    Worked with her today! I didn't have a crop so I used a buggy whip, when she charged I hit her on the nose with it. It worked pretty well! Once she didn't stop for it so I just opened one of the stall doors and let her hit it. Didn't run at me anymore after that one. Thanks for the help. I'll keep everyone up on how she is doing.

    Forgot to add, who knows how she will be tomorrow with the crazy thing she is. The corner I put her in, she busts out and gets her leg hung in the gate at times. The more she breaks out, the worse she is at charging and acting ugly. I tried pushing the gate back on her, needless to say it was a losing battle. So today I didn't bother with getting her in the corner, just got her to wear I could walk in and out without being possibly ran over. One thing works alright with her one day, the next she's totally different. My boss wants to have her broken to pull a buggy when I get done with her (if I ever can). To heck if I'd get pulled around by that lunatic!

    I know I wouldn't be interested in climbing up in a buggy pulled by her either! Good luck, just don't give ground, stand it! Keep up the good work!

    The past three days I have been working her in and out of the corner, popping her on the nose when she came at me, she has even showed signs of submissiveness. She even STOOD in the corner! The second time she tried to jump out and I popped her with the whip until she stopped. I've just been working the daylights out of her in the run and in the middle of the barn and she gets to rest in the corner. Thanks for all the helpful advice all of you have given, feel free to keep giving it.

    Glad the advice you received is working! Don't forget to reward her with pats and praise when she does what you want her to and hopefully it won't take as long to start her as you originally thought!

    I don't know how well this would work, I haven't worked with mules for quite some years now. Move their feet. I was watching a Clinton Anderson show the other day where he was helping a lady of with an aggressive horse. He actually ended taking an Australian stock whip in with him the first time to tell the horse he meant business.

    I know mules and donkeys are different than horses, but I'd still make them move their feet. You need to have their respect, otherwise it's not safe. Which you know.

    Thanks. I wanted to post more, but it didn't load right for me.

    To the OP -- If you want, you can pm me and I'll try to give you some exercises, or you can just search Clinton Anderson on here I'm sure you will get a lot of tips on what to do.
