The farrier came out  to trim hooves yesterday, and Andy decided to wreck the shoeing stock as best he could. We’re going to have to drug him to get his feet done.  Day before yesterday I took delivery of a horsedrawn mower in several pieces because the yobbos failed to secure it to the trailer they were hauling it on. If you’ve got to drive anywhere near inbreeding central, watch  the  fuck  out.

There have been a few bright spots. Barney let the farrier touch his ears, and trim three of his feet. There were no broken bones. There was no blood.

My wife and I marked one of our anniversaries yesterday. The legal one was Jan 16th or 18th, but April Fools is the one that counts. We’ve been together a good thirty or forty years now.
