My Daughter Shows a Mule/AssPosted Monday, August 23, 2010, at 7:35 PM
My daughter rides horses for people when they hire her. Or maybe I should say equines.... this one is a mule to be specific. The jokes are limitless.... We wonder how long during the days does "Katie sit around on her ass" Nope, the fun knows no bounds. BUT this last weekend, she made me proud and showed the mule at the Western Idaho Fair Mule Show. I went to watch and of course take pictures. I was impressed with all the competitors. Katie didn't win, but consistently placed about 3rd and 4th. She only had this mule about a month, so I thought that was exceptional. I do a little bit of showing, but I LOVED watching my daughter show. She hasn't done much since 4-H, though she is very involved with "equines" ....
There were quite a few mules being shown, and these folks take this very seriously!
Each contestant gets a moment with the judge.
You never know what you'll see just looking behind ya.
These are ponies that are going to be the "Pony Rides"
Katie does not like to have her picture taken
Again, ya just never know what you'll see!
They have a "Scurry Race" Over 3 jumps -- Around a Barrel & Back. This was fun to watch! I want to add it to our horse show in Elmore County!
I'm kind of proud of her. This is an awesome jump!
LOTS more came out for the Egg & Spoon Race. They have to hold an egg on a spoon, and see who goes the longest without dropping the spoon. Katie was 4th in this. Awesome riders.
Run -- Ride & Lead. Is just what it says. You have to run to your Mule/Horse, Get on, race back, get off and run back! Exciting and Hilarious to watch!
Her Mule does NOT like her charging at him.... but it works out. Wayne is her handler.
These kids are climbing in to get the eggs that fell but didn't break. An egg fight is about to start.
This mule is under the canopy cooling off!
More to come!

I am interested in this Community, County, and the beautiful state of Idaho. Most of my photos will be in Idaho, but from time to time, they will be my vacations aay from Idaho. You'll see lots of my Children and Grand children, along with others in my family. Of course there will be horses and horse related things, and things I photo'd horseback.
