BG, you have me rolling over here. I really love the mule, and daddy is freaking huge. Im not sure I have seen a mammoth jack that big before. I can only imagine what it would be like to ride something like that down the road. Thanks everyone for responding to my post. I do appreciate all the information.
It is said that a good picture paints a thousand words.
Whoever caught that pose deserves a prize.
The photo should be a poster.
It demands a title.
As a starter how about:
'Are you looking at me?' (RdN)
'The Mule & the Midget'
'Bunny Big Ears'
'Make my day, Punk'
'Man meets Mountain'
'Want to try?'
'She who must be obeyed'
'Mule for Sale'
'Driving Miss Daisy'
What do we call her?
Mummy Long Legs
'How do you think I feel?'
'We ain't going nowhere'
'He hasn't got a chance, look at him'
'Look at what I got'
'My beautiful Mule'
'I don't need a blanket to keep me warm'
(excuse me for this) 'He's no good in the straw, either'
'Well, what would you do?'
I am beginning to think the look on the man's face says it all.
PS Have you noticed that fencing?

BG, I sure we can figure a way out to get you that picture. The man in the photo is the owner of the mule that my husband and I are interested in. He bred the male mammoth jack (huge a$$ donkey....no pun intended) to the paint mare. I have no clue to who he is other than that. Oh, by the way, you are way to obsessed with a male donkey. LOL!!!! But, like you said, you would never have to buy a beer at the inn again if you rode down the street on him. Will try to come up with more funny sayings to go with the picture later.
The photo of Savannah and his Dad is now my screen saver on this laptop.
A friend in Microsoft showed me how to do it. Now, every time I turn the computor on, a smile comes to my face. My friend and I had a hilarious half hour or so funning about.
It was a sad day yesterday. Friends put down their shire mare and she was later buried out in the paddock. Somehow I managed to get that beautiful, gentle. 17 hand, stoical mare out of my head before I went to bed and for sure laughing at Savannah and his burden in life (the man) had helped me no end.
Trouble is when I went up to the stables today, Tara the shire wasn't there looking over the stable door calling for her carrots. Savannah has got more work to do yet.
