Renewing an ancient bond

  Jason Fisher’s essay on his experiences with mules brings optimism. Seems like the younger generations have strayed far away from such non-motorized pursuits. It is great to know there are still young individuals such as Fisher who like to see the landscape from atop an equine’s back. I challenge anyone to see how different the world looks atop a beast! Joining up with equines is primal and ancient. To become their coworker (Fisher’s word) in the herd culture is a rare privilege in this time of tremendous artificial electronic-induced living, in this time of rampant motorized abuse of public lands.
