Lmao I saw that pic! =D
I'm excited but always nervous about the whole economy thing.

When I go up, I'll try to take some pics of him. I'm hoping we can see his confirmation through his winter fluff. =D I'm also hoping they are willing to go low enough. =/

We'll see! Still a lot of maybes

Right now mules are worth more than horses. Especially a good trail mule. But the saddle thing becomes a problem because regular horse saddles hurt their back because they are shaped differently.

I bought a treeless saddle for the mule.

I like treeless anyway, You can use them with just about anything! I had a treeless when I had Sammy. The lady I gave him to was only supposed to store the saddle at her place but she gave the stupid thing away when she traded Sam for a QH. ARGH I hate that woman!

Anywho, how hard is it to find bridles to fit their head, what size would I be looking for?
What size blanket does yours wear, if one at all? I was thinking of getting a windbreaker at least for Joe if I get him. It doesn't get too horribly cold but it is windy!
How tall is your mule?

He's only a little over 14 h. Not sure exactly. He uses a horse size bridle, but his head is thicker. You may need a longer throat latch. And if you do english a larger noseband

Lucara,
When I hire someone to help on the ranch as a rider I look for experience with all kinds of horses and different ages of horses.
I look for someone that is open to ideas and can take directions well.
I don't mind if they do thing a little different but what they do must work and be safe.
If you have experience with a mule that would be fine,but I would look at your riding skill more.
I also look to see that you are in good physical condition and the way that you would move around the animals.

I hope this helps you.

I saw the picture of the mule and he looked very sweet. :)

I hope you get him. He looks all cute and cuddly and kind.

Alright. I'm working on the riding skill now. I could use some muscle that's for sure! I got turned away from 2 different jobs a couple years back because I was to scrawny. The sad thing is, at my previous job, I did twice the work they were asking with no problems. I'm never going to be bulky or intimidating looking but I can control horses and even problem horses to some extent. It just sucks when they take one look at you and not matter what you say or do through the rest of the interview, all they see is that your scrawny.
