A farmer's view of tax day
Two more rows in this sun. Straight! Can’t blame that fool horse I’m the brains he’s the brawn. Turn ‘im left. One to go. >D'rn it's hot.< He’ll be thirsty. There he goes, pickin’ up to get to the water. Six hours plowin’, he’s earned it, let ‘im have his head. I won’t make it without ‘im. Best horse I’ve ever had. This year ’ill be different. Good rain. Best horse. Good seed. Let me get this plow off you boy. D–n you’re a good horse. Let’s get you inside to the good water. Only horse I’ve see that didn’t wander off from the water trough. Extra oats for him today. Good horse. I’ll move you fool. Let me brush this sweat off ya. D–n! Taxman. I’ve already told him I don’t have anything. He’s not really comin’ into the barn? You don’t want to be in here mister. I’ll meet you outside once I finish with my horse. 5 minutes. What did he say? You can’t get blood from a stone buddy. You take the land or the tools or even the animals and you won’t get nothin’ cause I won’t have nothin’. He better lower his voice or he’s going to spook this horse. That would be fun to watch though, let this horse at him. HOLY S–T! Don’t laugh. Drag ‘im out. He’ll never set foot in my barn again. How’m I gonna pay these taxes?

The last thing I would do is discount it! As soon as I read that I had images of shire horses come flooding back from various stages across almost as many years.PJS wrote:As it's from seventy years ago and more you may discount it on that fact alone.) But "pull" is what they do from the farmer's POV; to a little boy climbing on the fence, they seem to "lean" into the work.
