Our little, old, gaited mule's name is Sawbuck
We have an adorable little mule. He is 30 years old and we have had him since he was eight. Was too little to keep up with the big boys.
There isn't a mean bone in him. I've ridden him a lot but the most memorable time was five hours, bareback in the mountains with friends. He was a champ! They are smart and cautious.
Our granddaughter has been riding him since she was six and at nine, now, she still rides him.
He is going blind with cataracts in his right eye and really depends on you to be a good leader for him.
What a joy it is to turn him out and watch him do his gaited trot and, sometimes, even canter, and kick out, then go to his favorite spot to roll.
