Know the book...Kids Say the Darnedest Things by someone whose name is on the tip of my tongue...Art somebody. Anyway..there should be a book called Horses do the Darnedest Things. We all have to horse proof the barn, stall, pasture, etc., because of the curious horse. That is a given and then there are other things out of our control.
Now here is just what took place some time last night (probably) or early this morning....I went to feed my very little "zoo" only to find my favorite rooster with one of his eyes completely out and hanging on the side of his face...oh my gosh...my stomach went queasy. He was exhausted to where I could pick him up and put him safely in the tack room. The other rooster looks like his tail feathers were pulled out too. I think this was probably a raccoon. But, on the positive side, this little rooster never had a name...now he is officially named One Eye.
I don't really think this has much to with the idea of the original posting, but i thought I would throw that in because this is animal cruelty.
