Life on the farm...
Heart and soul.
I never realized how beautiful a mule can be.
And then I met - Pete the Mule.
One look into his eyes and I could see a kind and generous soul that had seen some tough days gone by.
Retired now to a loving home and living on a farm outside of Cooperstown NY.
A Mule is a hybrid animal.
A Mule is the offspring of a male donkey and a female horse. Mules are sterile and can not breed.
" Stubborn as a Mule" is an often used phrase in society & know to be completely incorrect among any handler of working animals.
Mules are commonly used on the farm as they are often preferable to horses due to the fact that they are stronger than a horse their own size.
Mules have more endurance, more of a sure footing and eat less food - therefore cheaper for the farmer to maintain. This is an important factor in agriculture and farming.
They are considered to be more patient and even tempered, and less obstinate than one would be lead to believe.
Mules most common coloring is a Bay (brown with black mane and tail or Sorrel (red/rust coloring). Much more rare and a pleasure to be found are the markings of an
Appaloosa, Palomino, Paint, Roan or Buckskin.
Mules mixed with Draught ( draft ) horses on the working farm are the modern day " Beast of burden".
Barnyard and Farm animals.
