Mules in the military: Pt. 1 From the time of the American revolution, mules have been useful, even invaluable, to the military. The United States used them estensively during the second Seminole War in the 1850s. Wagons could not be used in the swampy Florida terrain, so instead pack mules were used to transport men and supplies. Mules were also used in the Mexican War and in the Indian wars of the 1800s. The fact that were hardier than horses in harsh conditions, more surefooted in rough terrain, and could survive on less food and water made them more desirable than the horse. It also made them more expensive to purchace.
General George Crook, who had a 38 year career with the US Army, fighting in the Civil war and later in the indian wars, was known for his dependence on the mule to maneuver supplies and men for fighting Indians. Wagons were not as practical as a pack strings. Crook was very paticular about the care of the mules. He ordered that they be packed lighter than regulations called for. He often inspected the mules himself. He prefered small Mexican-bred mules to the large draft types. The Mexican mules had better confirmation, were more sure-footed, and held up better carring heavy loads. He in fact set a standard for civilian packers as his reputation spread. Crook also rode a mule, as did some of his staff. Crook's mule packers get credit for the tradition of shaving green mules' tails so they could be distinguished from the seasoned mules. Today many mule owners choose to shave their mules' tails, not because they are a "green" mule, because they like the way it looks. They shave from the very top of the tail, about 4 inches and leave the rest of the tail long. Betsy's tail was shaved when I got her. It has since grown out. Have a wonderful Friday...Joey & Betsy

Hi, I have a question for all of you: Moses and Goldie have had very bad separation anxiety when separated from each other ever since we got them. We bought them from the same person, who'd had them for a few years, so they have not been separated for at least 5 years or so. We went to our first show with them last fall and it was terrible because they constantly screamed for each other and were dangerously frantic that Goldie actually tossed me off during one of the classes. So my question to all of you is, do you have any suggestions to help Goldie and Moses get over this separation anxiety? We don't have many options because we only have the two horses and can't get any more right now, not even a goat or a donkey. For more details on their reactions when separated just blog me. Thanks so much for your help.

Leavin' a vote for you. I don't know if we will be able to ride today, the thunderstorms are supposed to come in early. Maybe we can at least get a trailer loading trainig session in before it decides to rain on us. We haven't practiced loading yet this year and we really need to with shows quickly approaching.

Thank you so much!
Here's a vote. We had a really good ride today- arena work in the paddock. Goldie and Moses did really well.
I wanted to let everyone know that starting Monday, June 21st, I probably will only be on HC on the weekends. I really hope everyone understands and will continue voting for Goldie (and Moses) everyday. Goldie deserves to win HOTM, she is the most wonderful horse I have ever met. I love her so much.
