Now here's a mystery. Why would anyone make a postcard from this nag? He's not a race horse. No, this horse is a working horse, made obsolete by tractors and cheap fuel. This one's a pretty old card, from back in the day when farmers worked their horses and didn't think of them as a family pet. Maybe the owner of this animal had a soft spot and liked his livestock. Maybe after his working life this horse was retired to the back pasture. More likely, when this photo was taken, the farmer/owner was thinking of how much money he could get for old Jughead. Take a look at this card and make an offer. Jughead can still pull a plow, a wagon, and if that doesn't work, there's always the slaughterhouse.
