Today it was Luc’s turn on the Pacific Gig and he was his spectacular driving self.
The American Donkey and Mule Society have several great driving programs in place for donkeys. Here are Luc’s lists of ADMS awards: In February 2004 Luc was honored with the Versatility Hall of Fame Award, to go along with that Luc is currently working towards his 9th Honor Roll, which adds up to nearly 2,000 accomplishments! He has been shown in fairs, rodeos and parades in Montana, Oregon and Idaho. Luc won his Supreme Driving Program Award May 26th, 2008.
Luc is such an awesome driving donkey, I just don’t know if they come much better! It’s been too long since it was just Luc and I out for a countryside stroll so today we revisited those good ole’ days of single outings that are filled with so many fond memories and fun times adding this one to the long list of adventures.
Today’s Stats: 3.12 field driving miles in one hour and twenty three minutes. Luc was really moving out and got up to a 4 mile per hour walk before breaking into a trot. We had sunshine and blue skies above the smokey horizon! The temperature was in the mid 50s again with a nice warm sun and a cool breeze. Finally there is rain in the weather forecast after nearly 80 days of no moisture. Looking forward to at least one more driving day this week before the rains fall and put our fire season to an end. The Gig is covered and tucked under the gooseneck, ready to go out again!
