    Why is the filly seemingly low down in a stall with no bedding? Why are her hoofs painted? There seemed to be a third person there. Why didn't you both stop the idiot who was abusing the donkey? Or is that the 'mule' you said lives with your filly? If it is a donkey and he whole and if, as you said earlier, your mare is in season, then expect a baby in 11 months.

    Couldn't really see your mare at all, since she was too far away. Next time, have someone hold her while you take the photos. She is halter broke, right??

    I couldn't see her filly very well in the video posted by demonwolfmoon, but from what I could see, the filly didn't look in bad shape. The first pic is really aweful but it looks like she is looking/feeling better and was super calm. Op, rice bran is gawd aweful if fed in excess. The hay and nasty water is unpalatable for horses - period. The fresh water will do a world of good, although I suggest you get a much bigger tub. Rinse it out every couple days when it's low, then refill it, of course. It looks like your filly does have access to grass, but I would feed either some alfalfa pellets/cubes or some other roughage if she is penned up all the time with some sort of hay like coastal, Sudan, etc. you do seem to be doing what you can for your horse. She looks better in the video than she did in the pic. I would love to see a video of her fairly close to you, where we can see her body. She looks cute and will be a great horse, given the proper care needed to grow up and be a happy, healthy horse.

    I wondered what was going to be there

    ^ just as a note, some mules just tend to look like donkeys. My mare had a mule filly, and if I hadn't seen that little wild dun baby come out of my refined mare I wouldn't have believed for a second that they were related. The baby had a donkey cross, HUGE ears, barred legs, and thick coarse hair like a donkey. Only thing about her that looked remotely 'mule' was her more oval hooves and her tail.

    Either way it should NOT be ridden.

    Meant to say, "...and if he is whole.."

    Do the cats have access to water and food? Who feeds the donkey? Is he yours as well? What water - clean water, does he receive?

    Looks like a donkey to me as well.

    Sorry GH. Maybe I should reword the first line of my post. Heaven only knows what came to mind!

    I know the OP has said it is a mule and I'm really hoping it is.

    I don't get why you seem to be hiding in the barn taking a video of your horse, very strange, this whole thing is very odd in all sorts of ways.

    Why did no one try to stop that idiot riding the little long ears?
