A life long love of horses has taken Shannon many interesting places and given her the opportunity to meet a wide range of people. Having started riding lessons in England at the age of six,then moving back to the U.S. in 1981. After years of showing Hunters and in All-Around divisions on the Quarter Horse Circuit she started trail riding, judging open horse shows and teaching horsemanship at 4-H camp.
A desire to try something new led her to mules and she has been hooked on the long ears ever since. Today she owns three Belgian Draft Mules and one Mammoth Donkey. She trail rides, shows English and Western, rides in parades, packs, drives and will try anything at least once with her mules.
My corgi Levi's brother from the same litter was available for adoption. His ear had become injured as a puppy and was flopping some when showing. A vet who tried to FIX it, ended up ruining it! He was having a successful show career! So I decided that it would be lots of fun for have Levi's brother live with us. It would give Levi some company while I was at work and someone to help get some of Levi's energy out! So on February 22nd Strauss came to live with us! The two took of and it was instant playing! They love to run all around the yard together and even play tug of war together! True Brothers!
Strauss was not sure what to think of the mules and donkeys at first!
