Topic tags/keywords: humor horsepower dust collector

A few weeks ago I got a used 2HP Dust Collector off Craigslist. Now, I don’t spend that much time around horses myself, but my brother is a farrier and I live in Colorado, so I’ve met a fair few. And I would like my dust collector to be far better at picking up sawdust than two horses would be. Most of the barns I’ve been in have been full of sawdust, and the horses never even pick up a broom.

(I’m sure I’m not the first person to make that joke, but it’s a mental image that’s been floating around in my head for several weeks and I thought I’d share.)

Not sure what I would want more the horses or the Dust collector. Right now probably the horses. Enjoy the dust collector.

The last horse to do any real sweeping was Affirmed, and that was a CLEAN sweep! HeHe
