That is cool. How was it to handle? Was it fairly easy to maneuver? Ester Lily looks like she is happy taking a stroll in her buggy.

It's very easy to handle Janet. It's like handling a well-built garden cart or wheelbarrow. Once you lock in the handles, the center of gravity is perfect. And even though it's well-built, it's still light-weight. You can buy a head lock for it, but I didn't see the need for that since I don't do de-horning, etc. here.

We had our Cultivators class tonight and of course all three girls wanted a ride, so they walked into it (standing in a line) and I pushed them around.

It sounds really handy. I will have to put it on the wish list. I got a kick out of the three girls wanting to take a ride. That would be something I would have wanted to try too. Your a good Nanna. I had a girlfriend from years ago ask me if I remembered doing barrel races. We would stand on the barrel balancing and walking the barrel to see he could get to the finish line first. I got to where I could go around grandma's house. I told her it brought back good memories and made me want to try it again. I haven't yet but I have the perfect barrel.

Now that's a skill with definite bragging rights. They used to do that around here on timber logs floating down the rivers.

Too bad I can't swim or I'd probably be trying it.

That's really cute.

I told MaryJane that it's a jogging stroller... She said she's thinking of taking it for a spin downtown.

To be fair, I've seen stranger things around Moscow!

Little Ester is going to be so tame and nothing will faze her! I do have to ask...what did you use this for?

It's a back-saver when we need to move Ester from one place to another, before she's fully halter-trained. :)

How about the calf floater? Helium filled bags tied to a body harness? Just a few inches off the ground and gently push calf where you want it?

Elaine thought it would be cool too! Imagine if you had an injured cow and couldn't lift it and didn't want to use the tractor. Could it be floated? Sounds crazy but what is crazy?
