Following are some other internet resources (links) related to mules, horses, packing, camping that we have found helpful and would like to share with you also… (links will open in seperate windows)

Mules (and horses) for sale:

Zinkel Long Ears & Pack - Rhonda Zinkel - Far N. California
Anna & King We often have a few quality mules and/or horses for sale, which have been raised and trained with good solid "natural horseman methods. Most of the animals that we offer for sale, if they are old enough, have often been out on the trails in our local Wilderness Areas, so are accustomed to the big wild world out there and take it in stride. Please visit us for more info and pictures. The link to the "Mules/Horses For Sale" page is at the bottom of our home page.
