Ever Have One Of Those Days...?

You know the kind I mean...where the smallest and most innocent of activities can lead to some really embarrassing moments? Well, it appears that we humans aren't the only ones that have them. This horse is having a really bad day just because he wanted to explore the fork in this tree.





Sorta makes you feel like you are not totally alone in all this mess, doesn't it? I mean, if you and me and even horses can have these kind of days when all we wanted to do was just have a little bit of fun, live our lives, and NOT get our heads stuck in places they shouldn't be...then obviously the world just isn't fair!

Luckily, a friendly passing rancher just happened to see the trouble this poor guy was in and stopped to help. With a carefully placed chain saw, the rancher was able to remove the tree branch from around the poor horse's head, but not before snapping a couple of pictures.

Maybe some poor passing rancher will stop and lend us a hand...oh, sorry! I forgot. Ranching is being run out of business because of additional taxation by the government to pay for banking bailouts and new road construction and auto industry bailouts...

Looks like we are on our own! So why don't we just sit back, relax and take a deep breath, and I'll put on a fresh pot of coffee...!

Thank God he saved the tree! He removed the horses head with a chainsaw?

Hey Treesong...glad you could drop by. A friend in Ne Zealand sent me the pics...glad you enjoyed them!

Have a good one!


Hey Catman...Whoops!! Thanks or spotting that mistake...as you noticed, I have corrected the phrase, so the horses hed is NOT removed by the chainsaw, only the tree!

How do those who are both Extreme animal rights and environmental activist handle this one? (And i mean EXTREME here, folks- i'm an animal lover and revere nature myself.)

Tree, or hours? Horse or tree?

Hey Angela...glad to have you drop by! I'm glad you are enjoying the blog and making folks smile a little is a goal I work toward.

Have a good day and don't be a stranger, OK?

HermitJim said...

Wouldn't matter to me!

OM I'm just glad the poor thing was ok lol

HermitJim said...

Hey Molly...
From what I understand, the horse had a slightly dislocated jaw...but is doing just fine now!

Thanks for coming by for a visit!

Nomad said...

lol. Everyday I sit in bumper to bumper traffic I'm having one of those days.

HermitJim said...

Hey man...I can sympathize, believe me! Being recently retired, I am so glad to be free of the grind of the back and forth warzone of rush hour traffic!

That, and NOT having to deal with John Q. Public anymore, was reason enough to retire early...and I would do it all over again!

Just hang in, my friend. It will all be over soon! (rush hour, I mean!)
