Mckenzie Parker, older brother of patient Trevor Parker and I got to work today on one of Habitat for Hope’s dirty jobs – scoopin horse poo. McKenzie was eager to help out and proved he is an excellent pooper scooper. With a rake three times his size and a little “ummph oooo yeah” he would sling the poo into the wheel barrow with the “dust” (as he called it) flying and then pray, “Please don’t let them poop again.” Once again I vote for cats. Yes, they can be moody and creepy, but they are physically unable to produce that much waste.
