Donkey and Mule Show

The Donkeys Want to Meet You!

The Donkey and Mule Show will take place on Saturday morning in the Show Ring. The show starts at 9:15, rain or shine. To really appreciate donkeys and mules, you must watch us (the donkeys and mules) working with our servants (they call themselves our owners). We are loving creatures who want to please and are willing to do the unusual biddings of these folks. Watch us jump, pull wagons and haul logs, carry our servants on our backs, follow them around obstacles and encourage them to play silly games. Come to our show and join the fun! Talk to the people who think they own us; ask a lot of questions – you’d be surprised at what you may learn about us! Sometimes we even talk back just to see you smile. Judge and clap for the servants who show us. Clap for us all in the costume class and enjoy your stay with us. Then visit us at the barns, where we can chat more. HEE-HAW!
