The Homing Mule

Record #:
Mules have a longtime reputation among farmers as strong and stubborn. Add to this homing, or the ability to find their way to the homestead. As for how hybrid beasts like Belle was able to, explanations were offered such as backtracking, sniffing out their own tracks, and night eyes, what the author described as “horn like patches” on their inner forelegs, slightly above the knees.
