    Well, the King didn’t say what kind of shoes had to be put on the horse.

    For want of a nail the shoe was lost for want of the shoe the horse was lost for want of the horse the knight was lost for want of the knight the battle was lost for want of the battle the king was lost all for the want of a nail.

    I don’t believe a dumb animal like my dog or cats could outsmart me. I want to feed, water, pet, and pick up their poop. They do what I want.

    RADISH We all know the saying but who’s the author?. Don’t tell me Annie Moose. One person couldn’t have written that much.

    That horse’ll have pretty big shoes to fill when he retires.

    When the going gets tough, Rodney goes shopping.

    Lewreader: According to Wikipedia (http://tinyurl.com/yen7tgc),

    “This proverb has been around in many variations for centuries (see historical references below), and describes a situation where permitting some small undesirable situation will allow gradual and inexorable worsening. The rhyme is thus a good illustration of the ‘butterfly effect’, and ideas presented in chaos theory, involving sensitive dependence on initial conditions; the initial condition being the presence or absence of the horseshoe nail. At a more literal level, it summarizes the importance of military logistics throughout the history of human warfare.

    “An important thing to note is that these chains of causality are only seen in hindsight. Nobody ever lamented, upon seeing his unshod horse, that the kingdom would eventually fall because of it.

    “A somewhat similar idea is referred to in the metaphor known as The Camel’s nose.”

    A very long-winded version of “I dunno….”

    It’s the kings fault. Horseshoeing is done by professionals.

    At least he didn’t think the king said ‘shot’.

    I have shod them and I’d say he probably turned the nail around and it went into the quick. That invites a good kick.
