Dan Patch

Dan Patch is a very tall brown mule. His best friend is a standard donkey named Whitey.  They came to the Refuge together in 2013 after his human passed away. Dan Patch enjoyed a useful life as the mount for his human who was a guide. Although Dan is a mule (Mom’s a horse and Dad’s a donkey), he displays very horsey behaviours.  He looks very much like a horse with long-ears.  Due to his size, he could be a bit intimidating to the other donkeys so he and Whitey were eventually given their own shelter and paddock. When two more mules arrived, they joined Dan and Whitey and became our mule herd. One look at him and you can see why mules were the go-to equine during the development of the mining and lumber industries in British Columbia.
