Saddle Up Article

Our club submits an article regulary to the Saddle Up magazine. We are looking for someone to take over the ropes in writing a small article or at minimum members who would like to be featured in the article. It sounds scary, but truly it is not! It is a great way to get some facts and stories out there about our long ear friends! If you can help in anyway please email.

Casino Update

Due to COVID our casino dates will likely be pushed due to current closures. As a club we will have to keep this in mind as they are our primary source of funding

Website Update

  • The website now has a "Links" section- feel free to suggest links that may be interesting to long ear fans
  • We have a section on the website called "Our Club In Action"- we would love to show off pictures/short blurbs of what you are doing with your long ears- whether it is at home or out and about. The facebook page gets these posts, and it would be great to get them on the website as well. Please send them to the club email as well!
  • We will be adding a Health and Wellness section. Feel free to email good articles our way to add to the website
  • There is an "Upcoming Events" section- please let us know of any events that may be of interest to club members. Remember to check back for your own interest as well!

We are looking for a smaller, quiet saddle mule for companionship as well as the occasional trail ride. My Client knows their value, keeps his mules forever and considers them family.

ISO: halter breaking donkey for our purebred beef operation and I was hoping you could point me in the right direction. My criteria is as follows: traditional regular sized Jesus Donkey. Prefer under 5 years old halter broke, need not have experience with halter breaking cattle but a willing disposition is a must. No preference as to Jack or Jenny. We are located in the Peace Country but could travel to find the right Donkey. We had a breaking donkey for over 20!years and he was exceptional. The new hired hand will have big shoes to fill.
