Update 5/2014 - Lilly is getting started under saddle!
Lilly Mule - A Truly Gentle Giant
After Elk Camp 2013, Harris and Susan decided they needed another long-legged mule like Sally; Harris' white gelding, Thunder, simply could not keep up with Sally's pace when covering long trail miles. It was no trouble at all to find a buyer for Thunder, and then the search began for another draft mule. There was that "something" about Lilly that caught a second glance, and so Lilly Mule has come to join the herd at Sleepy Creek Farm.
Lilly has arrived just in time for Christmas at Sleepy Creek Farm. She is 9 years old and has been broke to pack. Harris will start her saddle training in the spring. Lilly stands nearly 17 hands high and is, quite frankly, built like a house! Lilly is extremely gentle and nearly apologetic about her size. She is sensitive to pressure, respectful, and simply loves to be handled. We look forward to starting her saddle training and having many adventures together!
