I go on a lot of wagon trains during the summer and end up camping in a variety of places. One particular night last June we were in a very muddy field and my mule must have decided she wasn’t interested. When I went out to feed them in the morning she was laid out on my flatbed trailer on her hay. I snapped this picture when she jumped up to eat her grain. It’s not the best because it was at dawn and on a cell phone camera. Of course being a mule once they learn how to do something they continue to do it and finding a mule escaping muddy footing by flat bed is not an uncommon sight anymore. I’ve yet to find two mules in the flatbed which surprises me because it seems like my mules have a monkey see monkey do philosophy.November 30, 2010 at 11:56 am #63559RodParticipant

She looks like you startled her! The more I read about mules and watch my mule learn new things, the more I love them.
