I'll tell you a story.
Once upon a time, in a low-income area known as the Missouri butthole ( oh I meant bootheel), I was shoein' some pissheads and pickles for some hillbillies. The neighbors were some fancey, ritzey type folks. The kind of people that pay someone to change their oil like they're too good to do it theirselves. Which we don't care much for much around here. So the fancey lady comes over and introduces herself and says they have a stallion they need trimmed in the "natural way". So I do some quick hillbilly arithmetic and figure they have twice as much money as most people I shoe for, so ill charge em twice as much. Oh plus it's a stallion, so add $20. And double that again for the "natural trim" complete with mustang roll. So I head over to their barn to do my first $120 trim.
When I arrived at the uppity barn they were leading the stallion out to the breeding dummy. For those who haven't seen one of these, just picture a pommel horse with a 3 inch PVC pipe inserted in the business end. They cost about the same as a used aluminum horse trailer. They're used by people who think their stud is too valuable to get disciplined by a real mare.
Well, apparently they had left the breeding dummy outside all year and the hole was full of yellow jackets. The stud got a sore wee-wee and wouldn't even look at the dummy ever again. Now that's a real horse story
