clover woke me up at 5am-ish to go out. normally, on a sunday, this can be very annoying. today, however, i was thrilled she got me up because when i looked out in the paddock i saw a little dark shadow hovering around louise:
i was so surprised. i had just given louise a bath yesterday and determined she was still a ways away. but she had other plans.
i have been enamored with mules since i was a child. i always thought i would eventually get myself a saddle mule. it was one of the things on my list for when i got my own little farm. and the day has arrived. three dog farm has its first mule on the ground!
