Pure Country is a great movie that George Strait stars in! You have to go find it and see it!! I've watched it literally 1000 times. My dad and me watched it all the time growing up and now me and my husband and boys watch it. The intro song which George Straits and his son sing, they sing.............

"When you hear twin fiddles and a steel guitar,
You're listening to the sound of the American heart.
And Opry music on a Saturday night
Brings a smile to your face and a tear to your eye."

I thought it fit perfectly in cause that actually what your story did to me!! I never had a mule but the way you described your guy made me think of my old baby. He died at 40 years old (7 yrs ago) and I miss him and his personality to this day.

Thank y'all for listening to some of John's stories.
This thread has brought back so many memories. I've had a smile on my face and a warm fuzzy feeling. It is really nice.
Thanks again.

Hey - It's American Donkey and Mule Society (ADMS), and we're still around - over 46 years old.

We register all types of donkeys and mules from Miniature to Mammoth, mules to Zebra Hybrids.

There is also an American Gaited Mule Association, you'll see more of that at Shelbyville. If you want a good gaited mule, go with a mare that gaits and a jack that singlefoots. There are some gaited breeders with sites on the web.

Appreciate the info.

Shelbyville, TN?.. makes sense to look there-- thanks for the tip!!

I have a nice gaited mare but she's only 14.1hh-- if I cross her with a taller 16.3hh gaited mammoth jack, will the foal take more the jacks size or the mare?

Is there a 'standard' gaited mule size?

Every foal the mare had out of a 16+hh stud was all over 16hh-- you think it would work out that way with a mule too?

I found me a 17hh solid whire mule for a very nice price-- I asked for more pics of him, and he's skinny.. I can see all of his ribs. His neck looks like it belings on a standard donkey frame-- its really under muscled. He's pretty young too. I just can't get the hubby to see what I see in him-- or hed be in my backyard tomorrow.
