So we watched very carefully as MH wheeled this contraption in to our paddocks, we were not amused at the thought of having to share our home with such a pretender. Apparently this mule does not require food, water, love or scratches, we have our suspicions that it is an alien!
Roller and I decided to have a closer look at this pretender, admittedly it was about our size and has legs at each corner but we are definitely convinced it is not from this planet. Even Callie the brave sniffed out the pretender and decided that this was not a mule she would be flirting with (must be bad!)
MH decided to try to convince us by taking the pretender on a walk in to the paddock, well it's 4 hoof drive capabilities are rubbish and it seems a little obtuse and is not very forward going, definitely something not right here?
So I left Dragon and Roller to inspect further.... note the swishing tails, they are most certainly sussing out the pretender..
After a while I decided to ask FH what was going on, she is normally reasonably sane although I'm not sure this time!
It would appear that it's ok muleteers, this contraption has been acquired to help with the jobs around the yard, it is a more mulificent version of the wheel barrow and FH tells me that it will be perfect for carrying tonnes of yummy carrots and hay, well ok she actually only mentioned straw and shavings but a mule can dream!
