Synchronized Eating

Sadie, Scooter and Trapper enjoying some alfalfa on 05/26/18.

If you find yourself spending a lot of time on the exercise bike, maybe get some land, adopt some horses, and take up the ranching lifestyle.  Your biggest problems will be keeping weight on and getting enough sleep.

Your horses are not in stalls, right?

Don’t worry though, all that wasted fuel means extra $$$ for state and federal coffers.
