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

The End

We were given a (would be) gorgeous cremello yearling colt. He came to us absolutely full of rain rot to the point he probably lost 50% or more of the fur he had on his body. He didn't know anything and was pretty much untouched and very frightened.

It took a long time and many applications of listerine mixtures and medicated baths, but he blossomed into the most beautiful horse. He is now a very handsome gelding that loves everybody and wouldn't hurt a fly. He can lead, load, stand for the farrier, has been ponied around the farm, is about as bombproof as can be, knows the basics of lunging, and is just an all around great guy. His only downfall is that he has vision problems so he used to run his head straight into things frequently, however he is used to his environment and that has subsided, however he uses his senior pasture mate as his eyes.

This is him a little after we got him, showing how bad his rain rot was before the scabs started to come off along with his fur:

Here is Casper after he was starting to get better. He's a completely different horse.
