I’m pretty late to the party here, but here are some things to consider with mules. The smarter an animal is, the bigger pain in the rear it can be. Mules are very smart. Horses don’t aim when they kick, so they miss a lot. Mules can and will look at what they’re trying to kick. Remember, they’re smart, so they don’t miss much. If you somehow manage to piss off a mule you better take cover. Explosive reactions are the norm with the ones I’ve been around. It really took some doing to get one mad, but man it was something to see when you did. I’ve had a lot of different horses and one team of mules in my life. The mules were smarter, more sure footed, and stronger (pound for pound) than any of the horses. I loved those aggravating little SOB’s.
