Can you ride a mule in FrontierVille?
No but you can ride a horse
( the riding horse is not the one in the market )
The origin of the phrase "government mule" is not known. However, the idea could mean one of two things. The term could refer to something that belongs to the government so that the treatment of the mule is irrelevant or of no concern. The term could also refer to the laziness or slowness of the mule (as with things of the government) which requires extra prodding or poor treatment.
