Many of us wondered how the hell a mule got into Ponyville, especially since it's not like there's some larger colony of mules that happen to live close by, like the herd of cows. Because of Celestia's information-scrubbers, most ponies don't know that there actually used to be two colonies of equines living side-by-side in Equestria. There were the little ponies, worshipers of Princess Celestia's sun, and the little donkeys, the worshipers of Princess Luna's moon. While ponies were bouncy and energetic, highly social and a bit shallow on the whole, Luna's donkeys were more scholarly and intelligent, devoting their lives to the study of history and the sciences, allowing for many of the inventions that everyday ponies still use. While ponies lived in flimsy huts and houses, easily demolished by the next dragon rampage, donkeys found sturdier pre-existing caves to house themselves in, where the bio-luminescent cave moss kept their homes well-lit. Although the two races only mixed at twilight and sunrise, there was no animosity between the two, and they lived in harmony for thousands of years. In fact, they lived a little TOO harmoniously, for Princess Celestia's liking; interbreeding was sporadic, but a constant line of mules seemed to spring up wherever the two races met. Even though Princess Celestia cursed the mule race to sterility, the donkeys and ponies still intermingled freely. While Princess Celestia demanded a full segregation of the races, Princess Luna tried to maintain her people's rights, arguing that they only used the nighttime for their activities, which Princess Celestia despised.
