We were just hanging out in our campsite, blending in with the other campers.

    You know they all put HUGE smiles on all the other campers faces and the Rangers too!!!

    I hope The Herd doesn’t feel the way Bunny does about horses. For the longest time, she was sure she could take on a horse and win. I’m sure you all have much better manners when the horses come by!

    Typhoon on the alert! He sure knew how to get the gang up and looking.

    Scooping the poop from that dog would be a big undertaking!

    Gotta love a husky and their personalities! Do they sing when one notices something like that? My crew will get up like that,but my one female husky will start to sing as if she alerting all of us and then the rest of the crew joins in harmony, if thats what you want to call it. It makes me laugh when they sing.
    I want to know how you walk all 6 at one time? Thats amazing to me!
    have a great weekend,
    Holly and the huskies

      For the most part, they do not sing when seeing something like that (though Frankie can make his “wookie” noises and Typhoon can scream). The weird part is that they see horses all of the time, but this was a new horse.

      As for walking all of them – practice, practice, practice.

    I see QTip has vanished from the 3rd photo. How come?

      Laughing – because hu-dad messed up the picture. Q was there the whole time.

    Handsome big dog too! Wondered what the structure is in the background.

    • D.K. Wall on May 19, 2013 at 9:51 am

      That structure houses equipment for the rangers (tractors, lawn mowing, etc.), not the horses. There are campsites right on the lake, but we like being at the “end” of the camping area where it is less crowded. Something about if we get noisy or something.

      The horses are not far away, though, and we do get to see them every time we head out for a walk.
