Evil tires, evil vegetables.

I changed my mind yesterday. Instead of carrying FarmWife and Clover up the mountain, I told FarmWife that I wanted to do her a very special favor—I wanted to show her that I could pull the tire about my pasture with poise, confidence, and cucumber-coolness.

She harnessed me, affixed my homemade singletree, and hitched the tire up behind. I walked. I trotted. It was glorious! I cantered a little. (Whoops!). Then I composed myself, and decided that I had not died, and all was well. I walked some more, and trotted, and was generally composed and agreeable.

FarmWife unhitched the tire, unharnessed yours truly, and offered me a celery bite. I was so startled by its unpalatable taste that I spooked, whacking my head on FarmWife's knee. PUBLIC SAFETY NOTICE: CELERY CAN BE HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH. Luckily, it was not a hard whack, and it was not FarmWife's touchy knee. We're unscathed, and we've made friends again. The reunion involved a carrot—undeniably the best member of the vegetable family.

All in all, my day was not bad. The upshot? We now have a great deal more confidence in my future as a primo, #1 driving mule, and a great conviction that celery will not work as a mule reward.




  1. Celery? Just say no! I can't imagine Mother offering such a thing. She tried home made popcorn the other day... uh, no.

  2. I love that tire monster picture! And I agree with Bif - just say NO!

    Your fren,

  3. Good data. Cheers pertaining to offering us all a real helpful data. Keep up the great function along with continue offering us all more high quality data every so often.

  4. The tires are provided with treads on the surface that help the tires to stick to the surface of the roads. However, after a certain period, the treads on tires wear out. Abitsaving,com
