Every little cowpoke's dream

1956 Cartoon. I sure miss the days of good saturday morning cartoons! (not that I was around when this one came out!)

Now why is it almost every one of my childhood/early adult horse dreams involved FINALLY getting a horse but then the second I swing my leg over the saddle said horse becomes a tiny pony that my feet drag the ground on, or some sort of inanimate toy horse! Of course now that I have a horse my horsie dreams usually consist of running late for a class at a horse show!

Hold Your Horses

One of my favorite books of horse humor! I especially like the page about the evolution of horse trailer ownership. Where you start out thinking the tiny old 2 horse straight load is all you need and you keep upgrading and getting a bigger rig until you have the biggest most luxurious model out there!

I'm in the lower end of that scale still. I have a very nice newer 2 horse slant bumper pull but yearn for a 2-3 horse gooseneck just in the last year, no living quarters. I just need to throw a mattress up there to sleep on. I wonder how long that would last before I need the LQ with appliances, heat/air, flat screen, shower, bumpout, awning and fireplace. Alas money and a truck thats a bit too small is keeping me grounded in reality.

Paint's dry!

A cowboy walks into a bar. Upon leaving, he realizes that someone has started to paint his horse like a zebra. The cowboy yells, “Which one of you painted my horse?” A seven foot tall hulk of a man says, menacingly, “I did.” The cowboy realizes he is in trouble and replies, “Why, thank you - the first coat’s dry!”

The nuns at a small convent were happy to learn that an anonymous donor had left his modest estate to them. Each nun had been left $50 in cash to give away as she saw fit.

Each nun announced how she would spend her bequest. Sister Catherine Ann decided to give her share to the first poor person she saw.
As she said this, she looked out the window and saw a man leaning against the telephone pole across the street, and he indeed looked poor.
She immediately left the convent and walked toward the man. He had obviously known better days. The good nun felt he had been sent by Heaven to receive her offering.
She pressed the $50 into the man's hands and said, "Godspeed, my good man."
As she left, the man called out to her, "What is your name?"
Shyly, she replied, "Sister Catherine Ann."
The following evening, the man returned to the convent and rang the bell. "I'd like to see Sister Catherine Ann," he said.
The nun at the door answered, "I'm sorry, but I cannot disturb her right now. She's in the chapel. May I give her a message?"
"Yes," said the man gleefully. "Give her this $100 and tell her Godspeed came in second at Belmont."

An old country farmer had a wife who nagged him unmercifully. From morning till night she was always complaining about something.

The only time he got any relief was when he was out plowing with his old mule. He tried to plow a lot. One day, when he was out plowing, his wife brought him lunch in the field. He drove the old mule into the shade, sat down on a stump, and began to eat his lunch. Immediately, his wife began nagging him again.

Complain, nag, complain, nag--it just went on and on. All of a sudden, the old mule lashed out with both hind feet, caught her smack in the back of the head.  The kick killed her dead on the spot.

At the funeral several days later, the minister noticed something rather odd. When a woman mourner would approach the old farmer, he would listen for a minute, then nod his head in agreement; but when a man mourner approached him, he would listen for a minute, then shake his head in disagreement. 

This was so consistent, the minister decided to ask the old farmer about it. So after the funeral, the minister spoke to the old farmer, and asked him why he nodded his head and agreed with the women, but always shook his head and disagreed with all the men. 

The old farmer said, "Well, the women would come up and say something about how nice my wife looked, or how pretty her dress was, so I'd nod my head in agreement." 

"And what about the men?" the minister asked. 

"They wanted to know if the mule was for sale."
