Hey, who has mules here? I don't have one, but I love to ride them and think they are hilarious and reliable.

Post some pics if you have one!

I don't have a mule, but my trainer does. He's a hambone and is really smart. He's the jealous type and right now he's mad at me because I left him for Duke :roll:

Don't have pics at the moment because I'm not at home

\/ \/ \/ Those are his long floppy ears that I love to play with!

Cool guys! There are two mules on Willy's ranch - Whiskey and Blondie. Whenever we go out on the trails Whiskey finds us and follows us around. He's so cuuuute! I love mule faces.

I don't have a good reason but I don't like mules.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.
