After being told on Friday that the mule needed another 10 days in the vets to treat his eye infection I was suprised to get a phonecall today to say he could come home
confused.gif


To say he is a difficult patient is an understatement
ooo.gif
It would appear that Muley has not endeared himself to our vets and they were eager for him to come home - the sooner the better

So we turned up in our lorry and Mr Worried hid in embaressment
blush.gif
- he thought we looked ridiculous rolling up in the lorry to collect my mum's prize possesion
laugh.gif


Despite asking not to remove his headcollar someone had kindly taken it off, so I spent 30 seconds on the end of a very cross mule while I attempted to lasoe him!

His one redeeming feature is that he does at least load
grin.gif


Arrived back to the field and unloaded a very grumpy, angry and hot mule.

He was very glad to be home and proceeded to beat the crap out of Ron who to be fair didn't exactly looked thrilled to see him.

However as Ron has just turned 1 took some pics so you can see Ron AKA as Ron the Swan - not convinced the transfomration is complete, but he is definitely looking better and has grown into his head.

Everytime he looks better weight wise he grows another foot and looks skinny again! He is entered for Kent so will see how the show pony pans out.

A couple fo pics from this evening
One very cross mule

What an amusing post. I haven't seen previous posts on Ron but he looks like he will grow into something very nice.

One of my mares had a big head at three she looked out of proportion by the time she had grown another 2"-3" she looked really handsome.

Sorry Worried1, but Photo 2 is not Ron, it's an imposter posing as Ron.

The mule is lovely (if you're another mule
wink.gif
), but Ron the Swan is definitely turning into a very handsome chap. And I like the fact that he can gallop, just in case you decide to event him.

Sorry mum, not into mules, although I may have ridden one or two!

I agree with the others in that I think you're going to look back in a few years time and laugh at his baby photos. He is lovely and if he still moves like he did as a foal then you've nothing to worry about.

Ron is is a stunner, think he's going to break hearts when he's 2!

Hello Stranger!!!!

I was only talking to BBs about you yesterday I had no idea you had sold Archie
frown.gif
- sounds like he has fallen on his feet though. Glad Bloss is happy on loan and Jup - I need to see pictures
grin.gif


I hope you are well, and things are OK?

Ron is enormous too! think Me and Mr Worried might need leg extensions

Poor Muley - he is misunderstood
smirk.gif


Ron is looking a bit more horselike and less mule like! Going to bring him home a week before Kent to tart and fart so watch out for some show pony transformation pics.

In the meantime...

Mule for loan, good to load, difficult to catch, worm, lead anywhere he doesn't want to go. Creates havoc wherever he goes, chases dogs and tries to kills them, burns easily but detests sun cream or fly masks. Unbroken, appears unhandled despite having been owned by loving family for 5 years and handled daily.

Any takers
