Vermont (I mean Oklahoma) Story from Christopher Kimball

A young man asked a Pryor horse trader what he wanted for a mare.

“I’ll take a hundred and a half for her,” the trader said. “But she don’t look so good.”

They haggled a bit and, finally, the new owner went off with his purchase. He was back again the next day and pretty riled up.

“What’s the matter with that horse,” he demanded. “She ran me right off the road.”

“Been blind for a year,” the horse trader admitted. “Told you that she didn’t look so good.”

You never know where you will hear a horse story.
