant used to being smoked are you" I just grinned.
