I'm working on it... Money's been tight lately, so I may have to wait till next winter.
It's not really the price of buying the mule, but keeping it. Boarding is about 300 a month, plus all the other unexpected horse-related expenses that pop up. Ya know what I mean?
It was really, REALLY hard! I can't belive that people use to do that all day... Still, when I get my land in order, I think I'll get myself a mule and teach him to pull a plow. Therefore, I wouldn't have to deal with the hills and the mud with my tractor... Every time I plow a garden, I get that thing stuck five or six times!
