Orthopedic Horse Shoes

OK – my family is a little . . . uh, eccentric. My sisters moved to Paris in the early ‘70’s and today they live on a farm outside the city.  As glamorous as this may sound to you, they’re everyday Muslims who are really as plain as the Amish.

Anyway, today, I made my bi-monthly call to my brother and he said Janice called.  She wanted him to send her these special horse shoes – “only made in America” – because one of their horses was getting lame walking on the rough terrain.  The shoes cost $300.00 plus shipping.

Now no one – except a real PETA vegetarian  – loves animals more than I do.  I love them more than people (especially Cats). But as we talked, I looked down at my ripped sneakers ($19 on sale at Walmarts), shook my head, and said, “Naaay.”

If the horse was Secretariat or someone,  I would consider it.  But since the friggin’ horse is just an old, French, farm horse, I would tell it to walk real slowly and soak his hooves in four buckets of warm water at the end of the day

    I do agree, but my own sister has spent thousands on surgical procedures for her cats. A friend of mine in Florida has done the same. I have a hunch you’d go into debt for your cat. Certainly you would part with $300 for the little….

    If you want to talk eccentric, you must talk about cat owners. I read an article not too long ago which described how a parasite gets transmitted from cats to humans and essentially turns them into bots–the humans. I believe it.
