What would you like to know about mules? I don’t know much but I will answer any question you have! I am currently waiting for one so you tell me the gestation. Some books say depends on if it is a john, or a molly; some say it takes a few days longer in Jan – march and less in April to June. Some say it depends on the phase of the moon; and one book says a draft mule will be born between 11 and 14 months. I am sure that is true.March 24, 2013 at 2:10 pm #77888Tom SParticipant
All I have ever had are riding mules. I have a 6 yr old molly and two johns, one 4 and the other 7. They were born on my place. I have raised several. I have been around mules for about 12 years. I am not a teamster so I can’t help you on driving them, but if I can answer any questions about them, let me know.
