Mules as Gaurdians
Who all uses a mule as a gaurdian animal for their broodmares and foals? Primarily one that was raised from birth and grew up around foals... Pros? Cons? Any issues of them attacking the foals?
I ask this because we live around a lot of wildlife... coyotes, bobcats, and the occasional mountain lion has been spotted. Plus, neighbor dogs that aren't controlled. We'd like to have some broodmares in the future and wish to take all precautions possible for their health and safety as well as their foals.
