    Dont discount a mule. MANY SAY once you go mule you will never go back. If you get the right breeding they can be super smart with amazing body condition. You get the smarts of a donkey and the athletic ability of a horse. As Allison Finch shows mules can do anything a horse can do ... in english, but the same goes for western they can be amazing barrel racers and their sliding stops are envied by the NRHA. And as for me I had a mule driving team full blood brother and sister, best animals I will have ever owned!

    Well, OP...you seem to have a mystery here! No stallions at the previous place, and a donkey close by but not enough time for a mare to be bagging up.

    If she is in foal there was certainly a "man" someplace along the line. Please let us know what the vet says on Friday.

    I find mules so interesting. But I will probably never own one since I suspect they are smarter than I am.

    Pretty much my opinion, too. I have enough with trying to outsmart the Arabians!

    Once a long long time ago one was born in barn I was boarding in. The owner was horrified enough to give it me and I hand raised it for three months before the B figured out it was potentially worth much, much money (think dutch warmboldX) and both the mare and foal disappeared in the night. If I could find a nice Jack I'd be breeding my two big girls but the pickins are slim here.

    My 19 year old maiden mare bagged up so much to where you could milk her when she saw a foal in a pasture near her....lol. Is it possible that it is a false pregnancy or something?

    Mules can be used for anything! You can even breed for a gaited mule. Which is worth big money here in tn. Mules are alot more surefooted than most horses.

    I would def have a vet check the mare instead of worrying for no reason.

    I have seen mares bag up when not prego. Def when they see a foal.
