Arrrgggggg! Salt! Cracker putting the Lollipop Lick on half a salt block I gave him recently. Brick got the other half.

Summer in western Nebraska. The mules are sweating and I’m sweating and we’re all craving salt. If I drank coffee in the morning I’d pour it in to that but I don’t so I douse my lentils and rice with the white stuff.

Summer in Nebraska: the area we’re traveling through was once part of what was referred as the Great American Desert.

I try to buy Brick and Cracker a salt block at a farm supply store once per week. Salt is cheap. A 50-lb block costs about 6 bucks. If I can’t find a feed store, I buy a one-pound tube of salt at a grocery or convenience store then just hand feed them that.
