Agreed. I posted what you quoted bc many green riders looking for their first horse are reading our forums. OUR guts tell us not to get on either of these mules, but somebody who doesn't know any better might consider it.
Thanks for quoting me. =D

Hope that you fall in love with "Trot", like I did!

You are looking at animals trained in a different culture. This is also a culture that thinks cross tying a horse on concrete and whipping him until he "dances" is acceptable. I liked the first mule. I have seen how a lot of equines trained in this manner behave and that was a standard. He is not the worst mule i have seen or the worst horse.

The second mule i feel for. Behaved well considering what it was put though.

This is a TWH mule

Here is a flashier one as well

Here is a show of Paso mules

And a racking mule

I would love to own a gaited mule.
I know several riders that own them.
I would need some much better video of them gaiting to think of buying.
All these videos don't show these mules really moving.
If I had to pick it would be one of the first two mules.
I have owned one, although not gaited, way different than a horse.

I thought the arizona mule was pretty, they were all cute.
I thought all of them could have been heavier/stockier.
I agree that the first posting looked like mistreated scared mules.
I thought the paso fino mules were way to small, but i am not a paso fino fan.
I like stocky built horses and mules.
