Attachment weirdness

I used xwd to take a screen dump, then imagemagick to trim and
save it as a gif.

When I tried to attach it to a message, mutt decided it was
"audio/basic", as it did with a jpeg of the same image.

png gave me "image/png" so I did, finally, get what I 
wanted.  But the file, of course, is a lot bigger than a gif.

Is this just the result of my ancient copy of mutt (1.5.21)?
(The other software is also not the Latest'n'Greatest).  Or is
there something I can fix?
