Ruby- SOLD to Julie Horsch and Dave Glenn in Wyoming
Ruby is a 9 year old 15hh stunning sorrel mule with white stockings, an dun stripe down her back, white on her tail, and lots of chrome. She is touch control, has a one rein neck rein, she has a great motor, great brakes, and a nice disposition. She is good with her ears, and good for the farrier. She backs up very well, has a nice lope, and very smooth trot. Her color and conformation are to die for. She has been used to work cattle, trail rides beautifully, packs, and crosses water. She is the type of mule that generally makes you walk after her for a couple minutes before being caught but we would definitely not classify her as difficult to catch.
She did have a minor coronary band injury that causes one hoof to grow thicker below the scar. She will always grow a thicker hoof there and because of this regular hoof care is important. We spoke with her original owner and he said this was caused by a barbed wire injury when she was young and had never caused any lameness. Both her veterinarian and farrier agree that with regular hoof maintenance this injury should not cause any lameness and will be cosmetic.
We initially sold her to a family with kids and she was not a good fit for them as she took advantage of the kids by testing her boundaries and trying to get away with doing things her way. She was great for the adults and she has been great with all ability riders on her other than complete beginners. With her lovely handle and experienced rider will enjoy this mule much more than a beginner anyway. Even after 6 months post purchase we agreed to trade them another mule that would be a better fit for them. That is how committed we are to our animals and our clients.
Samule is a stunning 16hh gaited john mule out of Missouri Mule Company’s Jack Missouri Traveler MYASS and a 16hh beautifully gaited tobiano Tennessee Walker mare. He is 4 years old, he is a gentle giant, and the friendliest guy you’ll ever meet. Samule will meet you at the gate, he is easy to groom, picks up his feet nicely, saddles easily, bathes well, and absolutely loves people. His personality will always keep to smiling and laughing. He is a big lovable guy!! He moves very well off leg pressure and neck reins. He is excellent in the mountains and very sure footed. He loads in trailers well and has no vices. He is a big young mule though so he’ll need someone with some experience to keep him going on the great path he is on. He is very careful in rough terrain, crosses water beautifully, and he is not spooky. He disposition is awesome, he is a smooth and super fun ride, very sure footed, and one of the nicest looking mules we have seen, we love his height, and his color is phenomenal! He has a very nice smooth gait and is smooth at all speeds. This is one flashy mule and we get compliments everywhere we go with him! He has never offered to buck, bite, or kick and he loves his ears scratched. He is one of the few mules that we’ve know that really loves to go out on rides and gets vocal when he is left behind. His price will increase with training.
Penny is 16.2hh and 12 years old. This big stunning rich mahogany bay mule with lovely white stockings is as flashy and beautiful as they come. In the summer she shines like a new penny and she is built like a brick house. She is one the most impressive and stunning animals I have ever worked with. She has gorgeous white stockings, great conformation, and beautiful color. She will make you look nice and small while riding her. This mule makes your butt look small! She has excellent feet and does well barefoot. She has a lovely walk, trot, and lope. I have considered keeping her for my personal mount as she is so nice but I only have one butt and lots of animals to train. Not only is she drop dead gorgeous, but she’s a sweetheart as well. She crosses water easily, she is sure footed in the mountains, and she loves attention and praise. She moves beautifully and has a great ground covering walk, smooth jog, a big extended trot, and a nice smooth canter.
Black Rocky Mountain Mare born March 28, 2008 out of Double Take by Yankee Clipper. Since her dam is a daughter of Maple’s Squirrel, and her sire is a son of Yankee, Doublelicious is a double great granddaughter of Tobe, she has a very RARE pedigree! Other notables in her pedigree include Cheek’s Rocky, Choco Dock, King Tutt, Honey, Black Squirrel, Bay Beauty, & Dot-O-White. Doublelicious AKA Cinder has a sweet and gentle disposition, with an exceptionally smooth gait that allows her to move like the wind. We renamed he Cinder because the name Doublelicious struck us the wrong way. We don’t look at a horse and think, man she looks delicious!
