An American farmer was on holiday in outback Queensland. One lunch time he dropped into the local pub and fell into easy conversation with a cow cockie. “So how big is your ranch?” asked the American. “Well it’s about 1000 acres mate”, says the Aussie. “Only 1000 acres!” the American responds. “Back in Texas I can get up at sunrise, saddle my horse and ride all day. When I return at supper time I’ll be lucky to cover a quarter of my farm”.
“Yeh”, says the Aussie, “I had a horse like that once. Sent him to the knackers.”
