Yall know how sometimes, clear out the blue, a memory hits you, and starts you to laughing for no apparent reason, to anyone but yourself? Well I just had me one of these, and I have got to share. This ought to stir up your imagination a little.
I had a neighbour who was into raising Emus. He called up one day and asked if we could give him a hand picking up 30 new birds that some feller was giving him. We had an open stock 2-horse angle haul at the time, and putting thirty birds into would be no problem. The problem that we did have though, was how to get them birds in there, and keep them from panicking. Well folks the solution we came up with was this. We gathered up as many wool socks as we could, and we blindfolded each bird with a sock pulled down over thier head, and then herded them into the trailer......worked like a charm!!
You shoulda' seen the looks we got driving through the city with a horse trailer full of Subway Puppets!
Hoooooey! That was sight all right!
