Size: 13hh (52"or 4'4")
Colour: Chestnut Bay
Remus in the Yard
the Stable Yard
Remus is the bigger mule.
He is bright chestnut with black mane, tail and legs and four white
socks, all different lengths. He has one black hoof, one white hoof and two
His father was a wild donkey from Bodmin Moor and his mother was a dark
brown hunter mare so we don't know how he came out chestnut! Still, he is a very handsome boy
particularly when he is
dressed up in his smart bridle.
He has a short frizzy mane which looks very neat although we don't do
anything to it.
Remus is big enough for small adults to ride so we use him to escort good
donkey riders on long rides and children often ride him when they have grown
too big for the donkeys.We also ride him bareback when herding the donkeys
to the field in the evening.
We don't use him for donkey rides as he is more lively than the donkeys
and takes fright at scary things.
Remus likes being brushed and fussed over and doesn't mind being ridden
He is devoted to Giffy, the smaller mule, and hides behind her when they
are out on a ride because he is scared but.... in the field he chases
the donkeys because they are smaller than he is - the big bully!
