The udder kind of mount
There are those naysayers who think a mule is step down from a horse (they're wrong) or who scoff at an unconventional mount. There are those who question FarmWife's decision to embrace a longear over a warmblood, and there are even those who laugh.
Don't laugh at me, and don't laugh at Luna the cow. While I must say that I, Fenway Bartholomule, jump with more enthusiasm and grace, I can't say I do it with more warm fuzzy heartfulness! Luna looks like a loving and beloved animal, and her rider seems a patient, persevering, and kind sort. I wish them both much success. May Luna graze in green pastures and may her human eventually get that horse she hopes for (but still find time for her bovine love).
Ears to you,
