Barry, it's a really big donkey. They're called Mammoth Jacks. ; )

And I thought an 18 hand hairy Shire was spectacular - I am going to have to find a new word for the Shires.

The mammoth jack makes my jaw drop. What a magnificent creature. Fancy that chap carrying me down to the Inn - I'd never have to buy another beer.

If it is that big, that intelligent and that stubborn, where would a mere mortal human start?

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'
'Game on'
'Man meets Mountain'
'Want to try?'
'She who must be obeyed'
'Mule for Sale'
'Driving Miss Daisy'

What do we call her?
Fuzzy Bear
Big Ears
Mummy Long Legs
Magnificent Maisie
Twinkle Toes

I am going mad, I can't get her out of my head.

We should start a competition

Yet more "I haven't a clue"* ramblings

Title:
'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'
'You try'
'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'
'Muletide Greetings'
'Well, what would you do?'

I am beginning to think the look on the man's face says it all.

My wife tells me I have it all wrong.
The photo of the man and 'the fuzzy mule' is in fact a photo of
the Mule's Dad - the donkey.

Tell me confirm to me that I'm obsessed by a donkey.

Then maybe I can go to sleep

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.

Shes a nice looking mule. I guess you'd have to meet her in person to see if she really is "strong willed".

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.
