Looks like I will be the first to post here! Who else here has mules? I have one mule we got in February. She ended up being the most expensive auction rescue ever! She had EPM, and unfortunately despite our many weeks of trying to treat her, her damage seems to be permanent. She is incredibly sweet and spends her time wandering around the field with our goats.
Here she is giving our buck and back scratch

I am hoping to go look at another molly mule within the next couple weeks for a trail mule.

What does everyone else do with their mules? Please share your pics, I'd love to see your longears!

She looks like a lover, OP. I really want to have a nice mule in the future.
Either a Belgian or a very well bred paint mule.

she is cute. To get a nice mule start with a nice mare and breed to a nice Mammoth Jack. You should google Bishop Mule days . There are many nice mules that go show, jumping, driving, cutting..

mule owner, Bess Wall here from Florida. We've been riding trail mules for years and prefer them to horses. They are tougher out on the trail, seem to sweat less (conserve energy), are much better trail animals overall, usually smarter than their owners if the owners don't wise up :lol: quickly and will out think their owners.

Actually, we've had some really outstanding mules over the years. When a mule does something really well, what it does is way better than the horse that does that same thing well. Meaning, if a mule beats a horse in a competition, it is heads and heals above the horses.

Thanks for the link to your website Bess! Beautiful mules.
I had wanted a mule for years before we got Sarah.

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 ^_^
