Tote That Load
If you have ever taken your donkeys or mules to a show or other event before, you've probably found yourself toting a lot of things around. Here's something that might help ease your burden.
I know when I go to shows I end up hauling hay, tack, blankets, equipment, manure and all kinds of other stuff back and forth. So far I've just done it by hand when I didn't want to go to the trouble of driving my truck back and forth.
But this year I have decided to try something new. I just bought a neat little wheelbarrow that I plan to take with me to Bishop Mule Days. At Bishop Mule Days, my trailer will be parked off in one of the camping lots, and it is quite a little walk to get from there to the donkeys' pens and back. Every day I end up making many trips back and forth between the too, and often times I'm hauling equipment and other stuff along with me. This year I'll be able to just load it in my little wheelbarrow and roll it back and forth. Much easier!
The neat thing about this wheelbarrow is that it folds up pretty small, so it won't take up much space when my trailer is packed for the trip. The wheelbarrow is not a heavy-duty commercial grade one, but it is strong enough that I think it should work quite nicely for my trips away from home. Here are several pictures of it - folded up and unfolded.
These folding wheelbarrows can be purchased from Roundpens-n-More.com. Just go to their website and click on the Trailer Accessories link at the bottom of the list down the left. The wheelbarrow is currently the first item on this page.
