Los caballos

The pic below, from BOSIA site, shows the finca mules and horses each packing two 150 lb sacks of coffee beans, heading a mile down the road to Balgue

Thinking about collecting some thick felt pads, sturdy bosals, hoof rasps and a few other supplies to send down with a delegation. Good quality source suggestions are welcome. This composite pic is mine.
