want to breed my mare to.....

Ok I have this unnatural love for mules so I want to breed my mare to a mammoth jack and get myself a mule baby!!! This would be next year at the very least. Have any of you ever done this and how was the outcome?

One of my close friends has a really nice jack and I can breed her to him for free so I am thinking why not. I have been around luts of mules just not babies are they that much different?

Arent mules already donkey/horse crossed, so I would just look into it more genetics wise.

Aren't all mules infertile? (except for a few of the females)

She's talking about breeding a mommoth jack (which is a really large donkey) with a horse to create a mule. It works out just fine genetics-wise. Yes, the resutling offspring would usually be infertile (but not always).

BTW - my Jack used to be used for breeding mules and I heard he had produced some nice ones. Too bad I got him gelded. But he is my sweet boy.

Honestly - I really haven't seen a mule that I didn't like. As long as you are familiar with them and know how to handle them - it should work out fine. The other nice thing is even in this economy the mules are holding their value better than horses.

Thanks Cat I guess I didn't clarify myself enough. I have been around plenty of mules and plenty of babies just not mule babies. Lol I wish your mule wasn't gelded he sounds great!

I am quite aware of the genetics aspect of breeding and a mule is as Cat said the offspring of a horse crossed woth a donkey.

Is there any other reason why you want to have a mule baby besides that you just want the experiance? Do you have any plans for him/her in the future?
Why don't you think about buying a weaning mule? I'm sure there's some out there looking for a good home.

I have heard that mules are harder to bond with than horses...Mules go for alot of money around here!
