Marty (and my ensuing mule obsession) came into my life five years ago, on April 13th 2014! I’m very glad he did, although there have certainly been times when I’ve raged, cried, and tried to sell him. We’re in a pretty good place right now, but I haven’t forgotten the difficulties we had to go through in order to get here and I won’t take what we have for granted.
I thought I’d do a post featuring some video highlights from the last five years:
Marty forgets his tongue (2015)
That time one side of our track was haunted (2016)
Teaching Marty to recognise words (2016)
Marty’s major life accomplishment (2017)
Marty and Cash playing in the arena (2017)
The donkey mask (2017)
National Unicorn Day (2017)
Marty leaves the yard for the first time in a year (2017)
The mules learn dressage (2018)
A week ago, Wallace The Great made history by becoming the first mule EVER to compete (and win!) in British Dressage. It's been absoloutly fantastic to see the increased interest in mules following his achievement – they deserve to be recognised!Anyway, some of us may have got carried away by the whole excitement of it. Here is a stupid video what I made. Mules learn by watching others, right?
