I've never really had anything to do with mules but I've heard that they have amazing stamina and endurance.

What do you plan on doing with the mule if you buy him/her?

In college (I have an animal science/equine emphasis degree) I took a horse training and behavior class where we were assigned with a horse to train, a partner, and their horse. My partner actually got assigned the one and only mule that the university has ever bred! He was an absolute handful and absolute clown! He was so smart, he learned things in half the time it took the smartest horse, so he'd find ways to amuse himself. I have very fond memories! But he was certainly not for the faint of heart....

We really don't have any mules out here. I hear they are great for trails and pack animals. I don't know much else.

Are they also good proctective animals for herds?

Mules are great for just about anythink but I know a gal who shows hers at open shows and its really hard because alot of judges favor horses or don't understand how a mule should move and how comformation should be

We have a mule at the barn I go to. I used to help them with her when they first broke her. She was really smart and still is. She is still pretty green and can be a total andfull I would definitely say mules are not exactly beginner type horses but they do teach you alot on how to cope with actually horses. Lol
