It's a sunny Sunday in Wickersham and we've a trail ride to enjoy, but I wanted to take a quick moment to answer this pressing question: have I, Fenway Bartholomule, ever appeared with my mane intact?
Karen W. writes, "Great pictures! Looks like a fun outting too. I'm curious Fenway, does Farmwife roach your mane? I just realized I've never seen a mule wearing a long mane, are they always shaved, or do you not grow mane?"
Karen, most mules have a sparse mane. This means, for most of us, that a roach is the way to go. The exception to this rule would be the case of the ewe-necked mule, or the mule whose topline is so unFenwayish as to require a little bit of illusory additional width.
