A jogger, running down a country road, is startled as a horse yells at him,
"Hey! Come over here, buddy!" The jogger is stunned, but runs over to the fence where the horse is standing and asks, "Are you talking to me???"
The horse replies, "Sure am! Listen, I've got a problem. I won the Kentucky Derby a few years ago, but then this farmer bought me, and now all I do is pull a plow. I'm sick of it. Why don't you run up to the house and offer him $5,000 to buy me? I'll make you some real money, 'cause I can still run."
Dollar signs go off in the jogger's head. So he runs up to the farmhouse, where he finds the old farmer sitting on the porch.
The jogger says, "Say, old man, I'll give you $5,000 for that old, broken-down nag you've got out in the field."
Says the farmer, "Son, I know what you are thinking, but you can't believe everything you hear. He's never even been to Kentucky."
