Hi Oliveoil! It has been a wild winter, so I haven't had the time to post much. We still haven't sold our TX ranch, but have finally closed on the WY place. Yes, my good old mule is a jumping mule...or used to be..he is 37 now, still going strong, thanks to Special Senior feed, and constant attention. The 5er now has all sorts of nifty storage spots, under the loveseat in the slide out, under the bed, in the closet up in the front, under the bathroom in the basement, and basically anywhere I can find to shove stuff!!!! The only craft stuff I will have with me is my scrapbooking and rubber stamps and paper for both. I have put everything else into storage. Where are you from that had jumping mules? They are not just real common! Mine is a half-assed foxtrotter. I got him in Missouri, about 20 years ago!! Besides my hubby, he is the love of my life!! Have a great day! Let me know if you are headed to WY...I will be working P/T at a campground there, and I am sure my mule would love to come and visit with fellow mule adorers!! AJ Happy Trails!!

RVmule------- We are in Kansas-------- And we bought our jumping mule in Mo. also----outside of Anderson, Mo. this has been many years ago- We used him for hunting & also we took care of thousands of acres of other people's pasture land & cattle in the Flint Hills of Kansas----- & if I rode my mare on those side hills with flint rock for more than two days her feet & legs were sore--- I could ride Jerry our mule for days on those side hills & on flint rock & his feet & legs never got sore!
I have to tell you a funny story about another jumping mule we had----- I was married & living in another part of the state of Kansas------& my Dad needed help with cattle & pastures--- & called & asked me to come & bring my saddle & help him ride pastures to get caught up-etc/etc--- so I went the night before & my Dad woke me up before sun up- & already had my horse saddled & in the horse trailer for me- & Dad had his mule saddled & also loaded & in the trailer! So off we go to the pastures----- & it is still dark when we get there--& Dad opened up the trailer & asked me to hold on to his mule/ who is saddled & he has a lead rope on him---while he gets my horse out of the trailer for me-------- So he hands me the lead rope to his mule-----& about that time that mule starts to making the most awful noise & puts his head down--& I know we are about to have a rodeo & no tickets have been sold------ I knew if that mule got away from me---- with my Dad's good roping saddle----I would be dead meat------- so I wrap that lead rope around myself looking for a tree to also get wrapped around before the mule takes off------well----toooooooo late---- that mule took off with me wrapped in that lead rope------ & by the time he stopped--- I didn't have a lot of skin left on me!!!!!! Dad comes racing down to where I am --on my mare-----& sees if I'm going to live-----& finds a first aid kit in the truck to doctor me with-------& then Dad said to me-------I forgot my mule doesn't like women----- & I guess I forgot you were one!!!!!!!!!!
Well I rode pastures all that day------& when I got off my horse that night I wished I could die- I hurt so bad------losing all that skin-----banged up & then riding a horse on a lope most of the day checking pastures-when I wasn't use to it---- I thought I was going to die or wished I could have!!!!!!!!! :)
