Team 91 - Lady Sophia *
Hi! My name is Jan Samford and this is my 2nd year for Distance Derby. I live on a farm in SW Iowa. My husband and I raise mules and have a small herd of stock cows. The cows help pay for my passion of riding and raising mules. My team this year is Lady Sophia, a 7 yr. old, red roan molly mule. She's a remarkable, go everywhere and anyone can ride mule. We compete in shows, trail challenges, slide ditches and cover a lot of trial miles. Matilda is the 2nd member of Team Diamond J. I started riding Matilda last year and she is an awesome little donkey. Watch for us on the trails and in the show ring. Jillian is the newest member. She is a 3 yr. old sorrel molly mule that I raised. We'll be competing in the IDMS 3 yr old futurity in Bloomfield come August. We hope to meet you on the trails or wherever our paths may cross. Happy Trails to everyone!
