This is why alot of guides use mules , I'd much rather ride an old mule that a horse that I don't know.
I had to make a "twitch" once and have a heart to heart with a guides horse once , the guide wasen't happy but when I informed him that it was either him or the horse he kept quiet. The horse behaved himself the rest of the trip and the guide was amazed.
I still like mules , never had any trouble with one and their a hell of alot more sure footed and smarter than a horse.

JD...Skank actually is (I would like to say WAS) a mule. When I wrote the story I did not think to differentiate. He was good on his feet...just a little "off" in the brain.
