Cool to have a small chariot to go behind one.

Make a beer run on it.

Train it like a hiking pigeon in case you get too drunk.

I've considered it. Seen some of them in harness. Wouldn't get going fast enough to kill you, you get in a bad wreck or they get ornery a hammer to the head would take care of Sassafrass.

Well if you got too drunk, at least you’d have a ride home

And something to screw.




What the hell is a hiking pigeon?

A bird for passing messages for whilst your out and about, as opposed to the ones that only take messages to your home or rookery or coop or whatever.

Mike Tyson had a pigeon on his cartoon series. It was pretty smart too.

They're neat till you forget you had one in your pocket. Unloading for the washing machine gets a little grosser then.

Sassafras and Root Beer would make a neat team.

I'm inspired now.

Could skid out lodgepole for fence rails, wouldn't even need a trailer. Bet you could fit them in a pickup bed.

Five or six. It's pretty common to see two saddle horses in the back of a pickup out here. One guy used to load his saddle mare right in the back of the 1/2 ton with no side racks. She must have ridden that way for 100s of accumulated miles.

I know a man who has some miniature horses, and he was at a local auction bidding on some round bales of hay to feed them with. I told him he was the first person I knew of to feed a bale of hay that was bigger than the animal eating it. Made him mad, I guess because he hasn't spoken to me since.

On the other hand maybe his brother told him that I said he must have more money than sense, because my thought was that miniature horses were about as stupid an idea as there was.

Hahah.

Chit fire.

Fat fingered that one.

Supposed to be homing pigeon.

But i guess, a hiking pigeon would backpack your message to you.

My grandmother came from Poland.
She and her mother were chased out by Cossak mercs. when she was a little girl.
She never got to have a pony.
