1. I admire the mule. In fact, I own two. Here in Walker County we have paid homage to the mule by erecting statues of him all across the county for his role in helping establish the area through his role in farming, logging, and mining.

  2. Awesome I love history. I now have this website on my favorites. Thanks Angela

  3. My grandfather was a West Georgia mule trader.

  4. My family once owned a mule named Nell, she was very tall and three of use could ride her. We had to stand on the end of the wagon just to climb onto her back. Nell was used to plow the 15 acre garden and to round up the dairy cattle. We had two horses for rounding up the herd, but preferred Nell, with her wide back and more ‘even-trot’…. fun times I miss quite often…But ain’t it grand to have all our memories.

  5. I have a very old picture of my papa, when he was 20, next to a mule. Taken about 1915

  6. My uncle Jim lived in Newton, AL. He was a horse and mule trader/salesman. In the ’50s when I was a child, we would come up from Florida to see him. He would “give” me a horse. On the next visit, I would look forward to seeing my horse. Well…my horse would be gone, but he would “give” me another one. It took a little while before I caught on. Good memories.
