This blog is a day to day record of the life at our farm:
the mules, the dogs and the kids.

We just returned home from Sycamore Springs Show-de-o Final event. It was a great time and I'm sorry for those that missed it. The Oklahoma weather was amazing and it was really a great event. The winners of the saddles were: Robert Cooper and Chet won the Trail Challenge Saddle. Loren and Jessie were second. Robert and Chet were at a couple more events than Loren. Loren and Jessie won the Cattle Saddle. Becky Payne of Oklahoma won the Gymkhana Saddle with Cole and BB in second place. Becky and Rooster were at every Show-de-o all summer long. Sycamore Springs decided this week to give a youth all around saddle. That saddle went to Sam Cooper and Stetson. Sam is Pete and Mary Cooper's grandson and Sam won on Stetson, Pete's 30 year old mule. It is always nice to see older mules taking home the championships. Our mule, Jessie, is also an older mule. Many thanks to Jerry and Beth at Sycamore Springs. They are planning two events next year, one in the spring and one in the fall. I'm hoping to get some more pictures up this week of the event.
