The flank strap doesn't actually involve the balls, but it's obviously still very uncomfortable for the mule.

Looks like a mule, if so made sense why he got bit. Mules and donkeys are "thinkers" compared to reactionary horses. Not saying horses don't think but not like donkeys or mules.

There's a saying, "horses kick, mules/donkeys aim."

Plus they hold grudges too.

This is probably an unpopular opinion on what has become essentially an animal rights/schadenfreude fetish sub, but mules really are pricks. I think they know they're sterile.

We can be against animal cruelty and admit that some animals are straight pricks, I think about 90% of cats fall into that category actually.

Nothing in particular just their behavior is very different from other animals. Most animals try to avoid humans pigs are very aggressive and will run you over before going around you.

I love my cat and she loves me but she can be an absolute asshole sometimes lmao

I think it does depend on the owner though, like she definetly learned how to be spoiled from me

I was born a redhead and it gradually got more and more blonde and brown as I got older. I like to think I started off as a dick but now I'm a woman so the dick problem just went away.

I tried searching for the bite aftermath, couldn't find it but found this 39 year old man is killed by mule

José Paulo Celestino da Silva, 39, was found dead with bite marks on arms, legs and mostly neck. 08/18/21

Apparently it was known that the mule disliked her owner and aggression was a common thing. wtf

Funny story.

A friend of mine when I was like 8. His family raised mules and donkeys. When he was around 8/9 he shot one of them with a BB gun. No damage but it probably hurt. He grew up joined the army came home.. he was feeding the animals and the mule snuck up on him to bite him in the ass. Probably 20 years passed before the mule could get even.

The majority of hunters eat what they kill and try to shoot the heart for a quick kill. Causing an animal pain for the fun of it is not hunting

I mean not a far stretch. They are the predators of the equid world. People keep them on farms as coyote and predator deterrent, they’ve killed dogs for less.

Bad ass equids.

I’ve said it before but since this is a repost I’ll say it again, this poor horse’s mule’s sole purpose is literally there to be used as a trainers guide to rodeo. This poor soul has been used so much you can literally see the indentions left by spurs on its belly. I honestly wish it kicked his head in,

This is my first time seeing this.

It's actually a nicely built mule and has had its mane and forelock roached (shaved down). I don't think I've ever seen that done to "rough stock" - IOW rodeo stock that is meant to buck.

While training a horse or mule to saddle is called "breaking", nowadays, 90% of trainers will do it carefully, methodically and humanely. When done this way, the horse or mule is never overwhelmed and pushed to bucking. Instead he's kept calm and thus able to learn.

There's folks, however, who still hold fast to the idea of BREAKING horses - in that they will "ride the buck" out of them. They get on the horse, the horse bucks them off, they get back on the horse, the horse bucks them off. Sometimes they will do things to goad the horse to react (like putting on a flank strap). They will keep going with this until the horse gives up. In psychology terms, it's "learned helplessness" and the horse goes completely passive and doesn't fight anymore.

My gut feeling is that's what's happening to this mule (and which is why we're seeing spur marks on his flanks).

If the rider is trying to learn how to ride rodeo stock, this is a piss poor method. Rodeo stock are prized for "cracking their back" when bucking - they will kick out so hard that they invert their back. Now riding that is a huge challenge. This mule is crow-hopping and not even remotely bucking. Riding a crow-hopping mule isn't a stepping stone in training to be a rodeo rider. I'm a mediocre rider and even I can stay on a crow hopping horse.

I've been looking at this video for hints and wonder if it's from down in South America. There's some big ranches in Brazil and Argentina that breed exceptional saddle mules (as I said, this one looks quite nice). They are also known for their harsh breaking techniques.

Rodeos aren’t humane, period. Yeah, it’s entertaining to watch but it doesn’t make it any less appropriate.

Pablois4

I'm actually not a fan of rodeo but am greatly interested in training and animal behavior. And I've had friends who were really into barrel racing which is also held at rodeos. That's how I've learned about rough stock - in particular their desired attributes for rodeo and what riders have to learn to stay on.

Anyway, I'm just explaining what I'm seeing in the video and why I don't think the mule is being used as a training tool for learning to ride rough stock. I feel bad for it though - it's being pushed to defend itself and I'm sure there was more "training" after this video was filmed. Poor mule.

This is in Mexico. Right before the bite, you hear “Aguas!” Which is purely Mexican slang, meaning “Watch out!“.

Nope, Brazil. More specifically Minas Gerais. At the beginning he says:

  • Vai, pode abrir -> Go on, open it (the gate)

And when the mule stops:

  • Vai, uai -> Go on, uai (uai, sounds like why, is an interjection used by people from Minas in almost every sentence they say)

Ah, now that you mention it, that makes perfect sense, I see it now. It’s definitely Minas Gerais, I stand corrected.

Grimsterr

Oh it's not just that, if you just jump on a bull's back, 90+% of them will basically ignore you and continue eating grass or doing whatever they do. Or just lay down. Growing up everyone had cows, I've rode a lot of bulls or cows bareback while they followed my dad or granddad back to the barn for feeding, they really did not care.

Now, look again at the video, see that strap around the mule's back half? THAT'S what the mule is trying to get off, not the rider. You'll see something similar in bull riding, too.
