MM Auction Services, LLC warmly welcomes you to our 5th Annual Chrome in the Canyon Premier Mule Sale, taking place from May 1-4, 2024, at Bryce Canyon Mule Days, in Tropic, Utah. This event promises to showcase the country’s PREMIER mules and trainers for you to choose from. Our mission is rooted in instilling buyer confidence by bringing together trainers with integrity and presenting high-quality mules. The Premier Mule Sale offers a professional buying experience featuring mules of various disciplines and breeds, ensuring you find your dream mule.
Here’s how our meticulous process works: All mules are nominated and then rigorously scored by our team using a rubric. Only the top-scoring mules make it to the sale, marking the first sifting process. The second sifting occurs when the mules arrive in Tropic, where our vet and crew conduct thorough checks to ensure only the best make it to the sale. As an auction company, our commitment is to provide the highest quality mules, and we expect buyers to do their due diligence. We encourage you to call trainers in advance, ask questions, visit their homes, ride the mules, attend Mule Days for three days to closely observe the mules, and select those that best fit you. Additionally, for buyers who wish to have their own X-rays, a vet will be onsite to perform these services.
Join us for an exceptional mule-buying experience at Chrome in the Canyon Premier Mule Sale, where quality, integrity, and buyer confidence come together seamlessly.
Ebenezer Bryce settled in the valley just below the canyon in 1870. Bryce was a shipbuilder who journeyed west with Brigham Young and the Mormon pioneers to assist in the construction of buildings essential to community life throughout the new land. Bryce lived here for only five years, yet in that time the people who knew him knew the canyon as Bryce’s canyon. Bryce was a pragmatic man, constructing roads to facilitate lumber transport and surveying the route for a 10-mile irrigation ditch running from the top of the plateau to the valley that would later lead to larger, more permanent settlements. If he had romantic ideas concerning the land on which he struggled to survive, they are lost in history. All he is known to have said concerning this striking scene behind his home is, “It’s a heck of place to lose a cow.”
