I saw this man and his mules in San Diego a few years back.  I don't think he's asinine at all.  A sweet old guy, not hurting anyone and living the way he wants.

I think you may have missed subby's intended jokes. Understandable, since, as I understand it, 'mules' don't qualify as 'asses'; those are donkeys.

There ought to be a law, that man has to live in a stucco McMansion on a stamp sized lot, as it is the only way to be happy.

Yeah, hopefully that's what subby had in mind, because I saw nothing in the article that would make me think poorly of the man, he not only seems happy and content, he seems to have life figured out a lot better than most of us.

Otherwise, the tag should be for subby.

Asinine Tag?

/mules?

If you ever get a chance to win the favor of a good mule, you'll never want a horse again. Mules are fantastic. More loyal than a dog, smarter than most people, have vision/eyesight that allows them top see all flour hooves; consequently they're supremely sure-footed and if they think they're in danger there's no budging a mule .. which means you won't be in danger.

Fast, smart, strong and loyal. I love mules.

A few years back, some cowboy rode his horse and a pack horse up thru the mid-pennisula region between San Jose, CA and San Francisco... he had been riding a few months or so, so his horses were muscular and without excess fat... Some big nosed A$$hole called the SPCA on him for starving his horses and mistreating them... wasn't till later that people in the know, told all those mini-executive Ranch house horse lovers, that is what working horses look like; not the fat docile ponies penned up in mini-barns who only get ridden 2x a week by 13 yr old princesses... learning to live on your own, away from busy-bodies/ big noses/ neighborhood gossips is a fine way to live.

Living outside with livestock wouldn't work too well for 80% of the country right now...

This guy seems happy, and good for him.

Little-known fact: he earned the nickname 'Mule Man' not because of his animal companions, but because of the size of his penis.

"mule man" -- is that kind of like a donkey girl?

Why the asinine tag?  Because subby doesn't like his life style?
 
2014-01-17 12:57:06 AM  
Well, that's one long commute to Los Angeles from this supposed "LA suburb", even if you trade in the mules for a car.
 
2014-01-17 01:02:24 AM  
Ok but did the photographer have to make him look like a mule-man?
 
2014-01-17 01:24:09 AM  
I see subby is one of those that think anything within 100 miles of LA is a "suburb"
I mean fark, it's not even in la county...
 
2014-01-17 01:24:18 AM  
You want a good riding mule? Get a gaited one. They're usually 1/2 Tennessee walker or Racking horse. They're smooth-riding, gentle & sensible. I used to show one for a friend. She was gorgeous.

Nah I don't think that works for the guys that have their shiat together. By all accounts, he chooses to live this way. A "bum", on the other hand, u
Is usually waiting in line in front of subby's mom's house....

You couldn't be more right. I've had four mules during my lifetime. They'll follow you around like a good dog and damn sure let you know if something is wrong. I had an ol' girl bite me one time to keep me from walking into a snake den. I didn't realize it at the time what she was doing because as you said, she wouldn't move at all. I should've known something was wrong, but being me, I just thought she was being her old stubborn self. It wasn't until I took a few steps away from her and heard the first rattle, that I realized what she was doing. I was damn mad at her, I still have the scar on my shoulder, but I'm damn glad she was there. We went back and pulled 17 rattlers out from under that rock.

If a majority of the residents commute to LA Metro area, it's an LA suburb. Now what is LA metro, all of OC, and half of Ventura, according to the census.

Maybe you can correct me on this one, since I've never owned either, but "that old girl" must have been a hinny, not a mule. There are no female mules. They are all sterile males, the offspring of horses and donkeys. If the offspring is female, it's called a hinny.

CSS:
I met "Mule" a few months ago. His three mules were being kept at an animal shelter in the Bay Area, which I worked at, while Mule was in jail. (Later in court, he was quickly deemed not guilty, and was free to go on his way.) On my way to work that morning, Mule was outside the front gate of the animal shelter where he had spent the night with his three mules on the neighboring barren crop field. I spoke with him for just a few minutes and wished him safe travels and happy trails. Donations from community members paid for the impound fees for his mules. For the week or two that the mules were boarded at the animal shelter, each was housed in her own large stall and was fed twice a day, and all of Mule's belongings were accounted for and remained untouched.

One of the mules, "Pepper," has recently been retired and now lives on a farm in Southern California. A replacement mule didn't work out, and Mule is still looking for one.

Got that wrong. Female mules are "mollies" usually; hinnies are a diiferent hybrid with a donkey mother and horse father. So mules are supposed to be what you call the males but I suppose that's used for females as well.

The automobile is literally seizing all the space. The outdoor places to stop and rest are disappearing so fast.

So everyone should replace their car with two horses since they don't take up any space

It seems, these days everything west of the Mississippi is considered "LA" or one of its suburbs.
