All bundled up in a stocking cap, you'd think there would be snow and ice instead of green grass and water. :roll:

Size must not matter. The fringe on his chinks almost drags the ground.

Thanks for the photos of blue sky and green grass Soapweed. They give a guy a little hope and encouragement that things will improve.

Hopefully going to test drive a Molly this week-I want be a half ass man just like Soapweed.

Don't forget, "A mule is just as good as a horse, until you need a horse." :wink: Wish I'd heard this saying many years ago. It might have saved me a lot of grief. :)

If you lived closer I'd have you come check out my molly and john mules. The molly is a pretty good looking gal, brown in color, six years old, standing about 16 hands, weighing 1200 pounds, and having a better set of withers than most horses. Her mother was a daughter of Colonel Freckles.

The john mule is gentle and nice to ride. He reins well, and actually has quite a bit of cow sense. He is a ten-year-old sorrel standing about fifteen hands and weighs about 1050 pounds.

Both of these fine animals are for sale.

well your overdue for a canadian vacation-can you rope off either one of them? I've always wanted to ride one just to see what they are like. I saw a suffolk Punch X mule this spring was a pretty darn nice critter.

They were half Percheron-half Quarter Horse, eight years old, and "too much horse for his wife to drive." They brought $1400 each at two times the money ($2800 for the pair).
