My New Mule!!

I know I am a horrible poster! I haven't updated in a long time!! TJ and I are doing great! Very busy with working and all the fun stuff of summer! Over fathers day weekend we road tripped with my parents through jackson hole and yellowstone and then over to Cody, Wyoming. Those of you who know me well know that I hate to road trip. I would rather just sleep until we get there but this trip my dad was determined to keep me awake and force me to enjoy road tripping. And it worked!! We had a blast. Lots of driving but we had lots to chat about and lots to see. But most importantly, we had mule business to discuss. That is the whole point of the road trip. We were heading up to Jake Clark's Mule Days in Cody, Wyoming.  A month before the sale we had sold two of our mules that I was quite fond of so my dad promised me that I could take the profit from those two mules and buy my very own! I have never had a mule that I could call my own, I just rode whoever! But now I do!! After countless hours of studying the mule catalogue and 2 days scouting and riding and asking questions on every mule at the sale ( 108 of them) We had it narrowed down. I gave my dad the top 8 with a top 3 of those and let him loose in the auction ring. It was very exciting and I was a nervous wreck but we got one!!! Well two actually but we are not allowed to talk about that, Deb wasn't so happy with the second buy. Here has some pictures of our awesome new Mules!!! Cayenne and Honey! I can't wait to ride them all summer! Thanks Dad!!!! 

Trace and Cayenne! (This one is mine)
Tj on Honey, she is a great mule!
