I don't think the county does, but cities and towns within the county usually do have restrictions on farm animals, as may individual neighborhoods.

my HOA is filled with mules (or any other name you want to call them).

think each HOA has regulations about farm animals. At the county level, there's land requirements.

I couldn't find anything in a quick scan of the Wake County Code of Ordinances.

The Raleigh Municipal Code has the following section (no mention of mules - but they are half horse):
Quote:
Sec. 12-3031. - STABLES FOR CATTLE, GOATS, AND HORSES; GENERALLY.
It shall be unlawful for any person to locate, place, erect or maintain on any property within the corporate limits of the City, a stable for housing cattle, goats or horses unless such stable is located at least two hundred (200) feet from all neighboring residences. Not more than one head of cattle, one goat or one horse may be kept on a lot containing less than one acre. For lots dimensioned one acre and no more than five (5) acres in size, a maximum of three (3) head of cattle, or three (3) goats, or three (3) horses per acre may be kept. More than three (3) head of cattle, three (3) goats, or three (3) horses per acre, but not more than ten (10) head of cattle, or ten (10) goats, or ten (10) horses per acre may be kept on lots containing more than five (5) acres. Every part of a lot set aside for the use of cattle, goats or horses shall be completely enclosed. Stables used for housing cattle, goats, or horses shall comply with all local zoning ordinances and shall be constructed and maintained in conformity with the requirements of the Wake County Board of Health.
