Mule Tales

Mule Tales are a regular feature on Mulography, and now that I am gathering quite a few I thought it would be useful to have a master page where they could all be found. I also figured it might be handy for people to see, at a glance, which Tales came from which part of the world!

If you would like your mule to be featured, or if you have a mule story that you would like to tell, then please contact me either via this blog, message me on my Mulography Facebook page, or email me at: herecirm (at) gmail.com. I would particularly like to hear from UK and European mule owners (purely because Mulography is about owning a mule in the UK), but am very happy to take worldwide submissions!
