Below are photos of the rescues during the month of
These lucky donkeys, mules and horses will now be able to celebrate the holiday with their new families thanks to the tireless efforts of our volunteers, the generosity of our donors and the commitment from our followers.
All those below have been adopted with the exception of 2 riding-mules. I think it may take more time for me to convince others of the true value of a good riding mule. Since I am now over 50 and growing tired of riding "Fire-Breathing-Dragons", I find the quiet nature of mules refreshing. They appear to have the athleticism of a horse and the brains of a donkey. I recently wondered
could mules be just like horses
These 4 mules have been to the dark side. Their last owner was a killbuyer who intended to ship them to Mexico. Their ears have been pulled and they have been herded with electric cattle prods. They arrived here, scared to death but quickly learned that I was nothing to fear. Now all 4 follow me around the paddock like ducklings hoping that I will put down the pitchfork and give them the attention they most clearly deserve!
I will keep you posted on my adventures with the mules. In the meantime....
