A horse of a different color

An oldie but goodie.

❧ ❧ ❧ ❧ ❧

An out-of-towner drove his car into a ditch in a remote area. A local farmer saw him and came to help with his horse, Buddy. He hitched Buddy up to the car and yelled, “Pull, Nellie, pull!” Buddy didn’t move. 

Then the farmer hollered, “Pull, Buster, pull!” Buddy didn’t respond. 

Again the farmer commanded, “Pull, Coco, pull!” Still no response. 

Then the farmer said, “Pull, Buddy, pull!” Buddy easily dragged the car out of the ditch. 

The motorist was appreciative but curious. He asked the farmer why he called his horse by the wrong name three times. 

The farmer replied, “Buddy is blind, and if he thought he was the only one pulling, he wouldn’t even try.”

  10. This is great and brought back memories of an old joke my Dad would tell over and over and each time we’d laugh our fool heads off like we were hearing it for the first time. Thanks for the laugh and the sweet memory, Blue! 💙
