"The Mule Behavior Problem Solver is a compilation of training methods told in the own words of some of the top breeders and trainers America has to offer.  It is a Godsend to those who may have a glitch in their mule (or donkey) and just need a little advice from an expert.  Chock full of photos of the methods in use makes it a great teaching guide and one every muleskinner will want in his or her library!  A hearty well done to all participants!" 

~Deb Kidwell, author, feature writer for Western Mule Magazine and owner of Lake Nowhere Mule and Donkey Farm

"Mrs. Roberts,"  I received the Mule Behavior Problem Solver about a month ago.  Since then I have read it cover to cover twice and some chapters more than that.  It is easy to read and understand even for a novice like myself.  The pictures are excellent.  I like that you used six different trainers and I can use the different techniques to suit my mule.  I wish that I had this book thirty years ago. 
Thanks ~ Tom McFarlane
