Today's Fun Friday Photo really cracks me up. My daughter took this while doing a workaway on a South African farm. It shows the farm animals taking shelter during a rainstorm. When I professed surprise that farm animals couldn't stand a little rain, she explained it was a heavy downpour. The funniest parts, if you … Continue reading Fun Photo Friday: Rainy Day on the Farm

Promotion of Horseshoes and Hand Grenades began in earnest this week, but I need to take a quick break for Fun Photo Friday. Today's post is a video of a horse/actor whose specialty is playing dead.
