    I've never ridden a mule but I think it would be cool.

    Is a mule a female donkey or something?

    A mule is a cross between a horse and a donkey. I think when breeding its mainly donkey stallions to horse mares.

    Really? :) I'd like to see that, I don't know alot about Mules, don't think we have many in the UK. They look calm, sturdy types though. Are they quite good then?

    That is so so very weird.
    Like Meggymoo. I would like to see that happen!
    But how on earth can they do dressage?
        04-23-2007, 08:03 AM
    they get bred with a dressage type horse. Get some sort of dressage lines in them and that helps. Oh and the only thing about mules though is that female mules cannot reproduce. If you breed them they or their baby or both of them will not live. Its just very hard something about the chromosomes or something. I think there has been a recording of one mule having a baby though but that's all i've heard of. Oh and most people will say mules are stubborn its kinda the thing people have labeled them with it really depends on the mule though. I find Molly to have the occasional stubborness nothing more than what a horse would have though.
