I do know that they eat differently than a horse .
A mule guy told me once there are only 2 types. A good one and a Bad one. what ever that means.

6 am Friday and its time to start work still raining and forcast for the weekend. Ill try Stella again but we seem to have distance between use. She likes me when I have food then turns her back. No threat just lack of respect so saturday its on with the wet weather gear and work Stella. I'm going to try a new approach and that is comminicate with her, but be the first to turn my back, and see if I can get her to begin to follow.

Next Wednesday shoes go on bugs and we will start working him, rain or no rain he needs it, and I'd like him a little more settled befor the season starts in 8 weeks. Just a gental reminder our days will start to get longer so in the north get out and ride.

Cheers all, time to earn so I can repair the damage SWMBO did to the float, and so she can take it out again and match the other side. When I pointed it out to her she smiled. Again.

My blog foremyhorse.org you may enjoy the read. Its different.

Critter...sorry you are so sad. Rainy weather doesn't help...but it does appear our friend there, roadyy has a secret supply of some wacky pills....zzzesh!! He went far beyond where my eight year olds go....that really causes me to,go...shock:.....I'm used to,about anything......um roadyy, I'm a bit worried about you.... I think you need more time in the saddle, and less time behind that desk!



Still raining......and rather hard.....

Well since Littleman is going to be leaving our property along with Jems(which isn't broke to ride) then I thought about looking into another ride so I could get the wife out with me and Amber.

The young man here at work that wanted me to take his two horses and I turned down has an uncle that passed away 2 days ago. He has 2 horses and a riding mule that also pulled wagon they are looking to rehome after the funeral this weekend.

I know nothing about them other than they are extremely tough in rough terrain. I've seen where they are the referred ride for mounted hunting as they are the least gun shy and the steadiest temperament if they are the good ones. lol

I know nothing of their feeding needs. I'll wait to see if they ask me again about him before doing to much research to see what I'll be getting into.
