Hoss in the kitchen

All this livestock, runt pig, pearl guinea, lambs and other livestock in the house talk has got me to travellin down mem'ry lane.
I 'member when I was maybe 10 or 12, dad bought a buckskin stallion. He was good natured and easy to handle but he was still a stallion.
Anyway, dad was so proud of his purchase that when the hoss was unloaded, he decided to lead him up to the house to show my mother. There was a little alcove in front of the kitchen door and about 3 steps leading up into the kitchen. Dad lead the hoss over and hollered for ma to come look. When she opened the door, that hoss clim right up them steps and was in the kitchen where there weren't hardly room enough for him to turn around as quick as you could blink. The floor had linoleum and was quite slippery, especially for a hoss. Dad managed to get him turned around and back outside the house without him going into a panic and thrashing hiself or the kitchen to pieces. We laughed about that for a long time.

My memories are of the flood of 79..We had turkey chicks roosting on the drapes in the house cause the chicken coop was under water. Thank the lord the wife saw the humor of having to launder the curtains...even tho it took her till thanksgiven to realize it...

That's too funny!

Today when I was driving back from taking Beny to school was a boy, maybe 13y/old, running after a ponny. A beautiful and playful
[playfool LOL!] young one for sure! Had the boy chasing him all over the place, the boy had some sort of harness..don't know. But the horsey looked as if that harness did not had his name on it. I stopped a bit for a while to see whether the boy would get the thing on the horse but I got tired of watching. I'm sure the boy had a lonnnnnnng morning today.

I came up on a Amish farmer chasing his team of four horses, all hitched together. They were out in front and he wasn't gaining on them.

yabbut bring a sick calf in the kitchen to warm up and it ain't so amusing; least according to paula. admitedly it wasn't "housebroken" or when them dumass goats pushed open the backdoor and stampeded across our bed at 5am. she didn't appreciate the humor in that either...

Wayyyy back when there was an old bachelor
farmer came back to the farmhouse with his
hired hands and there was a goat tied to the
footboard of his bed. Needless to say he
became the butt of many an adult joke.

To his dying day he blamed Renee's uncle for
the stunt as do many people from the area. He
claims he had nothing to do with it.

And I bet that kitchen smelled good...

Dennis The Menace came into his Mas' kitchen once and his only comment was...

"It sure smells happy in here"...

Outside of a little extra dirt on the floor, I don't remember that there was any other extraneous "material". The whole thing happened in less than 10 seconds.
It probably did smell a little horsey in there for a short while.

Not what I meant...

I was trying to compliment your Ma for having (what I assume) is a kitchen that smelled and felt like home to YOU, so why wouldn't the horse feel at home too...
