Congratulations to Shane Weigand for winning our photo contest this week!

Shane submitted this incredibly unique photo of herself and her burro competing in a pack burro race while sporting some Easyboot Epics.

Shane’s cream-white donkey, Julia, is eight years old. She was born and raised in the south valley of Albuquerque, New Mexico, and listed on Craiglist for sale. She went from a backyard pet to a trail ultra runner and wilderness packer in three months. Julia loves her new life! She has done races ranging from 8 to 14 miles with 2,000 feet of elevation gain starting at 10,000 feet. She is not just a donkey, but an athlete, for sure!

The New Mexico pack burro racing team that Shane is involved with competes in five or six races a year. Shane says, “There are quite a few competitors that use Easyboots pretty regularly. If you haven’t been to a pack burro race, it needs to be on your list!”

  1. I liked how last week’s winner told what boots her horse wore. It would be nice to know from the other winners as well.
