I am good mule. I do as I'm told. Here is FarmWife trying to prove it to you by recording a little video of me walking, trotting, and cantering without reins. (Of course, when it's just the two of us she tones the spoken commands down a bit. I read her mind and do what she wishes.)
She is trying to make you jealous, but don't let it get to you. I would walk, trot, canter, and whoa for you, too, if you asked nicely. I'm a gentleman about things like that.
