ABSOLUTELY "NO" Private Sales

Absolutely no private sales with Jake Clark's MULE DAYS attendee's either prior to the Sale or after the auction. Consignors have given Clark Management Company Exclusive Rights for selling the consigned Mule(s).  Management feels this is unfair to the consignors and buyers who have traveled to attend the sale. All mules brought to the sale to be sold during Jake Clark's MULE DAYS must be consigned and go through our auction ring. 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 go with the mule.

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.
