The mule horse for sale is an animal that a lot of people have heard about, but many people do not know how mules are made. Well, mule horses are the offspring of when you mix a male donkey with a female horse. From time to time, you can find a male horse that has mated with a female donkey, and that is called a hinny, but that is very uncommon. That is because the mule is a lot more easier to breed than a hinny. A mule is an animal that is normally going to weigh about 800 to 1000 pounds. The funny thing is that mule horses do not sound anything like a horse or a donkey, despite the fact that those are its parents. In fact, a mule has more of a whining noise that it makes. People say that it sounds like it starts off with a whinny noise and usually ends with a hee-haw. In a few cases, you can even have mules that will whimper instead of whine. As you can guess, the coat of the mule actually varies a lot. In fact, most mules are going to be based on the different varieties of horses.

So why do people like mules over other animals? Mostly because the mule is an animal that has sobriety, and patience. Not only that, but they are very sure footed. In fact, that is why a donkey and a horse were mixed. The mule is sure footed like the donkey, but it has the strength and the courage of the horse, which the donkey does not have. Usually, mules only work as working animals. In fact, a lot of people prefer to have working mules than horses. That is because the mule is an animal that shows less impatience under the pressure of very heavy loads. Also, mules have a lot tougher skin than horses, and thus, do not get hurt as easily. The good news does not stop there for mules, however. They also have harder hooves than horses, and they are naturally resistant to things like insects and diseases.

Thus, it seems like mules are better in just about every way. However, there are a few things that make horses better than mules. For example, the mule is an animal that is generally less tolerant towards dogs. Horses seem to get along well with dogs, for some funny reason. That is why horses and dogs can hunt together. However, the mule does not like dogs and usually cries a lot when they are around. Almost to the point where it could drive you crazy. Mules also have a bad habit of being able to strike out with their hooves in any direction. Horses are known to be able to do that backwards and that it is. However, mules have the ability to do that in any direction, and that includes sideways. They normally do not do that to humans, but they will put a dog in their place really fast.  Overall, mules are great to have around the farm to help you. However, if you are looking for something fast to ride on, the mule is not for you. It would be better to stick with a horse.

The mustang horses for sale grew popular in North America after Spanish explorers introduced them in the 1500s. Although, the population of mustangs decreased drastically after the Anglo explorers arrived in the 1800s. Mustangs were still being over hunted and nearly became extinct in the 1960s. In 1971, the mustang gained federal protection under the Wild Free-Roaming Horse and Burro Act. That act outlawed hunting, capturing, and branding any kind of wild horse in the United States. This law has been removed since then and mustangs are no longer protected.

Mustang breeds usually live in herds that consist of one male and eight females with a number of foals. At age two, male foals will be driven away by the males. Each mustang herd will inhabit its own territory! The mustang develops a low-nutrition diet made up of juniper plants, sagebrush, and coarse grasses. They have learned to survive because they know to dig around water holes and smash frozen streams for water.

Mustangs breed between April and July. Pregnant mares then leave the herd to find a closed and safe place to give birth to the foal that next Spring. Mustangs can be a variety of colors such as; brown, bay, black, and gray.  They are usually between 13 and 15 hands tall. This breed of horse is very gentle and are highly intelligent!

A mother and her children were driving the country roads in their hometown and passed a herd of horses. One of the children yelled, “Mom, STOP!” She slowed down the car and asked what was wrong. The young boy asked, “Why does that horse stand out?” The mother laughed and said, “Sweetie, that is a Palomino horse and they almost always stand out when they are around other horses!” Palomino horses for sale are one of the prettiest breeds of horses! But did you know that it’s really not a breed and that Palomino is just a color? They range in color from a dark gold to a light taffy, but always have a flaxen or white mane and tail. A Palomino can be any type of breed but to be registered with the Palomino Horse Breeders of America, they must have the Palomino colors and must stand 14 to 17 hands tall. They may also only have white on them below the knee and face!

Where Palomino’s come from is unknown, however there are paintings that believe they come from ancient Europe and Asia. Queen Isabella was said to have a hundred Palominos in the royal stable, and at that time nobody was supposed to own one. History says that she sent a Palomino stallion and five mares to what is now Mexico. They then started moving North into Texas and California.

Today, there are many different horse shows and competitions for only registered Palomino horses. The biggest event for Palomino horses, known as the PHBA World Champion Horse Show, is held every year during July in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  Each year around 850 horses and their riders from the United States, Canada and Mexico compete for prizes totaling $500,000.

Palominos are greatly appreciated for their agility and versatility. They make wonderful ranch horses and can be used for trail riding, showings, jumping, and just to have a horses!  They are very easily trained and can be taught to do some tricks. If they have been treated well, they will love people and show a lot of affections. Palominos are  a favorite of horsemen because their beauty causes them to stand out among the different horse breeds and they easily become their owner’s best friend.

Caspian Horse Breed

The Caspian horses for sale are the most ancient breed of horses today. This breed is over 5,00 years old and was once nearly extinct. This rare breed was no longer extinct after Louise Firouz came across this horse on the Caspian Sea in 1965. At that time they believed there were only a total of 50 Caspian horses along the entire coast of the Caspian Sea! The Caspian breed is a very unique and is one of the most gentle  Equine breeds. They make the perfect horses for young children or adults with little to no horse riding experience at all. Sometimes Caspian horses are mistaken for ponies, for they are basically a miniature horse that stands 10-13 hands tall, fully grown.

One amazing thing about this breed is that they do not need to be shoed due to the shape of their hooves. They only need minimal grooming and no serious common health problems have ever been reported. Even with their different structures compared to other horse breeds, they can live up to 25 years old. They are very sociable and get along with other animals!

The first U.S. breeding program opened in 1995. Considering the current world wide population is now at about 900, the establishment was a huge success. However, this still leaves this ancient breed still on the “Critically Endangered List.” Anyone searching for a horse for themselves or children should highly consider adding a Caspian to their family. Don’t let their small size turn you away, for they can hold adults and heavy loads! Choose Caspian, and you’re definitely choosing the best!
