A few people have asked how things are going with my favorite mule, who needs a new home. The short answer I don't know. There were some leads up in that area, I don't know if any have panned out. I hope so, but I haven't heard. I appreciate all the offers to help spread the word, and if I can get Sara's owner's permission for that, then we'll do that. I mean, my own contact info isn't going to be of much help, though in the mean time please DO contact me if you just happen to be in the market for an awesome, big, sweet, well-trained, gaited mule.
Why don't I take her? Several factors. One of course is the money aspect of taking on another big critter (vet, farrier, feed), but honestly more than that it's space/setup issue. I've had three horses here before, it's a giant pain in the butt. It's well set up for two. Three's a crowd, and a lot of extra work for me. Plus I have some serious doubts that Sara would mesh well with these two mares I have. It's a strained relationship already between the two of them. But, you know if it came down to the wire that I'm a giant soft-hearted pushover who would do a massive sale of insanely deeply discounted art to raise the money for hauling. As much as I love Sara, I sincerely hope it doesn't come down to that. I hope she can find a good home up there in Wyoming. She loves the trails, she belongs up there.
