Happy Mule Appreciation Day!!!

Happy Mule Appreciation Day! Be sure to give your mule a big hug (or a scratch on the butt, which is what MagPie prefers) today! And don't forget about your horses and donkeys, since without them, we wouldn't have our wonderful mules!

The photos above are from the Mule Day Celebration event that took place last week at the Mule Trading Post in Rolla, Mo. It was a beautiful day to celebrate our long-eared friend!

Dozer Beaver will be spending the next 4 weeks at St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, Memphis, TN for treatment.

Let’s all pull together and shower Dozer with Halloween cards to help brighten his stay. At this date we do not have an address for him in Memphis, so either mail your cards to Mules and More, PO Box 460, Bland, MO 65014, or to his home at Box 1412, Stilwell, OK 74960. Time is running out, so get your card in the mail today!

The Best Costumes At The 2011 Tompkins Square Dog Parade held in New York City. 

Agreed. This is amazing. Are you dressing your mule or donkey (or dog!) up for Halloween?

Recycle Owensville

Well, I am probably more excited about this than I should be. Owensville is going to have a recycle day on Saturday, which means I only have to drive my recycling a few miles (instead of almost 45 minutes) it will actually make it out of my garage! Yay!
I am going to sell my aluminum cans, too. And take that pile of stuff to the dump. And move the computer desk to the storage shed. And I am going to have my garage back!
Like I said, I am way more pumped for what basically amounts to cleaning than I should be. But it has been getting chilly in the mornings and it would be so nice to be able to park my car in there.

We just sent the November issue off to the printer.  That means we are officially working on December. Oh man, I don't even want to think about all that yet. But, I do love Halloween, and Thanksgiving, and I guess it's not too bad :)

Everything else is secondary

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” 
-Steve Jobs 1955-2011

Extreme Trail Challenge in Rolla, Mo.

My mom has some photos over on her blog of the Extreme Trail Challenge Camri, my dad and I attended this weekend in Rolla, Mo., hosted by the Rolla Saddle Club. Hoosier and I were the big winners, followed by Dad and Jessie in second and Dad and Jethro in fourth. Camri and Shedaisy placed third in the 12 and under division. It was a great way to spend a beautiful Saturday with our mules!

I might possibly have some videos to post from the challenge, but I'm not quite sure of their quality yet. Camri recorded one of them (of Jessie's run). Dad said he added commentary to my run, so I am sure it turned out great (especially since I momentarily forgot how to open a gate, lol).
