Aha yes, the iditarod. When we first came up here i showed this picture to some real mushers who’s eyes got real big before bursting into laughter. Then they told me how hard the Iditarod is to defend to folks that “know best” for the dogs and how much abuse they suffer while doing something they really love?
i offered to show the folks at the iditarod headquarters (3miles down the road) the picture and tell them “stop whining, people in North dakota run the hair right off they’re dogs”!
sounded good, never happened. Fond memories though.
I took a mini horse to a show in a limo once. Had to walk another one thru an airport and go down the public elevator to ground floor...some surprised looks as it stopped for pick ups at other floors. He was a perfect gentleman all the way!
I've taken goats and minis in the truck with me several times. Some strange looks from other drivers. One goat kid awoke in time to say hello to a cop who wanted to discuss the speed limit with me....
If you own a male horse or 20, there's that "bean removal" issue that's really hard for a non-horse person to believe. Yeah, they think you're a pervert!
Went to Walmart last summer saw the riding mower was knocked down in price. Needed one and bought it. No trailer. You should have seen the looks as I shot across the parking lot. Caught the railroad right away and headed home.
Only 3oo yards to the road crossing and 4 streets to go.
Used to be a guy who raised purebred show chickens that had a hearse that he used to bring the chickens in their cages/crates/carrying boxes to the shows. Drove it for years. Probably got a good deal on it used, and hey, they are pretty roomy inside so he could get alot of chicken carrying boxes in there. Had good show birds too.
Alaskan bird feeder! no one’s throwing any tomahawk’s this time of year so in the fall after iv’e butchered; i’ll save a couple rib sections and toss one up on the pole for the birds. It draws everything from ravens to the little guys. Today there were 3 magpies on it for a bit. This piece is getting pretty white but they still find edible bits. The bigger birds hang pretty close when it’s still fresh and about this time of year the little guys make up the majority of the visitors.
Your two favorite gifts at Christmas; a gift certificate for the local feed store and a big bag of untreated barley seed for growing fodder.
Fathers day you get another gift certificate at the same feed store and people that know you don't think it's funny... anymore.
Your favorite neighbor saves plastic containers so you can grow fodder in winter.
Somebody tracks mud and hay on the floor at work and the first person blamed is you.
You plan your garden around what you and your rabbits like to eat and you tried eating new stuff cuz you saw it on a safe for rabbits to eat list.
