There are few things in life as annoying as a bad manure fork when one is cleaning corrals. Bad in this case is a metal-handled beast that has lost the rubber grip portion. Without the rubber grip the resulting leather glove on smooth metal routine means the fork rotates quickly when loaded and picked up. Tonight that came to an end when I stopped by the feed store and picked up a wooden handled fork on the way home. Life the way it should be.
