I recently ordered a copy of Mike Kerson's "Longears Everywhere" video of Bishop Mule Days 2003. After watching it, I have to say this is an excellent video for those who want to catch a glimpse of the thrill of Bishop Mule Days.
From big teams of draft mules pulling old-fashioned wagons to the colorful Mule Days drill team, the challenge of Gambler's Choice Driving, Donkey and Mule races, fancy parade entries, barrel racing and pole bending, the two awesome 20-mule teams that were at Mule Days and more - I think Mike's "Longears Everywhere" video does an excellent job of condensing the excitement of a whole week and the diversity of activities down into an hour of highlights. I have really enjoyed watching and re-watching this video.
I can't wait until Mike's next Mule Days 2004 video is out. This last summer among other things he was able to film the Mule Days Pack Scramble from down in the arena, in the middle of the action! I hear that had some exciting moments while all the mules were running around!
I even got a few photos of Mike while he was filming the Pack Scramble. In this one you can find him near the middle in the dark shirt with his assistant, in the blue shirt, standing nearby to pull him out of harms way.
