For some time we had been trying to obtain mules for our trekking operation. We had long known about their sure footed, bomb proof temperaments and dare we say it stubborn temperament.
At a military show I was very impressed with a mule called Meg and her owner Andy Smerdon told me that he knew of three that may be for sale. Their owner Mike Poxon had been using them in a Wild West Show and he assured me that they were all trained to ride, pack and drive. What Mike didn’t do was exaggerate their ability, they are quite simply fabulous.
Bess at 16.1 hands is the largest working Mule in UK and pulls a lovely six seat carriage. Libby and May are both 14.2 hands and are a matching pair.
