    Yep. I actually do live in Montana, but my aging parents are back in Vermont, so I am there quite a bit. It is confusing! I'll PM you! It might not be what you are looking for for your guy anyway!

    To the OP, there are some good mule groups on Facebook (perhaps you have already posted there), but the other resource is the Yahoo Group Mules Only:

    http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/MulesOnly/

    There are a lot of great people who are active in that group.

    Mules are the best and yours sounds and looks fantastic!

    He is solid for any confident, advanced beginner out on the trails. He clips, ties, trailers, bathes, stands for vet, farrier, etc, etc, etc. Very well-mannered. He's barefoot and sound as a rock.

    His leaser has mostly trail-ridden him, but has done some general western riding/lessons with him in a ring setting. He's a genial guy and will go along with almost any plan.

    He is 100% safe with me, but I have another young project horse and he likes being busy. (Initially why I sent him out on lease.)

    I will get videos/updated riding photos as soon as he's home with me, but here are some photos of the cute guy:

    Lease terms and length of time are negotiable. He will NOT leave my ownership at any point, and goes with a firm contract which is reviewed yearly. (You can speak to his current leaser if seriously interested...I am 100% hands off, and no silly regulations in the lease, but he was plucked from a bad situation and won't end up there again.) But for the right home I will cover some costs/be negotiable.

    He needs to stay in the New England area unless you've got some great references and are in a warm sunny place where I'd like to vacation.
    GoForAGallop - we are in New Hampshire, and looking for a large pony to use as a husband type horse. Is he sturdy enough for an adult? Do you think he would enjoy playing mounted games?

    Hi Go For a Gallop!
    Haven't heard anything from you and we did lose our donkey last week so we are looking seriously at options!

    I am assuming that Henry is established at whatever arrangements and that he is being adored! He sure is cute!!
