When I was a small child we lived in southern Mississippi near Biloxi. At that time, in many parts of the rural south, mechanization was not prevalent (it was almost nonexistent). Consequently, Many people still farmed with mules and horses. Some even used them to provide transportation. It was so common to see working teams that I came to the conclusion that in order to make a good living all you needed was a good team and a couple of hound dogs for hunting. I hope “Teammates” captures the wonderful feeling of this way of life.
