Military mules pt. 2... In the Civil War the Union Army found mules indispensable in getting troops, weapons, and supplies from one place to another. The Army purchaced more than 1 million mules during the war. Part of the reason for buying that many mules was to keep them out of the hands of the enemy. The Union bought all mules, regardless of their suitability, from mule traders to prevent the Confederates from getting them. Mules were preferred over horses because they were less likely to contract diseases or suffer from the harsh conditions of war. An enormous amount of food had to be transported to support the mules, even though they could subsist on less feed than horses, so even more mules were needed to haul the food.
In contrast, Confrederate soldiers had to provide their own mules. And while the South had more mules than the North, they did not have mules to spare, since the mules were also needed on farms to raise food and commercial crops like cotton and tobacco. Without the mules the economy of the South could not survive. The Confederate army began the war with a superior cavalry but was not able to replenish the mules and horses lost in battle. Nor did they have the means to provide hay and grain to feed the animals, since the mules that would normally be used on the farm for harvesting had been commandeered into military service.
However at the end of the war the Northern army had a surplus of mules. General William T. Sherman is credited with promising the freed slaves "forty acres and a mule" an order that was effective for the first year following the end of the Civil war. Have a great day, Joey & Betsy

I'm glad you like reading the mule facts:) I have done a lot of research and my Grandaughter has helped. I've really learned a lot too:)
Cloning: Mules made scientific history in 2003, when the first cloned mule was born on May 4th at Idaho State University. Idaho Gem was also the first hybrid to be cloned. Later two more cloned mules were born. Researchers used a cell from a mule fetus and an egg from a horse to clone Idaho Gem. Later that year Idaho Star was born. Since mules cannot reproduce, cloning gives hope of preserving the genes of outstanding mule athletes. This is especially interesting to those in the mule racing industry, which hopes cloning will make it possible to preserve the genes of outstanding racers. Cloning mammals also offers the possibility of advances in cancer research.
Idaho Gem and his brother Idaho Star were trained for raceing. They won their first race, which was held at the Winnemucca Mule Races in June 2006. The pair placed first and second in a 350-yard sprint, with Idaho Star clocking .027 seconds faster than his brother. Both beat the field of non-cloned mules.
I thought this was interesting and I hope I have not offended anyone. I understand some people has strong beliefs on cloning.
Tomorrow we start on Mules in the military...Thanks to Barbara and Shawnie leaving a couple of blogs about her Father and Uncle talking about their experience with mules in the miitary, I did a little research...tune in tomorrow. Have a great day...Joey & Betsy

What is a hinny?.... The hinny is also called a mule. However the hinny is the hybrid cross between a male horse (stallion) and a female donkey (jenny). The hinny is different from a mule in very subtle ways. For instance, the hinny is somewhat slower and a more meticulous mover than the mule. He inherits his way of moving from the jenny as does the mule that tends to be a little faster, more energetic and more agile like the mare. The hinny, because of of his meticulous way of moving is actually better in very steep, rocky terrain and especially in loose rock and will not tire as quickly as a mule. Gaited hinnies are preferable in this kind of terrain where there is little opportunity to gallop because they have a smooth, more ground covering gait.The hooves of a hinny tend to be more donkey-like, narrow, oval, and more upright where the hooves of a mule will look more horse-like, a little more round, but still oval. On both hinnies and mules the hooves should be trimmed more upright and the heels should be left longer than that of a horse.
The hinny will also eat more different kinds of shrubs and bushes to sustain himself where a mule will be more selective. both the mule and the hinny have more endurance than the horse and are more resistant to parasites and disease, require less food for good health, have tougher hooves than the horse, and have an incredible sence of self preservation often mistsken for stubbornness. The horse has a flight reflex when startled and the donkey has has a freeze reflex;the mule and the hinney can exhibit both depending on their personality and the situation. Have a great day...

Thanks for the vote..I've been leaving a blog about mules each day..I'll add you in:) Happy TGIF...A little tid bit from mules in history.
Mules were used to pull gravity-powered trains up hills in mining regions and to pull street rail cars in cities. James Parker, originally a Cincinnati, Ohio apple farmer, converted his orchards into an amusement park adding a dining hall, dance hall, and a mule powered carousel. In 1886, he sold the park and was called Ohio Grove; later it became known as the Coney Island of the West. The mule-turned merry-go-round was just the first of many rides and carnival games. It continued operation as a park until the 1960s. Have a great start to the weekend. Joey & Betsy
