I have one too. His name is Tiny and he is one part of a team that my dad had for many years. About 2 years ago, Buster (his mate) had to be put down due to arthritis but Tiny is still going strong. He is a smaller size for the breed, only about 17 hh but Buster was about 18.2. Very smart and very sweet. This coming from a woman who is really not a big fan of mules. LOL
Awww... that picture was adorable!! He looks more horse than mule!
Yeah, he acts more like a horse too. Not stubborn the way most mules are. He has been around the place nearly my whole life. I used to drive them when I was little but he has been retired for several years. I love walking out into the pasture and just standing with my head on his shoulder. Such a sweetie.
My boyfriend is in forestry and when he's out he wants to work for a while then start his own business. He said I can do some of the logging with horses if the landowner prefers that type so we've been looking around at some drafts and mules. These would be perfect!
