No worries. Being wrong is how you learn.

Just FWIW, for her to be palomino, she would have to be a cross, as the cream gene is not present in Arabians (neither is the dun gene).

Haha well hooray, a grade of Arab descent, unhandled and unbroken with poor conformation. SURE I'm going to pay $3000 for that!

Free black john mule and buckskin for sale (jasper)



We have a 14 hand mule we would like to give away to a good home, we are down sizing the herd. He's a 3yr old. we've got a halter and lead rope on him letting him drag it around so far he's doing ok with that. Also have a 4yr old buckskin thats green broke, halter and lead rope broke, shes about 14 1/2 15 hands, asking $300 obo. Call or txt



Yes... Yes, letting a mule drag a lead rope around his pasture is a brilliant idea... No accident waiting to happen there... Ugh!!!

That's actually something I've seen done a lot, and can be done safely. I believe the concept is that the horse (mule, in this case) steps on the lead and learns not to freak with the pressure. Not saying I agree with it (and not saying I don't ) but it's not totally outrageous.

Oh... Well, it's definitely not been done around me. Seems like there's too much chance of a horse's legs getting tangled up in the rope and getting hurt. I believe there would be better and safer ways to teach about pressure (to each his own, I guess), but I'm not exactly sure that's what they're aiming for here. Kinda sounds like he's not been halter trained at all so they're just leaving it on? I'm only guessing, could be wrong. Just seems off to me. *shrug*

Exactly what it sounds like to me, they're in the process of halter breaking and that's the route they're taking. For a free mule I wouldn't expect too much training

i did that with my mare to teach her to respect her ropes. this way, she can be ties to a 30ft line when we're out camping, and graze without getting herself all tangled cause she learned a) step OVER the face grabbing land snake or b) move her feet when it grabs her. i did it with supervision and a 4 ft lead at first, in a small area so she couldnt run off and trip herself. when doe correctly, it can be a usefull training method.

We have done that method with all of our younger horses. If done the correct way, it works great. But, you have to have open space with nothing to hang the rope.
