Today was the annual spring Brinktown Ride near Vienna, MO. The weather was amazing. We had a really nice day. Wesley Wells and Mickey from Booneville, MO joined us for the ride. We ride from Jerry Welschmeyer's farm to the Brinktown Catholic Church. The church has a chicken dinner. Great chicken and amazing pie.

We have spent the weekend at the All American Mule and Donkey Congress in Tulsa, OK. It was a nice show. The facilities are fantastic. Probably the best facility we have ever shown in. The show was run ok. The show schedule was a little ambitious for two days. I would suggest they add some classes on Friday before the cattle class next year. The judges were fair. We have shown under Willoughby before but the other judge we hadn't seen before. She was from Oklahoma. The judges got a little grouchy towards midnight on Saturday but they had been there for a very long day (as we all had). There was a nice selection of youth present. The show had an Easter egg hunt on the trail class pattern for kids 10 and under and they all seemed to have a great time. There were participants from as far away as Maryland and Florida. We hope that they plan to have the show next year - make plans to attend.
