    Default I do love mules! Sigh.

    It's a good thing this guy is in CO because recession or not I'd have to go check him out. He looks like a big old teddy bear. LOL it's not like I have my hands full riding Fella or anything. I guess I've always been a multitasker!

    Are you surprised I like this tank? http://www.horseclicks.com/horses/38sv1z/

    I swear there is a mule in my future.

    Don't tease I'm in Fayetteville, just over the MD border. In fact my horsie boards in MD.

    I've always wanted a mule and I fear my pockets are going to be challenged in the near future to board both a horse and a mule. I've already asked my BO if she'd board a mule! Heck; my kitchen calendar is a mule calendar!

    If I had my way he'd be at my barn and I'd go camping with him. I'd ride ACTHA with him, and maybe even take him through training level in dressage. A well trained mule will take care of you in a way that horses cannot always.

    How tall is your Donk? Is s/he a mammoth? Those guys can get pretty big. There's a small farm on my way to the barn that has 3 little donkeys and one dark bay mule. I swear I'm at risk for running off the road as I pass by.

    my donk is about 13H......perfect size for me........mule is about 14.2, but skinny-ish..........and she came in this huge halter..........LOL.....it fits the donk perfectly.....
    tobiass and dolorass.......
    i answered a CL ad for a mammoth riding jennet......listed at 2000.00...............the gal emails me back about someone looking at donk , but not willing to meet her price of 2500.00...WTH??.........i mentioned that her ad listed the price at 2000.00..........she got all snarky, and said the donk was worth waaaaaaaay more.....well, good luck with that..

    mammoths are a bit tough to find on the east coast, but plenty are out west.............hey, when you go to CO to get your mule, you can grab a donk for me!
    my mule is nice, but not cuddly like the donk...and now, compared to to the donk and mule, my horses seem , well, sorta silly and flighty.....lol......
    well, it IS a bit of a drive from your location to mine..

    Packing out large game is a definite plus!
