Even in 1916 . . .

 . . . . mules knew how to SHINE!

Here is a photo from FarmWife's good human friend L., who reports that it was taken in Texas and shows her great grandfather and his mule brigade searching for Pancho Villa.

I, for one, would like to go roaming in Texas under different circumstances; I would like to meet the cattle with the very big horns. It's always been a dream of mine—I think they evoke some sort of ancestral longing for the time when the prehistoric Hipparion and Auroch grazed side-by-side.

Thanks, L., for sharing this beautiful bit of family history and this beautiful mule. Your great grandpa shall be remembered as a man with Muleness.
