Can you not get him a companion? he is probably more lonely than bored and there are so many donkeys, mini horses who need a good home.

I EXTREMELY highly doubt that your other mule will work himself into a colic. Very unlikely. People think that horses (and mules) will colic at just the slightest change, but really they are fairly hardy. Sure if you suddenly double the amount of feed they get, that's just asking for it. But turning them out into a different area? He'll probably bounce around and have fun then calm right down.

I tend to agree with you keeping a companion in with him. Surely out of the twelve horses you have, one of them will get along with your old mule. will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. ... Explore. Dream. Discover.”

Well actually all the horses that we have do not like Ned ,Ned is to friendly and to sweet to fend for himself all our other horses are quite young and they want to play with him so they are rough of him.

His best friend is a 27year old named buck, they love each other sooo much.

I am not worried about Ned colicing I am worried about buck colicing. But Ned is doing INCREDIBLEY well its actually scary how much better he is, he can roll and get up great and he can walk super fast with his head high. The bets say he is no longer in pain at all. So considering he is that good he gets to go outside with buck everyday and play in a snow drift :)
