I got sent more pictures but it wont let me upload. I really want this mule too-- he looks like a sweet baby! Just needs a lil meat on his bones and some muscles..
He does look sweet and from what you can see in the pictures he does look awfully thin.

Tell you dh if he doesn't like him you won't make him care for or ride him.
Tell him you'll do it all.

Is a mule harder to get fed back up than a horse?
Our neighbor's mules are stall kept and theyre still muscular-- those are draft mules though.. This one said 'saddle mule'.


I wish!! I already feed and water the (his) horses-- except when he does it-- I am trying to do less so he remembers how much I do help him.. totally not working, lol.

I help him out with them when he asks.. I even help them cut hay then load it on the wagon then buck it into the top of the hay barn.. Maybe I need ta put my foot down? Lol.

Don't want to cause any problems between you and your DH but maybe so?
Are they all his horses or are some of them yours?

My poor ole dh is so used to stuff being brought in I could tell him that I was going to get an elephant and he'd say "okay. What pasture do I need to put the super fence around?" Poor guy. He is pitiful.

Forgot your question.
I think most mules are pretty easy keepers.
I remember the mules the farm had when I was a kid (LOL MANY years ago) got a couple of ears of corn on the cob and hay and/or pasture.

I always fed John small amounts of horse stuff but I do believe you could have thrown him out in a desert or a swamp for a year and he'd have come in plump.

I thought so-- the man that we help out cut hay did say he was impressed with me since I work harder than most men he knew, lol.
I always did think I took more sh** off him that I should anyway.


Hahaha!! Id be havin to help put up the fence!!lol.

Acorn, I read Johns story out loud to the family tonight. We loved it! Thank you for sharing your story! We have 4 horses (2 of which were "rescued) and one mini donk named Dusty. Would love to have a mule. Dad had a mule named Cinder who was a saint. Thanks again!
