All you hunters, use the comments below to share where you’ve gone hunting with your mule or donkey.

Müsli

Say hi to Müsli! Her owner Machaela sent in these photos and shared that Müsli’s mother is an Andalusian mare and the father is an Andalusian donkey. Looks like Machaela has herself a really good buddy.

Three mules with riders in the forest

Lewis, Reliance, and No Name

Say hi to Lewis, Reliance, and ‘No Name’! Reliance is actually a ‘movie star’ — he was used in a past training video for Steve Edwards. Owner, Billie, says that the third mule doesn’t have a name — what name could you think of that would go great with Lewis and Reliance?

Katie the mule

Katie

Say hi to Katie! Micha sent in his pictures of Katie… a mule a bit too feisty for her own good 🙂

Say hi to Tizanes! Süzz sent us this picture of Tizanes, owned by one of her friends in Belgium, and said she is a funny little fjord mule. Süzz’s friend introduced her to mules and rode many longear trails together in the (Belgian & German) Eifel.
