Trainers competing in the second annual Missouri Mule Makeover, held in conjunction with Ozark Mule Days over Labor Day weekend in Springfield, Mo., pulled out all the stops in hopes of capturing the win. But in the end, it was a repeat win for Shane Vaughan, who won the 150 day challenge on his draw Ruby (pictures above).
Only the top four placings were given. Following Shane and Ruby were John Logsdon and Okie in second, Mr. Fritz and Kevin Raber in third, and Shawn Petersen and Tiny Dancer in fourth. Each mule in the competition showed incredible improvement. Most mules were sold over the weekend, either at the auction or outside of the ring.
