This weekend we are taking three mules and a Foxtrotter gelding with us for a visit with Burl's family near Summersville, Missouri.   He will be a busy Moose to say the least!  I have been doing much better after the surgery.   It will be a long road to recovery, but I'm hanging in there!

Burl has been doing well down at the Flying R trail ride. He will be home later today and will be filling you all in on how his weekend went! Have a great day~

There are many horse owners that body clip for various reasons. Most horses shed out on their own, but a mule inherits the shaggy coat of its sire, the donkey. Mules need the help of body clipping to shed their winter coats in the spring. There are people who prefer to trim or even remove the mule's mane. This is called "roaching". The term "roaching" goes back to Civil War times. Mules in the U.S. Army would have their manes roached and tails clipped, leaving only a tassel. This method was to easily recognize a new mule and approach it with caution. The term "Shavetail" was given to a mule with a freshly clipped tail. After the mule's tail grew out, it would become a "Bell Sharp" meaning the mule would take its place at the ringing of the bell. Many officers fresh from graduating West Point were often called "Shavetails", later gaining respect and earning the designation of "Bell Sharps". 
If you are a lover of long ears, do you clip or roach their mane and tail?
