Draft2

This show is really the beauty contest of our Mule Day event. The draft mule has been the foundation of Mule Day, since day one, either in this show, Mule Pulling, used in the Parade to pull wagons, or the basis for our Wagon Train. This show starts at 2:00 PM after the Mule Day Parade. This show is held in the Old Arena (front arena) with the Jack (the father of the Mule) and Jennet classes first, graduating to the Draft Horses (the mother of the Mule). Class eight begins the segment of the show that leads to who is going home with the top prize of Mule Day 2013 and that is the “KING MULE” trophy. The judge is looking for long legs, long ears, and a good build. During this show you will notice there are classes for both Horse Mules (male) and Mare Mules, singles or in pairs. Be sure and cheer for the best looking mule you see and let the Judge know your preference.
