As we get closer to coming home from Australia, I started thinking about getting together a string of 4-7 nags to get into the back country with.

This is how I grew up hunting elk, and to me, it's the way it is done.

The first 5 years in the Navy, the old man was closing out his packstring and down sizing to the point he had 5 or 6 BLM burros, a couple foxtrotter horses and a mule. He eventually got hurt to the point he wasn't able to take care of all that and sold the lot off.

What do you guys think about breed/donkeys/mules for a new backcountry remuda?

I am thinking a Norweigian Fjords, and if I can find good enough cheap enough get into some mammoth mules.
