If you have a farm you must think every move you make over 3 times. You may end up with a cervical spine fracture SIMPLY because you opened the trap door to feed the horses below their hay.
Every animal has it out for you.On a daily basis, my cat Rosebud,greets me in the upstairs barn and purrs and rubs herself against me as I toss hay to the horses below.Many times she came upon me unawares ....from behind. Who???? ~~ In the E.R. would have believed me if I said "My cat pushed me down the trap door" ....????Of course, husband treachery would have been the prime suspect.My cats are probably the only animals that have not YET caused problematic injury to me.The others HAVE.~~~~ Sheep. Goats. Border Collies. Horses.
