I'm considering using this logo for a new domain name frugalmule.com.  I am still looking for a funny sketch of a mule and so far, the attached image is the best I have found.  

I would like to turn it into a black and white image with Frugal Mule and/or FM printed on it or around it such that it would show up well on a business card and still be an eye catching logo.  

Other suggestions and assistance is greatly appreciated.

I agree with HendrikWiese.   - Except turn the text into a circled iron brand for the cow on it's backside.

Something like...

Something like this perhaps?
 Shown in colour, but easily converted to grey scale.

Whoops, what a silly spelling mistake.  Makes me look a bit of an "ass"!!  Easily fixed, the letters are separate vector shapes that can be shuffled and an "a" inserted.  Just consider it an example.  It was a long night.

Thanks but grayscale or color won't work.  Needs black and white.

BillDL,
Thanks, the color separation is the difficult part.  I really like your design but the reason I am wanting black-and-white is because the printer needs a color separated file and I don't know how to do that.  Assistance is greatly appreciated.

Hi Rtod2,
making it black and white is pretty simply. Simply grab BillDL's image, open it in Photoshop, select the Image menu in the menu bar, go to Mode --> Grayscale

Photoshop will prompt you with a question: Discard color informaiton? Select Discard
Discard color info
You image is now black and white.

This seems like the best solution.  I was actually looking for color separated black-and-white, and not grayscale but this gets me part way home at least for this project.
