We have a one month old miniature mule filly! She's quite the little prankster and I wouldn't exactly put her down as 'sweet' but we love her to death! We plan to show her as a weanling this year if we can ever get that crazy mule-itude in order, and if she does well, continue her show career from there. If not, we'll hopefully use her as a therapy mount in our program ^_^
Yay!! I love mules! Proudly show them : D actually just came back from a show! Here is the North American Saddle Mule website, if anyone is interested -
I will post pictures of Willie here when I get some... he is a really great boy to show. I don't own him, but my trainer lets me show him, as long as I pay my entry fees. I am definitely blessed. The community is wonderful, and the mules are just amazing!
My family has had mules for pretty much my entire life. Until the mid 90's, we used them to farm with. Since then, they have just been more of a pleasure driving hobby. Unfortunately, our last mule is nearing his end. He's 26 this year and has very severe arthritis.
This was one of our mules who's mate we lost to West Nile. So, he was broke to ride and sold as a riding mule.
