For sure on the jogging thing.
I have mules I pack.
I'm looking for a good riding mule that isn't old. :) (Ain't everyone)
We ride in the hills weekly, but at 52 I don't necessarily want to do the whole training thingy......again.
As it stands I'm just finishing the 4 year old horse I ride.
Once I'm done with it it will be passed down to my 10 year old son, his horse will be passed down to his younger sister, and dad will need a new ride.

In other words 7-10 years old with most of the bad habits ridden out of it? What about size? Use to never think there was such a thing as too tall till I got acquainted with that black mule. He's rite at 17 hands and at 6 feet tall I don't attempt getting on him from a position of a vertical disadvantage.  :o

LOL.
One of the best mules I owned was a legit 17.
Tall skinny black rawboned saddle mule I called Walker.
Picked him up in Salmon from a guy that use to hunt rattlesnakes off him along the main river.
Say "foot", tap a leg, and Walker would lift that foot.
His one bad habit was jumping fences. :)
If he was in love or hungry he could easily walk up to a 5' tall fence flat footed and clear the top wire/board.
He was awesome but is pushing daisy's behind the barn now.

Honestly I'm looking for something 15-16 hands, saddle broke, well behaved, bridges, water, loads, clips, easy to catch, not spooky, easy keeper, Red, Black, or Bay.
You know what I want as much as you ride the woods.

I'm in no rush but as mentioned in the next year my 8 year old daughters trail horse will be the old horse out which forces a rotation of the critters.

I normally ride in the woods with a group of crabby old mule skinners and each one is pretty particular about their animals. :chuckle:
Even when my dad was in his 50's he wouldn't ride a tall animal and they had to be on the slender side otherwise it'd play hell with his hip, especially in November packing elk. Just making sure you were just looking for the perfect mule, not the extra perfect kind. I'll ask around.

That'd be one way to put it. Got rained on both days and had enough trees to cut I was soaked from sweat as well. It's a lonely and beautiful area though.

Looks fun as hell!!
Gotta love lonely.

I don't go to see trekking poles and dreadlocks.

Did you have someone for the other side of that saw?

That's awesome. Thanks for posting the pictures.

Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.
