Exciting news, especially for our neighbor's Mustang mare. As you can see in the photos, we now have a very recent addition to the neighborhood. This is the mare's second attempt at having a mule foal. She sadly lost the one last year. But so far, so good, with this little guy. For the first 24 hours he had to be separated from the mare. No one was very happy about that. The mare had to be milked, and the foal had to be bottle fed, but the good thing was that there was a lot of imprinting going on in the process. This all made for a very friendly and fearless little john mule.
We are all keeping our fingers and hooves crossed that this year's mule baby stays healthy.
PS...I forgot to tell you that it was born on my mule Polly's 24th birhtday..it's a good day to be born!
