My neighbor grew up in Pennsylvania. We were talking the other day and he bet that he was the last person in Muskogee who knew how to harness a mule for plowing. I doubted the fact, but thought I would check to see if anyone else in the area knew how to hitch a mule to a plow.
The last mule I saw pulling a plow was south of Magnolia Arkansas about 1966. Has anyone seen a farmer plowing behind a mule since then?
