How We Met

Buttercup used to be a pack mule for elk hunts in Colorado. She moved to Arkansas and developed grass founder on fescue. She was unproperly medically treated (never saw a vet). Her tail was 14" of a huge, hard tangled knot of neglect. Thankfully, she was given to me by someone who was going to "shoot" her as a last resort, rather than put her thru a sale barn! Now, Buttercup is on the road to recovery in a loving, caring home. Now we trail ride and have fun. Scroll down to check out more photos below!.

Bless You
I wish there were more people out there like you and I. Your Buttercup is such a cute little molly. She looks very relaxed and happy with you in the pictures. I bet she is thankful that you have become her gardian angel. Best Wishes! Got my vote.

Buttercup!
She is so adorable. Anyway, I have been chatting away with Festus's owner, and she told me to ask you about mules. And since you own two, I thought I would. She has told me that they have great personalities and (don't tell my horses) they're smarter than horses. Well, maybe you could say they just have a little more common sense. So, your thoughts on mules? Thanks!

Festus is a mammoth mule, his mom is a belgin and his daddy his a mamoth donkey. Festus was trained by some prisoners some where in Kansad, when people ask where he came from their faces are pricless when we tell them that he came from jail.

Hello
Buttercup is really pretty. She has more horse features that most mules I've seen. And I like her multi-coloured tail. We have a lot of mules in our area and some of them are huge. Their heads are about two feet long!

She may get pasture mates!
Buttercup may get two mules here to herd around with. Hopefully all works out well & they'll come live with us. Two 16hh 20 year old mules, same colors as Buttercup. Sweet as can be.

what a cute mule
thankz for the comment on question. when i was gone, we had some road construction people going in and out of the pastures, and the men were living the gate down driving over it and not putting it back up, so while the weren't paying attention, the horse got out and he'd gotten into some horse feed, about 2 sacks, and then got into a wheat bin full of rotton wheat, and he'd been out for a least 2 hours. the vet said that he was ruined, but i'll ride him sometimes, but he's not the same horse, he's got his bad days and good days, but he gets massages and i'll stretch his legs some to keep him in shape. You should come and check out my mule.
