SaMule: The Worthless White Mule
by: Schmid, Diana J

This is a true story. I had long searched for a young, white mule to raise and train and was expecting to find one around six months old. When I did finally find one he was a newborn and being sold along with his mother. They were consigned to a Fox Trotter sale that was coming up in a couple weeks. I was not interested in the mare and did not attend the sale. Little did I know, the owner had decided her baby was a worthless, white mule and may hinder her sale. He left the little, three week old mule to fend for himself, alone on pasture, and sold the mare. As soon as I found out his plight I raced over there and paid a steep price to rescue a weak and starving, six week old, orphan mule. Years later, wanting SaMule to get the best in training, I thought I had found a top notch trainer in Kentucky. I had even taken a trip there to see his facility and meet his staff. I was so excited about the prospect of finally being able to ride my dream mule. I had done all his ground work and knew he was ready for a real education. I was thrilled the day they picked him up and he was headed for Mule School. Five months later he was returned to me nearly starved to death and covered with welts and wounds. Once again I had paid a steep price… and so had SaMule. Is he worthless? I think not! SaMule has proven himself to be kind, brave, determined, and forgiving. Color photos. 21 pgs.
