Reese Mules Facts

Reese's have lived within two miles of the mule barn since 1792 when Charles Reese moved from Mecklenburg, NC, and married Polly Deshea, an original Nashville settler.  Richard's great-grandfather, Rufus M. Reese began selling mules in the 1920's - one mule at a time.  Since then the family mule tradition has been followed by his son's Dick Reese (above left) and Hub Reese and his Grandsons, Dickie (above center photo cowboy hat) and Rufus Reese (above center green cap).  In 1950 the mule action business was started in Nashville.  Hub Reese was the main supplier of mules used in Afghanistan during 1979-1989  in the war against the Russians. With the year 2012 the fourth generation of Reese mule tradition begins to take a role as Richard Reese (above far left), great grandson, starts working in the family business.

Reese Mules trades, buys and sales mules year round all over the country.   The Reese Family Farm is located at 398 Dry Fork Road, Gallatin TN 37066 and makes it a goal to keep an inventory of riding mules for show and trail, draft mules for work and show, as well as pack mules or wagon mules.
