Bring Me My Mutton Musket

It's been great having the sheep around during the rides. It takes you far from the office to be riding in the mountains among the animals. As cool as it has been though, there is just one thing that is getting a little out of control. All the sheep poop!

There is sheep poop all over the trail. You try your best not to hit it, but it's unavoidable most of the time. The tires were getting packed up with the stuff. The rule of the day was no smiling or mouth breathing at speeds over 5 mph. I still had some stuck in my tire treads upon returning to work. I don't think there was too much odor to it, but then again I don't remember any visitors this afternoon either.

So I got to thinking on the way home from work...what kind of tire is best for sheep poop? An open tread? Semi-slicks? A WTB Timber Wolf may do the trick!

Marcus has been bringing his camera along on the rides too. He got some good action shots like the one on the right here. There are a few others on Flickr.

Are you gonna post a pic of a sheep pooped tyre?

You know, I really didn't even think about that...until now. I'll see what I can do!

I would suggest fenders
