    I do have to admit I would also stay clear of a stated "strong willed mule", but only because I would believe it to be the owner that made it that way.

    From my very limited experience, I've found the problems I've encountered were usually my fault.

    Well, I've only had one mule and she just turned 3 a few days ago. She's great, but we were advised not to even attempt riding her ungtil she turned 3, so off she goes to the trainer soon, which I worry about. She fits the typical status quo for mules, though. She doesn't move unless it's her idea, she's got the biggest, nosiest, most playful attitude of them all, and she is so happy to come up and greet anyone. The first time she ever got her feet trimmed, she just stood there like a pro. As long as she thinks its her idea, she will do just about anything.

    Here are some pictures, she looks just like the one in the ad:

    Lucara - the video makes me smile. All that noise.

    Horses can be very affectionate. It is only a question of how you relate to the horse and how the horse trusts you.

    My girlie Mare and I are presently going down the route of minimal restraint. I try not to hold onto the lead rein. Mostly she does what I ask her nicely to do. If I goes this way, then so does she, and if I goes that way then so does she. No shouting, no tugging, just for me to ask her to do what I want her to do. And when from time to time she hesitates, then I ask her again - nicely. Mostly she'll do it. When we are standing and talking to folks, there she is standing and listening but she don't say too much. Without a doubt she's the quietest female I have ever met.

    But it means I have to let go and hope the huzzy doesn't run off to teach me a lesson as to who is boss. The secret seems to be that we both think we are the boss. Just like me and 'Her-in-doors'.

    I do wonder how I'd get on with a mule. Oh my.
