Trader’s Christmas Deal

Most folks don’t know that ‘ol Santa and me
have been friends for a real long time
So whenever he needs some advice or help
he goes to a phone and he drops in his dime

So I wasn’t surprised when he called that day
Tho’ the request seemed a little bit strange
Seemed his riendeer was all just gettin’ too old
And Rudolph had come down with the mange

So he was needin’ to get some fresh stock, fast
to pull his sleigh, on his once a year trip
He’d had a few prospects lined up some time back
But it seemed that they’d given him the slip

So he wanted to know if I could find him anything
See’n as I had done some tradin’ in the past
He claimed they didn’t need to be broke all that good
But they dang sure needed to be real fast

See’n as how ol' Santy was in such a bad bind
I was pretty sure the pay would be awful good
So I just kind’a started puttin’ out some feelers
To all the local traders in my neighborhood

I wasn’t real specific about just what I needed
Claimed I was lookin’ for some “light pullin' stock"
But I kept all the particular’s kind’a vague
Like when your sellin’ at the auction block

Pretty soon I had every kind of a draft horse
Plus some hot bloods from right off‘a the track
And some prospective dog teams of Greyhounds too
So I got on the phone and called Santy right back

I told him I had just what he’s lookin for
See, I was needin’ to get this deal done right away
Told him to get his checkbook and head on down
I had a few outstanding debts I was needin’ to pay

But Santa’s a good buddy and a trusting feller
Told me just to send ‘em all and he’d pay the freight
He’d pick out the best and then he’d cull all the rest
Price didn’t matter, as long as they didn’t arrive late

So I shipped ‘em all north, each and every one
When his check didn’t bounce, it sure made my day
But yuh know, it does seem kind’a peculiar to me
‘Cuz, I ain’t heard from ol' Santy to this day!

No they postponed it until last Saturday. I didn't make it and don't know if anybody from this country did. Hopefully we will have a few this winter at the neighbors barn.

You and yours have a Merry Christmas!
:)
