There are all sorts of rules about farming and ranch life. Leave the gate the way you found it. Never turn your back on a dairy bull. Pigs will bite the hand that feeds them. If you try to carry eggs in anything but an egg basket (which reminds me, I need to go get them out of the four-wheeler saddlebags) at least one will wind up cracked or broken. If rain is predicted and you water the garden, it won’t rain. If rain is not predicted and you wash the pickup, it will rain. The setting hen will always take over the box where everyone else wants to lay eggs, resulting in squabbles and broken eggs (lots of ranch rules about broken eggs…).
And one of the most important: always make sure you’ve found all the hay hooks when you’re done hauling the hay. Because that last one has a sort of Murphy’s Law corollary.
Unfound hay hooks will wind up in a tire.
