You leave no stone unturned!
You're spot on with your comments. I get along with mature mules way better than any horse I've ever owned. I wasn't savvy or disciplined to by the better horse. Seemed to favor buckskin vs traits.
The mules I've hung around were from dedicated owners who knew there animals.
Comparing horses and mules is almost like comparing dogs with goats. I trained border collies for years. What could be done with them in minutes takes months with a goat. So lots of time and often.
The closest is the one in northern Utah. Buyer beware, eh? 15 years and nothin' done with him except breed once in awhile. Kind of like a wreck waiting to happen. Just what I don't need.
Thanks a ton.
Oh, any broken bones are on you.
