This painting probably resulted from Remington's 1896 trip to Texas. Later that year Remington included illustrations of government mules pulling ambulances in the article "The Blue Quail of the Cactus" which he wrote for Harper's Monthly magazine. The markings on this mule's body shows the effect of pulling in harness.
