Ever heard one of your friends say, “Hey ya’ll, watch this!”? Usually, things don’t turn out quite as planned. My youngest son owns a kennel with some of his coon hunting buddies. The name of the kennel is Indian Hill Blueticks and they raise and hunt Gascon Blue Ticks Hounddogs. I would tell you more about it if I could, but he’s the one who can give you the run-down on the pedigrees and bloodlines. Anyhow, he had this cool idea to rig up a system to walk his dogs at the side of the Mule (ATV). We’ve seen pictures online of people who have done this to walk several dogs at one time. Here’s a picture of them with three dogs hooked up and ready to roll.
See the firepit in the yard? Right behind the birdhouse? That’ about how far they made it before the system collapsed. That’s life though. No matter how much we plan and prepare, sometimes things don’t turn out like we expected. So what do we do? We get up, dust ourselves off, and go back to the drawing board. I think the next design should incorporate a Reese hitch. Maybe, weld the pipe to the hitch so that it projects out to each side and evenly distributes the load? I’ll post more pics when we get the next prototype up and running.
