If I make the crupper fit, then the britching doesn't. If I make the britching fit, then the crupper is too short.
I finally took the brow-band off altogether because it was too tight for Ben's wide brow and oh-so-delicate and dainty ears. We wouldn't want to pinch the ears.
But it is good enough for a little jaunt and I was determined to take my new driving donkey out for a ride before the vet comes on Thursday to work on his foot. The canker is not yet making him lame and exercise is good for the foot so there is no reason I can think of not to. I have no idea when or if he will be driving again so I was, by God, gonna take him out.
I know the cart needs a paint job.
I know I forgot to run the lines through the saddle rings.
I know the harness isn't quite right.
And I know that Ben is an awfully nice, well-behaved donkey. So good that we just went out and down the road and drove into the sunset.
Care to join us for a moment?
