Stubborn as a Mule 3 Replies

I believe that mules get that title because you cant make them do something stupid that could get them hurt. Also in the old days they would only breed a cull type mare to a jack. And so they got…Continue

Sue, do you have any pictures of the tyke yet?  From what I hear, they train pretty much like horses, just the tack is different than horse tack because of the straight back, but other than they won't step where it's dangerous to them, they're good hardy mounts.

We have a baby mule that will be up for sale in April or May. He was born in Oct. he is male not cut yet. I know nothing about mules or how to train them, but I know he needs a good home to go to. Message me is interested.

Oh yes, I was just reminded that my "princess" mare is not too fond of her because Martha mule refuses to acknowledge her as "her highness" like everybody else does. According to Martha, mules rule!

Well, some days I would say my Martha is stubborn, but that's just when I get frustrated with her. Since it's after the holidays, I am planning to devote more time to starting her to drive. She picked up round pen work sooooooo easily altho' I don't do much nor for very long. She wears tack with no problem, but I don't have a harness small enough for her so I guess that may be in the budget soon. Everyone who meets her just falls in love with her, even with all her little "Martha-isms" like pushing on gates and being a little pushy in general. She has become such a love!

We have two Mules in our herd of animals and I have been around them a lot when I was young. My Dad always told me that there were two kinds of Mules in the world Damn good or damn bad. Lucky for us the two we have are good. Well not just good but great. Duchess is 16.3 hands and about 1500 lbs and just as sweet as she is big. Smokey is 15 hands and a real go getter. He is a great ride.

I believe if you breed a good mare  for a mule you will get a good mule. That said I am breeding my mare Sadie to a spotted jack this spring.

Sorry Iam so long winded but I do like them long ears.

I always hear, "If you ride a mule, you'll never go back to horses".  Well here I am for the truth of this tale.

I'm partial to the Gaited Horse, for its smooth ride, and hear that there are Gaited Mules.  If anyone in Northern or Central VA knows where I can 'test ride' one I'd appreciate the information.

I had always wanted a mule so finally last summer I fell in love with Martha and bought her. She is only two now but I am loving her personality. I wouldn't say she is "stubborn"at all....just opinionated and smart as all get out. I can hardly wait until she is old enough to drive and ride!
