|Long Ears used to help prospectors for gold|
It seems that the prospectors were after an entirely different kind of gold, human said they were after Mule's Gold. I was very puzzled? Where was this gold and why hadn't I uncovered it? I make ample attempts at digging up the paddock when I'm finding a place to roll so how had I missed it? Suddenly the first prospector arrived and I kept a safe distance at the top of the hill so I wouldn't have to get close, I'm not as free with my love as Dragon and Roller Polar, you have to actually earn my trust, I'm NOT bought by carrots and cuddles. I watched and could not believe my eyes and ears, these fools were looking for gold in the muck heap!!

|We all stay on guard but we're pretending to eat!|
So the day went on and no less than seven loads of prospectors had been and gone and I was exhausted just watching. Female human and Uncle Human spent all day lugging mule poo around and shock horror seemed happy about it. By the end of the day the significant mountain (a mule's gotta do what a mule's gotta do....) had reduced to a mere mound and human was beside herself with delight, apparently more will be disappearing this week too.

She came to report that I would be first in line for the lovely veg that would be produced using the mule poo fertiliser. I am brayless, how on earth could she think that I would touch that! Yuck! However, if bananas just so happen to be grown with Mule's Gold (human says not!) then I might give it a go ;-)
Til next time Muleteers, remember all that glitters is not gold, it may be Mule's Gold!
