Carrot Snob

Carrots taste different from bag to bag. Apparently.

A few days ago, I went out to the barn for the morning check. Mathilda refused her carrot. Usually a horse refusing food is sign to panic, as with Rodney’s recent colic episode [Rest]. However, this carrot was approaching the size of a zucchini. I’d even cut it lengthwise for ease of consumption. Perhaps she didn’t like the taste. I’ve accused her of being a fusspot before [Line]. Yup, a smaller, sweeter carrot disappeared just fine.

When you buy a 2 lb. bag of carrots, you get almost the same number of carrots as in a 1 lb. bag, just bigger. For improved taste & maximum number of treats, it is better to purchase two 1 lb. bags. The fact that we know this is a sign that we have bought far too many carrots.
