New mare had a little surprise for us.

This was the frantic text I got from the lady who was feeding Wednesday when he was born....

She is a little overwhelmed at times, like when all the barn girls want to go see him. And when the vet and the farrier needed to look at him, but other than that she is doing very well. She is more okay with my kids messing with him than anyone else.

He is precious! It won't be long and you'll be needing to speak with your vet about gelding him. That will need to be done when he's less than 6 months old, maybe between 4 and 6 mo. old and before weaning. It's not too early to start a conversation about that to make sure your vet's confident knowing the difference there is with castrating donkeys/mules (there are many) as opposed to horses to make sure he/she can do it with no problems.

Do mules need to be gelded???? They can't reproduce.

The are infertile, but still produce testosterone, so they are gelded to remove the raging hormones and the often bad attitude that goes with those hormones.
