Mules and muleteers have played a key role in the world’s economic growth; without their hard work, stamina, strength, and patience over hundreds of years prior to mechanization, much of the modern world would not exist: they helped to construct it.Read More
We started out the show season with the first show at Oak Star Ranch. It was a great show and we had a lot of fun. Also learned a lot and had a great time with a wonderful donkey that Jimmy and Joy McCain are letting me show this year. He is a great donkey and we are both learning a lot.
Next show was Bishop and also had a great time, we had a great turn out of donkeys as we also had a Laura's show. We had them all in the parade and as always donkeys are so loved by everyone.
The Kernville show was great, not as many turned out for the show as last year, but was a great show and had a lot of fun.
I did not go to Tucker's but heard from a lot of contestants that it was a great turn out and had a lot of fun as usual.
Let's keep showing our great animals and keep having fun. I love the comradery that we have at all the shows, the fun and learning from each other. See everyone at Penn Valley and stay safe.

“Dyna Does Dressage” is a documentary about the first mule ever to compete at the national level in the competitive equestrian sport of Dressage. Defined by the International Equestrian Federation as “the highest expression of horse training,” the idea of mules competing at this level has never been considered. This underdog story follows Dyna and her owner/rider, Laura, as they defy the odds to find their place among this elite world of horse riding.
A mule, often mistaken as a donkey, is defined as the offspring of a “jack” (male donkey) and a mare (female horse), which are different species altogether with different numbers of chromosomes. Historically, mules have most commonly been known as “working animals” rather than “riding animals”, and thought not to have the grace and elegance needed for Dressage.
A high school student named Allie Evans from Kentucky recently shot, edited and shared this video with us which I must say is a damn good job of showing what the mule community is all about. This was shot in a small community in Merrimac, KY which goes to show mule people are alike even on the other coast of the USA. Just getting together, hangin' out and having a good ol' time. A small quote from Allie about her video "I have known Milford Lowe all of my life and he has such a passion for his mules I thought other mule enthusiasts would enjoy the video."
Thanks again Allie!Read More
