There happen to be quite a few horse people who adore mules, myself in particular.
They can do plenty
of things better than a horse. You really need to do some research on mules. You're embarrassing yourself.
Mules used to be the preferred mounts of royalty. To be caught on a horse would have been beneath their dignity. Horses were for the common people.
Oh, and the horses you think are so 'natural'? ALL domestic horses were purpose created by humanity. None
of them would have just naturally occurred in nature without direct human influence. Your misinformation is staggering in its enormity.
Dogs are another human created species. Dogs and wolves are identical, if you look at their DNA. In fact, any
breed of dog can interbreed with a wolf. I happen to think dogs and mules are quite nifty, and I'm glad we 'tampered' with nature to create them.
