HAVE YOU tried bamboo, yet?






I wanted a new lead rope so that Dalton and I could roam the neighborhood in our best… so while I was at the local tack/feed store, I felt around all the lead ropes and purchased this one.

I bought that particular lead rope because it was soft.  I don’t like the poly lead ropes.  I prefer cotton – or so I thought.

What I learned was that I actually prefer BAMBOO.

Who knew?!

This is a bamboo lead rope.

IT WASN’T UNTIL I GOT IT HOME THAT I REALIZED IT WAS BAMBOO.

Usually, I go by feel.  If the lead rope feels soft (and is the right color), I purchase.  So that is how I picked this one.  It felt really nice, and it has a nice color.  (Red is my fav color…).

Once I unwrapped it, I also noticed how light and airy it felt.  Hmmmm.  This was different from a regular cotton leadrope…

So, I read the label.

Bamboo!

Bamboo!

I LIKE BAMBOO PRODUCTS!

I like bamboo products, but they are usually too expensive for my pocketbook.  Well, not today!  This lead rope was the same price as all of the other lead ropes.  Under $20.

And, bamboo, lasts longer, won’t invite rot or mold and washes up great!

I’m really, really happy with the weight, the feel and the performance of this lead rope.  That made me look at other products from this company.  They also make rope halters (I prefer leather) and reins!

Lookey who is wearing a halter!!


Tuesday, March 16th, 2021 | Filed under Updates




So the new donkey jennys (Ethel Merdonk and Princess Buttercup Pebbles) came here unhandled.  They learned to take cookies fairly easily, of course…  but wearing a halter was another story.

Cookie/halter training started last week.

First they get a cookie if they touch the halter with their nose.  Then they get a cookie if they let the halter go over their nose.  Then they get a cookie if they let the halter loop over their nose and they don’t move.  Then they get a cookie if I can throw the rope-end over their necks… then they get a HUGE ATTA GIRL and a cookie if they stand still for me to tie it.

Well, today was HUGE ATTA GIRL day.  Both ladies allowed me to put on their halters and tie them.  They actually wore the halters for a few minutes and neither one shook their heads or reacted, although Ethel did sniff the halter on Princess.

Next lessons, picking up feet.  The farrier comes March 30th, so we have a lot to accomplished!

PICS AT THE END OF THE SESSION TODAY!

Ethel Merdonk. She was looking for her cookie. The farrier comes on March 30th, so we have a lot to accomplish. She needs her feet trimmed.

Ethel sniffs Princess’ halter. The Pony King Rocky Balboa and Sir Dalton look on from the next paddock. You can see my hands at the bottom of the frame.

Two very good girls!

Mo and Missy Miss look on. They want cookies, too. Interest is high.

Who could resist those faces?! Of course they got cookies, too.
