Sammy is a “Legacy” here at Missouri Mule Co.  Born right here, he’s the latest of his full brothers and sisters to enter our saddle training program!  His dam, Cookie , and his sire, Missouri Traveler MyAss, are a winning team.  This cross has consistently produced the kind of mules we’re proud to call “home-grown.” For those of you that prefer mules like Sammy (whose background is a known quantity) feel free to check out our “Playpen” page, which explains in detail the training our young mules receive at birth. Playpen is the platform Sammy entered his trail training from.

Like all his siblings that have gone before him, Sammy has the quick mind, uncomplicated, business-like personality, and overall sanity that we’ve come to expect from his kin. It doesn’t hurt that he’s the perfect size and he’s good looking, too! On the ground, he’s everything you’d expect from one of our mules at this stage in his training. He’s kind, eager to please, loads well, leads and stands tied like an expert. Sammy stands 45 seconds minimum after mounting (safety 1st) He’s got a lot of “try” when faced with new situations both on the ground and under saddle, and is soft and responsive to the bit at all speeds. Under saddle, Sam has the comfortable, easy-to-find, ground-covering gait spread that makes riding gait seem effortless. No fussing around, fiddling with the bit, slowing, speeding up, or half-halts… just ask for gait, and there it is!  There are mules three times his age that don’t have the kind of gait consistency that he had on his very first ride.

Ozark Ridge Runner

Fearless Daredevil Lead Mule -Confident Rider’s Dream!
Leroy is a Bay John Mule with flashy matching hind stockings
4 years old
Tennessee Walker Mare x Gaited Jack
14.3 hands, refined and stylish with gorgeous head.

Right now, this absolute machine of a john mule has everything an experienced gaited rider would want - and I mean EVERYTHING!  The perfect size, the flashy markings, the uncompromising gait quality, the “down and dirty” trail skills… AND something not every john mule possesses - the potential and talent to eventually mature into a solid “beginner-friendly” ride, as well.   At only 4 years old, it’s easy to forget Leroy’s isan't the Trail Bosses Mount that’s going to continue to get better and better.  This makes him a pretty hot commodity for a few different situations.  Many mature riders look for a young mule just like this to carry them through a few decades and into their golden years in comfort, safety and style. Like many of the finer things in life, a good mule only gets better with age! Also, active riding families  with many up and coming young riders like mules like Leroy.  Right now, the adults can enjoy him and put the kind of polish they want on him, and by the time the kids are ready to take their riding seriously, he’ll be ready to step up and take on the youngsters on back country adventures as well.
