Buy a different one. Breeding one (if you do it responsibly) is going to cost way more than the price of buying one.

Oh, and according to the Guinness Book of World Records, the tallest mule in the world is 19.1hh, so I think those people were exaggerating.

Agreed with farmpony...breed to a mammoth jack that is known for throwing taller offspring. It is bound to be taller since your mare is 16.1 hh.

Yep, breeding to a gaited Mammoth Jack should fix you up. Probably the one that you were looking at was a cross between a Mammoth and either a Belgian, Percheron, or Clydesdale. That is how they get the giant mules.

Ditto that --- especially in this day and age of massive horse abandonment

Here's a gaited mule link just for starters
