    Thought I would start this section with a few pics from around the old homestead.

    A little lunch at the Round Bale Cafe with a few goats.

    Those look good. I really liked the mule. Had an uncle that wouldn't let anything is his Tobbaco patch other than a mule. Anything compacted the ground too much

    Donkeys, 1958-61 my donkey katy and brothers donk Pete looked just like these two you have. Loved donks every since. Then we had donk Rosie in 1995-2002 and horse Tobacco.
    Thats a NICE mule you have there too. And of course I love horses. We had to give away our horse and donkey when hubby got injured.
    I don't have to tell you most ferrior don't know how to trim a donk hoof,so that job was mine.

    We've owned a lot of mules over the years. I like them way better than horses. However, the last horse I ever owned, I sold and used the money for wedding rings. iow.... I traded a horse for a woman. Best trade I ever made. That was 25 years ago.
