The Horse Trainers

One past student and two current ones, (brothers, one junior, one eighth grader, whose mother is on staff,) came out to help me halter break BOYOBOY, the colt who is going to be auctioned off for the coach's benefit Saturday, Feb. 5th. at five. Although all of the boys had been pills to work with in the classroom at times, on the farm, they were uniformely a pleasure to have around.

When I got home, I noticed that several of the young mares were in full heat at present, with two teasing Debut over 6' high native oak lumber fence and two more working on OMYNO, the young stud, over the gate. "Great," I thought. "That ought to keep things lively."

Hearing the truck come up the hill, I threw on my jacket and went out. When they got out of the truck, J., who always had trouble in junior high running his mouth when it was inappropriate, started out saying, "Gate holders get $5.00 an hour, and if it goes over an hour even one minute, they get a second hour's pay."
