There are tons of events that happen over the course of RodeoHouston and some go unheard of until someone you know is involved or you see a post on Facebook. (Like this one.) The Donkey & Mule show starts EARLY, at 8 A.M. so you gotta plan ahead to watch! Let’s hope they go Live on FB for this.
I had no idea anything like this existed until I found myself checking out Houston Press‘s break down of all the events that happened last year. This is how it was described.
There’s the Donkey & Mule Show that runs on March 17th. In this event, Horses’ cuter and bigger-eared cousins get put through their paces in the mule pull, donkey snigging (that is, dragging a log behind them) and donkey single-hitch obstacle-driving contests. Also, the donkey and the mule with the widest spans between their ears will be awarded “Ear of the Year” titles. That would be a dubious honor for humans, but will likely make the animals’ owners very proud. (Source: Houston Press)
