Hard work

After seeing this, I am feeling incredibly lazy and pampered.

Some face for a 12-year-old.

Great photo.

When Hairy Left Sallie

Yes, Sallie has been roached. What a wonderful big old mule!

Maneless mule

Mules and ponies in coal mines were shaved all over to keep them from collecting coal dust. Note the short stubbly coat and total lack of mane.
