Mimi's oldest niece, is the mother of Rufus and Dickie. They keep the world in awe of their wonderful animals. You may have ridden one of their mules down the Grand Canyon, or took a ride in a buggy in New Orleans. These wonderful cousins went and got the mules when Katrina hit New Orleans and kept them on their farm safe from harm.
The kitty justice if you have not been acquainted with a mule, you have missed out on a very intelligent creature.

I just came in from clearing about 20 plus feet of fence. I might look funny but it works. Peace

I agree. Peace

Thanks for visiting. Clearing out 20 feet of fence seems like too much work if it is as hot down there as it is up here. We are at 85 at 4:00 PM today. Turned out air on. Tomorrow will be worse.

I like the mules and I like donkeys. A mule is a cross between a horse and donkey isn't it? Or is that backwards?

Lady Di,

The mules are beautiful. When I was young and on the farm, a neighbour had a team of mules that were very smart.

Hope you're enjoying nice weather this weekend. Be sure to take some time for you.

It is hot here but we are just running the ceiling fans and a big fan down the side of the house with the sliding doors wide open. I worked early so I could rest in the evening heat. We had a nice breeze so sitting outside was very pleasant. I believe the donkey is the shire and the horse the mare. Peace

A matching pair of mules is a beauty to see. I think mules temperment and sure footedness makes them special. Pa always had a mule until he moved to his sons farm. I guess that make them even more special to me. Peace
