Recall and Equine Edjamucation
All our computer charger cords were recalled....every single one in the house. Here is the link to check yours.
Seen on the highway in front of the house, on the bridge in town, and over by the fairgrounds....not by me, alas, or there would be pictures.... An Amish horse, hooked to a wagon, with another horse tied to the tailgate, hooked to yet another wagon....like a tandem with a horse in the middle. Guess the rig held up traffic on the bridge for ages, as the rear horse was not excited about following the front horse and wagon. I assume the guy was attempting to train the horse on the rear cart to travel in traffic and pull something behind him.
At any rate he tied him up to the new posts in front of the fairgrounds entrance and went down to the river to get him some water. You just never know what you will see in small town, Upstate NY. Huntin' season south opens this weekend BTW. I generally share a link to the state's laws on trespassing for all the folks who think that little bit of paper is a license to trot through pasture and cornfields willy-nilly. And here it is.
