PHONE BIDDING PROCESS:  The mules you list below for bidding will be assigned to one of our employees.  Please know that the employee will be near our speakers which are very loud for both them and you.  The day of the sale, our employee will call you between noon and 1 p.m. MST and go over the bidding process, .  ie: The bid is at $5,000, do you want to go to $5,500, Yes or No?  This is simple, and easy to understand.  Please have an idea of your maximum bid as the bidding is rapid and they won't slow down to give you time to think about this. The mules are in the ring for only 2 1/2 to 3 minutes.  If the auction pauses, the mule could be sold.

WE'LL PHONE YOU:  Prior to your mule entering the sale ring, the employee will phone you by your 1st choice phone number, if busy the 2nd choice number will be used.  Please be available during the time your mule is expected to be in the ring, we sell an average of 20 mules per hour, 3 minutes per mule, so you can estimate the time we will be calling you.  We operate on MST.

TITLE:  Title passes to the buyer when the AUCTIONEER claims "SOLD".   All risk of injury to the mule becomes buyer's risk at passing of title. buyer agrees to release, defend, indemnify and hold owners, managers, and employees harmless from all losses, expenses, and claims related to the possession, care, custody, control or maintenance after AUCTIONEER claims "SOLD" of any mule on which he or she is the successful bidder, whether resulting in whole or in part from their own negligence, including but not limited to any claims arising out of injuries or damage caused by the mule after the AUCTIONEER claims "SOLD".

PAYMENT:  The mule will be held for buyer until buyer makes settlement as follows:
Buyer will be presented an invoice via email following the Auction.  Buyer shall see that a wire from their bank is prearranged or completed at the opening of their bank on Monday, immediately following the auction. All wiring instructions shall be included in the email showing balance due on their invoice which will be emailed to buyer.
Transporter will sign as responsible party for receipt and verify receipt of paperwork at time of pickup.

TRANSPORTATION:  Buyers are responsible for transportation of their mules once purchased.  We do provide a "Will Haul" List as well as a "Need A Ride" that is posted on the internet as well as in our Mule Days office.  Please email kay@saddlemule.com giving permission to add your name, phone, location to which list  Prior to the sale, please contact a transportation company for quotes and availability.  We suggest one that is bonded and insured. 

INSURANCE:  Buyers are responsible to purchase insurance coverage on their animal(s) purchased through the Auction once the Title Passes from Consignor to Buyer.  We have an insurance provider listed in the catalog and who will be onsite during Mule Days.  Please contact him.

VET INSPECTION:  A vet inspection IS NOT included with the sale of any horses.  If you wish a Vet Inspection, you MUST contact the consignor as well as a vet at your own expense, make arrangements to have any inspection done.  Clark Management, their owners, manager and any employee's do not make any vet claims as far as soundness in any way.  Any Claims of Soundness comes ONLY from the consignor and/or Veterinarian hired by a potential buyer prior to the Auction.

CARE:  Care of your new animal, once you get your new mule home, please keep it in a separate stall or pen away from your other animals.  Do this for 2 to 3 days before allowing it to run in the same pen as your current animals.  This gives the new boarder and your current animals time to get along and greet each other across any fence or panel early.  If you turn your new purchase out in a pasture, be sure to do this during the day so they are able to see all fences.  The new boarder will be inspected by the current animals and can be seen as running or pursuing the new boarder until they complete the introduction process.  

ENTERING MORE THAN THE MULES ALLOWED HERE:  Please fill out a second phone bid form and submit.  Thank You.
