Missouri MuleThe mule was adopted as Missouri's state animal in 1995. Generally considered smarter, hardier, and more sure-footed than a horse, mules have been used or pulling wagons and other endurance-related task. For many years Missouri was the mule-producing center of the country and provided 80% of the mules used in WWI.
