Skinners by Paige Thomson

Calgary photographer and photojournalist Paige Thomson visits with “Mule Skinners”  Dwight Beard and Gord Mowat. That’s right. Mule Skinners. You learn something new everyday.

“Alberta’s history was built on people using horse and mules for travel, but when tractors and cars came, they where not used anymore, a couple of small town men, are keeping that tradition alive by training mules and driving teams of them.”
