Wikipedia article

This article is about the current version of DF.
A compact offspring of horse and donkey, bred to be a beast of burden.

Mules are domestic animals who are often used as pack animals by merchants. All mules are male in Dwarf Fortress, and as such they are unable to breed. For the common dwarven fortress, they are nothing but living meat, and their inability to breed, coupled with the fact that they cannot produce milk or yarn, like other large herbivores, makes them a poor choice for a meat industry. They are grazers and as such require a pasture to survive.

Some dwarves like mules for their stubbornness.

[edit] In real life

In real life, mules are the offspring of a male donkey (jack) and a female horse (mare). They are sterile, which the game simulates by making all mules male, though female mules do exist. Interspecies breeding is not yet a feature in DF, so you can't breed mules by crossing a donkey with a horse in-game, which consequently means the only way of acquiring these animals is to bring them on embark, via trading, or from being brought with migrants.

Admired for its stubbornness.
