He goes anywhere you ask on the trail...it does not matter to him how rough. He has a flaxen mane and tail. He rides alone...out front in a group or in the middle/back...he is happy anywhere.

Little Bit - 10yo John Mule
Little Bit is a 10yo - 14 hand john mule. (NOTE: we have not had coggins pulled since we bought him. We feel he is younger...8yo) We are unsure of what color to call him, but he has a beautiful blaze. Little Bit is easy to catch, groom and saddle. He loves to be caught and begs at the gate if you do not catch him. He is the kind that stands at the gate waiting patiently when you are working outside! Little Bit rides out front, in the middle or rear. He has also been ridden alone. Currently our 12 year old daughter is riding him and is enjoying his willingness. She loves to ask new things of him. Michael and I got a big kick out of watching her work Little Bit in the round pen with her rain poncho. We were not sure if he had ever been ridden with one. After she got finished playing with him, she was swinging it around his entire body. He has been ridden both English and Western. Previously he was jumped and used to pack. Ruth Grace has ridden him on several camping trips and he does great. She has also enjoyed bathing him. He is quiet the ham when you point the water hose at him! Little Bit is going to Southern Illinois to spend his time riding in Colorado and Montana. Hope y'all enjoy him and happy trails!
Gaited Molly Mule
Raven is an 8yo - 15 hand, black with brown point molly mule. Raven is out of a walking horse mare and has a gait if asked. Since she has been at our farm, our son Clay has taken to her and rides her anytime we saddle up. He loves her smooth walk. Raven loves riding in the front which is a big change for our son, Clay. The loser the rein, the lower her head goes and she walks off quietly. If you tighten up on the reins she raises her head and steps off quickly. Raven will also stand to mount off a mounting block. Raven does great with the farrier and stands with ease to trim her mane. She is easy to groom and saddle. She loves attention! Elaine in Meadows of Dan, Virgina, we hope you enjoy her as much as Clay did. He will miss riding her.
