The Way West (1955)

so to look at a horseman who had jogged up and sat quiet for a minute and then swung out of the saddle.
" Lookin' for mules?" Tolty asked while he held a pole in his hand.
" Just easin' home," the man answered. "Neighbor asked me to see if you had some smart ones." He took off his hat and ran his hand through a thatch of silvery hair. His movements, like his talk, were deliberate and easy, as if he had lived long enough to feel at home in the world.
" Damn right I got smart ones," Tolty said. "I'll git to you directly." He turned to Fairman. "I can let you have one or a dozen. That there big mule'll pull hisself blind if you don't watch out. Man, he's a puller."
" I just want riding stock. I'll buy oxen for the wagons."
" You ain't bought 'em, eh?"
" Not yet. I'm in the market for some cattle, too."
" Now let me tell you something," Tolty said, gesturing with the cigar. "I sell mules and oxen both, even if I ain't got ary oxen right now. And if I was goin' to Oregon, I'd go by mule."
" Why?"
" A mule's faster, smarter, quicker handled, and better all around. Nicer to sit behind, too."
" More wind, maybe, but less drizzle," Hig said, smiling his thin smile.
" An ox, now, will do his best," Tolty continued, " but when he peters out he lies down, and by God you can't get him up with a hayfork."
Tod yanked at Fairman's hand. "I want the big bastard, Father."
" That's not the way to talk, Tod."
