It's where's Waldo...

The barnyard version

Foxy's nail was not alone out there. I've commented before how spring mud means new nails surfacing to be picked up. This year seems to be particularly bad. If I didn't know better I'd swear some evil person was throwing handfuls of the suckers over the fence!

Can you spot the nail in this picture?How about this one?
It's there, it really is.
Maybe a tad closer...


Today's haul:
And these two honkers get their own shot - YIKES!

Just ducky, isn't it?

I never liked Where's Waldo. But I'm not too bad at "find the nail." I'm sure getting lots of practice. I think I need to get myself a big magnet.

At my barn, some of the boarders chipped in to buy one of those big rolling magnets after a couple horses came in from turnout with nails through their soles!
You are right, it seems that people just throw them in by the handful! Hard to believe that all that bad stuff is out there and not more accidents.
Nice to have found your blog! :)

Ooh! Now that definitely goes on my wishlist! I'd love a rolling magnet!

I'm really good at picking out/finding nails. After Moose stepped on a huge capenter nail I became very good at spotting them. It always makes me nervous when fences have to be mended, I always go and check for left over nails.
