    We have an in-wall doggie door next to the french doors in our dining room. Works fine, it's low to the floor for the convenience of our dogs and the cat (who uses it just fine). Only issue is all...

    Hope you love it! I sure love mine...and so does my mule. Mine is the extra long forward flap. We went through saddle fitting hell until the County rep came out and we put a Conquest on her. As the...

    I don't know where you live but we've bred mini donkeys for over 10 years, with an average of 10-15 in residence at any one time. As long as they have adequate hay and shelter, they do not need to be...

    Trap first, shoot in trap. Lot better chance of getting the job done right on the first shot (as unpleasant as it is to begin with). I have a HavAHeart trap you can borrow. Just give me a call and...

    Was a pretty large bear in my driveway last night :) Hope he doesn't decide to break into the house; I think we'd have a big problem if I walked into the kitchen to find him there. Fortunately he is...

    Those are pretty mules! Em is shaped pretty much like a horse through her topline, with a well sprung barrel and a "sweet spot" just behind the withers where the saddle sits perfectly. I have never...

    Oh yes, the vet. You might find my story about this entertaining:

    Em's one "bugaboo"...she is so fearful of needles. Her breeder told me that she gave shots no problem when Em was a...

    How much work has the instructor done to build your daughter's confidence that she can "handle" an unplanned dismount? Way back when I was in Pony Club, we practiced flying dismounts frequently,...

    Yes, they are creatures who like routine. I have become a creature of routine myself as a result, when handling my mule. I do things in a predictable, consistent way...for example, when I had two...

    Perhaps she doesn't want or need a fan. If it upsets her that much, why worry about why a non-necessary item is bothering her? She'll survive without a fan and since mules are more heat tolerant than...

    I didn't read the whole thread so didn't gather any details about your mule and your situation. Bottom line, mules take time to trust you. And by time, I mean it could be weeks or months before she...

    Wow, both videos are very cool. Being partial to mules, I like the mule one. Just the time to harness up is remarkable. I wonder if they even bothered to unharness them completely every day. And oh...
