Select Saddle Mule AUCTION
begins @ Big Barn

Mules will be sold in Hip number order.

We are very happy that our Select Saddle Mule Auction has so much interest annually.  Because of this, and that we limit our sale mule numbers, we begin taking consignments January 1st each year.  Our sale is generally full by January 5th. 

Consignment preference is given to the top quality mule consignors from the previous years.

Auction Mules may be shown in Mounted Shooting; Team Sorting; Rodeo; or Team Roping & Barrel Racing

It is mandatory that all auction mules are shown in the Trail Course on Friday.

We help you determine which mule fit's your needs whether you are looking strictly for a mule for Trailing Riding, Trail riding and leading a pack animal(s), Working Cattle, Roping, Barrel racing, Pole Bending, or well trained for all activities.


Mule auction starts promptly at 1 p.m. in the Big Barn
(9 am-Preview of sale mules at the arena)

The GUARANTEES only apply if the sale is run through the AUCTION.  Be sure to come to the office to let us know you have made arrangements to purchase one of the mules that did not sell in the Ring to insure all sale GUARANTEES.

After the Sale, we continue to try to sell the mules and will post them to Facebook and other area's to let potential buyers know what mules are still available.  We do leave it up to the integrity of the seller to forward any commission on mules that go through the ring as no sales, but are sold because of the advertising and efforts of the Jake Clark's MULE DAYS.  We work hard to do right for both our buyers and our consignors and want to thank those consignors and buyers that possess the integrity to know that we have done a great job and will pay us according to their contract.

We pride ourselves on the quick and efficient turn-around time in providing our Buyers the required items for transport by our Brand Inspectors and Veterinarian.  


Animals that are rejected by the buyer because they are misrepresented in the ring will need to be inspected by Jake Clark and possibly Jake's veterinarian. Jake will make the final determination whether there was misrepresentation.


All mules will be charged a $10.50 brand inspection fee by state law.

Any Health papers required for Transport will be $10.00, and charged to the Buyer.
