Here’s a secret for drought-ridden regions: Wash your car or truck … and it will surely rain at the barn.
Last summer, much of the American Midwest suffered serious droughts. Many areas still face hay shortages. Bale prices are sky-high in some parts.

How can we employ Turfy’s A-Z Rules of Horsemanship? Keep washing those cars and trucks, and the rains will come.

The Mane Point is participating again in the April A to Z blogging challenge, posting daily with alphabetical entries.
For this year's A-Z event, a month of posts will offer Turfy’s A-Z Rules of Horsemanship, with all due apologies to the original Murphy of Murphy’s Law, which basically said, "If anything can go wrong, it probably will."
