Save a Horse, Ride a Mule

The 28th Annual Clark County Mule Festival kicks off in Kahoka, Missouri today.

The weekend long festival revolves around the beloved mule of Missouri. Festival Vice President Becki Krueger gives a little history lesson…

“Everybody’s heard of the Missouri mule. Missouri was the mule capital back in WWII. Hundreds of thousands of mules were bread and raised here to ship out over seas for the soldiers to use.”

There’s a rodeo on Saturday, and you can bet they aren’t just riding horses..

“You can actually ride the mules. You know, you can do anything with a mule you can do with a horse.”

The cost is $2.. which will get you a button, good for the whole weekend. A full list of events can be found on their webpage
