There’s a noticeable absence on the south end of Locust Avenue. Kate is gone and forever.

Kate was a mule and for three decades she pulled plows, delighted the children and became a sentimental fixture. To the Henry Wachtendorfs, her owners since she came to Conway in 1935, she was part of the family. This was Kate’s 39th year, an unusually old age for a mule. J.O. Hill, Faulkner County agent, said a mule living to be 39 is equivalent to a man living to be about 117. Hill said the average age mules live is 17 or 18.
