" ' What was right there, fool?" I cried, and he: 'Hit was' until I took the whip from him into my own hand and struck the mule.
- "Что было, осел ты эдакий?" - вскричала я, а он все твердил свое: "Эвон где", пока я не взяла в руки кнут и не принялась стегать мула.

So they will have told you doubtless already how I told that Jones to take that mule which was not his around to the barn and harness it to our buggy while I put on my hat and shawl and locked the house.
Они, конечно, вам уже рассказывали, как я велела этому Джонсу отвести на конюшню этого чужого мула и запрячь его в нашу повозку, а сама надела шляпу и шаль и заперла дом.

There were many mule-tracks, and once I was surprised to see the marks of a large horse where a stream had softened the track.
Я видел следы множества мулов, а на сырой земле возле пересекавшего тропу ручейка, к удивлению своему, заметил отпечатки копыт крупной лошади.

Gibbons also had this extended saddle fitted with two belly bands, more comfortable for the mule, safer on steep trails for riders.
Гиббонс также снабдил свое усовершенствованное седло двумя подпругами — так было удобнее мулу и спокойнее всадникам на крутом склоне.

He was a kind-hearted and humane man. He treated the sick poor and peasants for nothing, visited them in their slums and huts, and left money for medicine, but he was as obstinate as a mule.
Он был добр и человеколюбив, лечил бедных больных и крестьян даром, сам ходил в их конуры и избы и оставлял деньги на лекарство, но при том был и упрям как мул.

Suddenly Sheemie's mule (Caprichoso, Roland thinks, a beautiful name) goes past, galloping on thin air with his eyes as bright as firedims in the storm's lumbre fuego.
Внезапно мул Шими (Капризный, вспоминает Роланд) галопом проносится мимо, его глаза сверкают, как драгоценные камни.

Except in its moments of descent, the balloon was a vehicle of faultless urbanity; this was a buck- jumping mule, a mule that jumped up and never came down again.
Если не считать минут спуска, воздушный шар вел себя с безукоризненной вежливостью; это же была не машина, а гарцующий осел, который к тому же упрямо скакал все только вверх и вверх.
