This mule isn't mine, but my Bo's. He passed on at the ripe old age of 53 a couple weeks ago :( He was such a sweet, stubborn ole thing-- quite the little character. He was great at being a road block during riding lessons, and would sometimes follow me on my mare around until we went to fast and left him too far behind. I'll miss him!

Here he is in his "winter coat". Ha ha.

Ladycelia~ That is so cool that she's gaited! I have a gaited horse so I know what it's like.

Cute long ears everyone, but I have a question ( sorry if this is off topic ) why do donkeys have a darker stripe on their shoulder? Is it random or is it always there? Again, beautiful donkeys and mules, everyone. Wish I had one :p

Donkeys, like horses, come in different breeds, although there are not nearly as many donkey breeds as there are horse breeds. Standards and some of the other breeds have the stripe (often called the Jerusalem donkey because of the stripe) but other breeds don't.

I also noticed that some donkeys have bigger ears then others. Is that just another different breed thing? Like here's my guy who has big ole ears-

This is Sunshine, the mule we used to own. My mother bred her Appendix mare to a mammoth jack and got this.

She was EVIL! No one ever bothered to teach her ground manners, and I used to have to go out into the pasture with a bucket to fend her off! xD She would honestly try to run me down, and I used to have to sprint away and leap onto the nearest horse to keep her from trampling me! It was terrifying!

She was pretty, though, and deceivingly friendly with strangers! :)

I haven't seen her in a few years, but my ex stepfather owns her so I assume she's at a pack station somewhere charming unsuspecting city folks. xD

The hills were bathed in moonlight, the shadows not so stark;
Silver light reflected off his brown hide as he held me in the dark
I love you, Mudpie!

This is Lola Bunny my 7 year old Jenny

Poor Lola has been misunderstood by her previous owners and aches to be a mommy. Her previous owner is a breeder of lambs and got Lola as a LGD, unfortunately Lola didn't understand why everyone else got to have babies besides her so she would steal the lambs away from their mothers and wouldn't let them have their babies back. Her owner had to put her in a pen by herself and she became very sour towards him. He decided she needed a new home as he didn't want something he couldn't approach and couldn't protect his lambs and that's how she ended up with me.

She lived up to the stubborn aspect getting in the trailer, but now she is the sweetest little thing. She loves getting her ears rubbed and treats. I'm greeted with her sweet very loud bray everytime she sees me go outside.
