Big Girl equine question Try not to laugh . Here is the story, I used to own Quarter/Arab horses many years ago and loved riding and caring for them, kids came along and my horse dreams were put on the side. Fast forward twenty-five years, kids are off living their lives around the world, and my husband and I are talking about getting a horse or mule, maybe even a mammoth donkey in the next few years when we retire to Arkansas. The problem comes with the extra weight I have put on Where once I was a 510, 170 lb triathlon racing brick-house, now I am a 270lb chair sitting pile-o-bricks! While I have had every intention to lighten up, the reality is that it probably will not happen. Do I have to give up my equine dream or will a mule, horse, or mammoth donkey support my size?
