She loves melons and cheat grass but turns her muzzle up at plums. She pulled a 2000 pound wagon 2,500 miles across America. She’s the star and equine power (she considers the term “horse” power degrading) behind the Lost Sea Expedition TV series.
Meet mule Polly.
You’ll learn more about Polly in future posts. For now her 6 Word Memoir would read:
Pulled wagon across America. Still Ramblin’!
Polly and I have been traveling together going on ten years. She’s stuck with me through crazy-hard filming conditions and still meets me at the gate.
Polly is active as ever. At 20-ish (a lady mule never reveals her age) she won third place in the World Championship Coon jump in Raleigh, NC. She kept the orange ribbon and traded the $75 check for some mule chow. She regularly attends Benson Mule Days (4th weekend in September / Benson, NC). Last June she spent a month visiting Colorado as part of the Lost Sea Expedition fund raiser.
While in Denver, Polly even visited the headquarters of Rocky Mountain PBS.
