Gus came from a horse trader who was sending him to auction. I knew little about him other than he was an in your pocket kind of guy. Gus adapted quickly to his new horse and other family members. He was clipped, bathed, trimmed, and ridden without issue. Stubborn as a mule described him, but he was never mean, just stopped and stood until he was sure about what was happening. In fact, after just a few months he was placed in a new home working with a disabled child. Gus was the first mule I have owned, though I have worked with others, and he was a true pleasure. I have never met a more laid back animal. I would recommend trying a mule for anyone who wanted to ride, but needed an easy keeper.
