GRAND JUNCTION — When entering True Blue Farms’ main office, visitors can’t help but notice a framed black and white photograph hanging on a wall.

The framed photo shows a large, muscled horse, stretching with all of its might to pull a carload full of coal in an underground mine shaft in 1917. Underneath the striking image are the words, “Pull It One More Mile.”
