Mustang Mott (at 29°07' N, 97°25' W), in central DeWitt County, is a hill with a stand of live oak trees on the prairie about six miles southeast of Cuero. It derives its name from the herds of wild mustangs that sought protection in the mott. Early settlers often rode there to capture the untamed horses.
