Congrats! He's a good looking mule!!! We're thinking of breeding one my big mares to Kilroy. Hubby wants a riding mule that has the personality of Kilroy's offspring. So.....PM me and let me know how you managed this feat!!!!
This is the mare we want to breed him to. She's right around 15hh. Kilroy is only 33"!
I am expecting a mini mule (I learned yesterday, that she probably has 1-1 1/2 weeks to go). But this breeding was done the other way around. A mini mare (black and white pinto) to a full size Jack. (Not by my arrangements, but I am hoping for the best for them).
What a handsome little guy! Of course, Momma's not bad looking, either!
Minimule, there's always AI
The only problem I see is, how big would the baby grow to be? I've heard it's usually about halfway between the parents, although I know mules often get a bit bigger. By my math, Kilroy x your Paint mare is only about 12 hands, give or take a little. While I've no doubt a 12, 13 hand mule could be strong enough to carry most men, it might look a little funny!
You sure got a very nice looking mule out of the cross.
hey Shawna..Nice looking mare, I think I remember when you bought this one. Kilroy and her would have a nice mule together.
.I have the perfect hill leading to the upper part of the barn, with cemented sides that are low...perfect for standing a small jack and a standard size mare. OH! .your welcome to bring them up and use it..Ohhh, and did I mention stay for vacation.
We used it for a haflinger and belgium. The halffie was small and was bred to the belgium mare worked perfect...lol... OH!
