Could not figure out why the horse were having a cow this morning! Only to take a look out back and see a BIG beautiful moose meandering around on the backside of the property.
Our friend sent us this email and figured it might be an appropriate time to display it...
"Only in Alaska ....... This guy raised an abandoned moose calf with his horses, and believe it or not, he has trained it for lumber removal and other hauling tasks. Given the 2,000 pounds of robust muscle, and the splayed, grippy hooves, he claims it is the best work animal he has. He Says the secret to keeping the moose around is a sweet salt lick, although, during the rut he disappears for a couple of weeks, but always comes home....Impressive !!
Bound to be someone out there that will raise some issues with this treatment of a Wild animal. To them I say. "If the Moose keeps coming back, what's the problem?"
