Moose is a 7 Year Old Gelded Mule. I am selling him with his mule saddle. It fits him perfectly!
Moose is a true sweetheart. He loves attention! I have done lots of ground work with him and we have done a lot of library. He is amazing! He is a broke riding mule but I'd say he still is a little green. He would be perfect for an advanced or experienced rider. He moves off leg and is wonderful in the arena. He never bucked or reared. He has been out on long trail rides with his previous owner but it's been a while. I've taken him around our 5 acres and he does good but he could benefit from more hours out on the trails.
Moose is up to date with his rabies and tentus shots, he just got them this summer. He stands to be fly sprayed and brushed. He doesn't mind bathing. Unfortunately he doesn't stand well for the vet and vaccinations. He also is a little funny with his feet, so he also doesn't stand well for the farrier. My guess is its due to past trauma from when he would get his feet picked/trimmed. I have got him to the point where he trusts me to pick up his 2 front feet but have yet to be able to actually pick them. He does let you brush and touch his legs it's just when you cue to pick up his foot he gets anxious. He has moments of "mule sass" and stubbornness but ultimately he is a puppy dog and just longs for a partner to understand him. I have had him since November 2020 and I am getting rid of him due to an improper set up for him. He doesn't get along with my minture ponies and I only have 1 pasture for turn out for all my guys. I have been making do with putting them in separate dry lots for the day but it just isn't ideal. It makes me sad to sell him...he truly is a sweet boy. I'd love for him to go to a good home, someone who understands mules and would be patient to work with him and finish him. He has a lot of potential.
