My nieghbor thought he was a mule....Poor Atreyu :(

He has since changed his mind and now thinks he is beautiful but when he was going through a gawky 6-8 month old stage he thought he was so ugly. LOL glad he changed his mind. Me being his human Mom have always thought my boy pretty. Yes I am slightly biased I know.

He looks nothing like a mule! Lol He's a handsome boy! Going to be a looker when he's done growing into himself.

And it's okay...was on a walk once with my Aires and a guy stopped us and asked if he was a thoroughbred. Ummmmm...no, he's a flashy black and white Percheron/paint cross. *facepalm*

With those chromed up legs, they thought he was a a mule???? NO WAY! He is growing into his large head which I think is quite "regal". Mule, hah!

I have never been around a mule but I have seen some pretty ones I just never thought of him as a mule kinda surprised me when he told me that. Thanks I think he has chrome to spare myself. He is a just gelded one year old Percheon-Foxtrotter mix. He is already as big as his momma.

Now, I do like mules, I think they're adorable, and some are quite pretty, but that just looks like a handsome little colt to me! I wouldn't say you're biased, I would say you've got better eye sight, lol.

Now, it's just his ears. Some horses can pull off having big ears and not looking dorky. Looks like he's going to be one of them.

Oh, and Ware, mules do come in chromed up colors too .

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

He's so handsome!

Nothing like a mule at all.. no big rabbit ears, no long narrow face, nope.
