Our Broodmare Band
Of course, like most people who
get into mules, we started out with horses...many, many years ago. I learned to start a few young horses when I was a teenager...and
always looked for a better, smarter way to do it. Showing AHSA and later Youth Quarter Horse here in Texas, I gained knowledge...but
didn't really learn the right stuff until I attended a Ray Hunt Clinic more than 20 years ago (with 2 mules, of course!)
people are suprised sometimes, I think, about the nice horses we have...but without some great horses, where are you going
to get great mules?
We stood a grandson of King Fritz and have several of his daughters in our broodmare band now.
We have several of my old showmares that also have a new occupation as "mule mommas".
We have AQHA mares (Cowworking
and Reining bloodlines), Appendix (AQHA mares with TB breeding), and two nice paint mares. Also, we have some really good
bred mares for mules - a couple of percheron/TB's, a Shire/TB/QH, a Hanoverian, and a Spotted/Draft/Clydesdale/TB mare. All
these mares have good sound, solid conformation and wonderful dispositions!
Its a pretty sight at Mulehill Ranch
to watch some goodlooking mares and beautiful mule babies grazing and playing!
