All students must bring the following to class:

- dust mask
- heavy latex / rubber gloves
-molds.  A mold can be almost anything -- a large bowl, dishpan, plastic flowerpots, baskets (without metal “ribs”), or cardboard boxes.  If cardboard boxes are used, the box should not be larger than approximately 10” x 18”.   Also, a lightweight board or a tray will be needed to put under the box so that it can be transported home.
-lightweight plastic sheets or plastic garbage bags to line the molds

(CANCELLED‼️) Donkey Show  Rain Date Saturday Aug. 5th (CANCELLED‼️)

(CANCELLED‼️) Donkey Show Rain Date Saturday Aug. 5th (CANCELLED‼️)

Unfortunately we had to cancel today's event.  It looks like in addition to the rain, there will be severe thunderstorm and windy conditions.  We care about the safety of the mules and the people who travel far and wide to come to the show, so a decision was made for these reasons.

Sorry for the inconvenience and hope to see you soon!!  

The rain date is here!  Join us on Saturday, August 5th, for the 15th Annual Donkey & Mule Show at Waters Farm.  Spectator Admission is $5 per car load; exhibitors are free.

Come see donkeys strut their stuff.  Our show is fun and instructional, with a mix of seasoned competitors with backyard donkey and mule owners bringing their animal out for the first time.  While there are many traditional horse show classes including in hand, riding and driving, we also have some that are unique to the donkey world. 

The final morning class before lunch break is coon jumping.  All donkeys and mules compete – from the minis to the mammoths – in a jump off where the bar is raised higher each round.  What is different?  These competitors jump from a standstill without a rider on their back, only holding a lead line.  

The costume class – following lunch break – is a big hit.  Exhibitors and animals dress up in costumes that, in the past, have included pajama party, bubble bath, French mimes, Star Wars characters, and Chiquita bananas.

Have you ever considered adopting or sponsoring a donkey or mule?  The Save Your Ass Long Ears Rescue is the only 501(c)3 nonprofit donkey and mule rescue in New England.  Stop by and pick up some information on the rescue.

Vendor spaces are available for $20 for equine related items.  Lunch is available for a fee.

Waters Farm, 53 Waters Road, Sutton, MA.  Any questions, please contact Pam at 508.735.7146.

Donkey Show POSTPONED until August!

We're sad to report that we had to postpone the Donkey & Mule show due to weather reports and field conditions.  Although it ended up not actually raining the day of the event, the field conditions were unsafe for the donkeys and mules as a result of several rainy days leading up to it.  

No fear!!  We will be back in August!  Fill out the form below, and we will send you an email once we have the rain date for the Donkey and Mule Show.  If you sign up to our mailing list, we will also email you periodically with news, updates and events for Waters Farm.  We promise not to send too many!
