Doud has been training and breeding mules and donkeys for over 15 years and is one
of the most sought-after mule and donkey trainers in the United
States. In 1984, Tim moved to beautiful Cody, Wyoming to work
as a guide in the high country and wilderness of the Shoshone
National Forrest. Having worked with horses and mules for many
years, Tim adapted well to guiding and packing with equines.
In 1993, now the owner of the outfitting business he once worked
for, Tim wanted only the best equines for his clients. After
two years of careful searching, he came across Major and began an impressive line of working mules and donkeys by Diamond Creek Major.
Tim understood that his mules and donkeys were exceptional and began training
and showing his stock throughout the United States at sanctioned
shows. Diamond Creek Angel, Diamond Creek Classic Twist, Diamond Creek Major are just a few of the mules and donkeys that won top accolades. For his efforts,
Tim was named the North American Saddle Mule Association Leading
A highly sought-after and well-accomplished breeder and trainer, Tim continues
to accept outside mules into his nationally renowned training program. His patience and ability to bring
out the best in his "students" is unprecedented.
Tim's knowledge and accolades speak for themselves...his award winning breeding
program, the first person to complete the John & Josh Lyons Certification program with two mules, and a grand-champion herd sire.
