GSH0090 Lucky Duck
Lucky is a 6 year old gelded mule who has been a pasture pet his entire life. He is sound, though he does have one large knee. He was surrendered to GSH because his previous owner's husband planned on taking him to auction because he and his pasture mate had started chasing the cows. She was able to find a home for her mare, but Lucky was harder place as a pasture pet mule.
When Lucky was born, the breeder was going to put him down because he had an undershot jaw and crooked legs. His previous owner said, no - let's wait and see if he grows out of it. She took him as a weanling just to keep her mare company (that is why he has never been broke). And he did grow out of it - he has an excellent bite and his legs straightened up. One of his knees is bigger than the other though - she assured me that the vet said it was fine, only looks odd. He definitely wasn't lame or favoring it and it felt fine when I palpated it - just bigger than the other.
Congratulations Samantha on your adoption of Lucky aka Ducky!
