Cherry

Sorrel molly mule foaled sired by Top Gun and out of a bay Rugged Lark quarter mare. Cherry is a good, honest, broke mule. She has been shown, trail ridden, worked cattle, anything you ask. She won the overall hi-point 2 consecutive years at IDMS. She's pretty enough to win a halter class and broke enough to do anything you ask of her. Cherry side passes, backs, neck reins, loads in the trailer, stands for the farrier and for clippers. She needs more of an advanced rider as she has lots of cues and is very well trained.
 Cherry is for sale and is owned by John and Deb Strable, IA. Contact us for more information.

UPDATE: We sold Big Wheels as a yearling to Todd Cordonnier (Missouri). Todd has done a fine job training Big Wheels and has been showing him at mule shows and really has him riding good, nice and quiet. Todd is offering Big Wheels for sale and here's what he has to say:
I appreciate your help in selling Big Wheels. He is going to be missed and has become a fixture in the family but we are going down different paths and he is way to good to stand around in the pasture. He is the first one to the gate and loves attention. He trail rides great will go anywhere you point him. He is a great mule and will just continue to get better. I chased the calf roping dummy this week and he even cowed up to it, pinned his ears and tried to bite it. No problem swinging a rope off him and he didn't try to step off. I just used a breakaway rope. He will do anything that is asked of him. Thanks for your help. ~Todd
I watched this mule be shown at the IDMS show in August. He rides nice and quiet and does everything Todd asks and does it willingly. This mule's siblings are awesome riding mules and he will be as well. Don't miss this mule! He will make a GOOD one!

Pixel pleasure Pixel Halter
Photo taken August 2009

Black molly mule sired by Copyright. Pixel is a people loving mule! She will meet you at the gate every time. Pixel will go where you point her on the trail and is also very tuned in leg cues. She backs, side passes, counter bends, opens gates, pivots off hind and fore quarters and is ready to please. Chris put 8 months of training on Pixel in 2009 and we had some problems with her hip movement. We've taken her to the chiropractor several times and he says she will grow out of it. After 9 months in the pasture with no riding last winter and spring our 7-year-old nephew wanted to ride Pixel. We put him in the roundpen with her while our niece rode my broke mule. Within 5 minutes he was trotting her all around playing tag. She rides good whether it's every day or once a year. We do not encourage long, hard rides at this point until she recovers completely.

This mule moves like a magic carpet and is going to make an awesome pleasure mule. She's really kind and moves well off leg cues. Flashy side passes, backs, counter bends, pivots off hind quarters and fore quarters, takes her correct leads, and will do trail obstacles at ease. Flashy has a soft mouth,  is a looker in the show ring and has one of the nicest necks you'll see on a mule. She also is an exceptional trail mule and will cross water, mud, etc, all at a walk. Flashy took her first trip to the mountains this past summer (2010) and rode like a 10 year old. She is just fantastic at everything she does! We will continue to ride and train her until sold and the price will continue to rise.
