"A hug is always the right size" -Winnie the Pooh
From a beautiful evening full of friends, my kiddos, and music in one of my favorite towns in Alaska :) My boys found the key to my heart. They're perfect hiking buddies. They're affectionate but not too needy. They're not loud and don't run away. They follow me and trust me in any situation. There is a fantastic bond you can create with creatures other than humans.
This is one reason why I believe humans should utilize animals over machinery when possible and practical. There is so much more of a connection when a group of your 4 pawed furry friends pull you through a snowy trail instead of a loud snow machine. Riding a creature with a mind of its own on mountain trails instead of a rumbling ATV that rips up the vegetation and soil. And having quiet, intelligent, horned creatures carry camping or climbing gear for you to lighten the load. Of course there is more work you must put into them on an every day basis but it is SO worth it. To have your fuzzy buddy as your working partner instead of a gas guzzling machine is another sort of satisfaction and happiness that has no parallel. If you have working or adventure animals, you know what I mean :)
Support (obviously humane) animal powered projects over high carbon footprint, factory made, machine powered. Lose carbon emissions, gain a friend :) ♡
