Re: minimum maximum mileage

Just for giggles....I forgot about "training" for sponging or sloshing. 
Last week, almost home, I used the last of my water to squirt down Malik's
neck and cool him a bit....well, you would have thought a snake had bit
him.  He "sidepassed" 4 feet sidewise with this wide eyed look that if I
hadn't been trying to hang on, might have enjoyed.  So.....time for "sponge
training" and "slosh bottle training"!  :)
