Knowing how many days it took to cross this part of Texas I wonder at how _little_ hay you have on hand… I’d be worried about that day and night… Do mules forage when they’re picketed? I know they can digest way more forage than horses…

It doesn’t look like much but that one bale of alfalfa hay, along with some foraging in the desert and supplemental grain, would be enough for almost a week on the road. You’re right. Mules are better foragers than horses. They are also happy eating tougher, more fibrous things than horses. Gotta love a donkey in the family tree!
