What NOT to do in the Barnyard

 I took a trip.
It was a quick trip, but nonetheless a trip.

This trip took place in the barnyard.

This trip was scary, fast and intense. Kinda like a roller coaster ride without the safety gear.

It all happen last evening when we were having company over and I did what we call around here as a "Quick Feed". This means that we dump everything over the fence and let the horses have at it. So I just wore my flip flops down to the barn thinking I wouldn't have to step in the barnyard.

Except for one thing.

I noticed that the horses needed water.

So I got the water hose and with the water pressure at about 220psi. The hose got away from me like some wild snake. 

By the time I caught it, the area around the water tank was really wet. 

So as I headed back to the barn dragging the hose.... I was having a conversation to myself... that I shouldn't have wore flip flops down to the barn.

And that's when it happened. 

I started sliding out of control and I felt that muscles where being used that hadn't been used in about 30 years.

And I kept sliding, until I ran into the barn door. 

I then looked around to see if anyone saw me and was relieved when only 3 equines were staring at me. But then they kept on staring. Then to my relief they started to eat their hay again. 

I'm so glad that horses can't talk,
