Carrying capacity of animals

Anyone got any thoughts on what EV values to give to mules, horses, donkeys, warhorses etc. Three of my players have aquired horses and I need some guidelines about what they can carry

I believe this was purposely left vague, because I wondered about this one myself. But, if all you need is numbers to give you a rough idea, then the numbers I calculated for my replacement encumbrance system should work fine.
Riding Horse: EV 45
Light Warhorse: EV 70
Heavy Warhorse: EV 90
Pony: EV 22.5 (I use decimals...use either 22 or 23)
War Pony: EV 30
The mule I don't have a figure for because mules aren't in Monsters & Treasure as far as I can recall. However, I would rate mules as being about war pony size, and thus have an EV of 30.
NOTE TO ALL: If you don't like something I've said, PM me and tell me to my face, then give me a chance to set things right before you call a moderator.
