Looking for online scientific studies relating to the intelligence level of mules.

My Google searches turn up lots of handlers and animal-raisers who say that "mules are smart"; some describe mule qualities (sociability, not a 'flight' animal, smarter than horses, etc.). But what I'm looking for is more concrete data or descriptions of mule intelligence. Has testing been done on these animals? Exactly how are they intelligent? I'm not a scientist, so the sources should be accessible to a layperson. Bonus points if you can link me to similar info about pigs. Thanks Hive Mind!
