Cheryl and I were cleaning the horses feet a couple weeks ago and I was mentioning that Bae was not picking her feet up like I wanted her to, and Cheryl said, “Maybe she has a demon in her anus too.”
“WHAT????,” I asked, wondering what the heck she was talking about!
“A demon in her anus,” Cheryl repeated.
“A demon in her anus?” I asked, incredulously.
“Yeah,” she repeated, “a demon in her anus, just like Mairsiedotes.
I stopped working on Bae’s feet. I left Bae’s stall. I walked over to Mairsiedotes stall where Cheryl had been stooped over cleaning Mairsiedote’s feet. Cheryl was standing up now, looking at me, hoof pick in hand.
I got up close and asked Cheryl again, quietly, “w h a t d i d y o u s a y?”
“I said,” Cheryl said, “‘Maybe Bae has edema in her ankles too, just like Mairsiedotes.”
. . . I still laugh every time I think of this . . .
