I recently bought The Old Farmer’s 2015 Almanac. I was looking thru the book last night. At the back of the book was this story.
Even if it’s a team of one.

During the worst blizzard of the century. Mike the mailman was making his deliveries. Unfortunately, his mail truck skidded off the road into a snow bank. After struggling out of it, he walked to the nearest farm house seeking help.
The farmer agreed to help Mike and led him into the barn where he introduced him to Tiny, a huge draft horse that he harnessed up. As the farmer grabbed a heavy towrope, the trio set out.
At the scene of the accident, the farmer hooked the rope to both Tiny and the mail truck, and then yelled, “Pull, Sam! Pull, Blaze! Pull, Jack! Pull, Tiny!”
To the mailman’s great relief, the truck was back on the road and undamaged. He thanked the farmer and then asked, “Did you forget your horse’s name? You said, ‘Pull, Sam! Pull, Blaze! Pull, Jack!’ before you said, ‘Pull Tiny!”
“No, I didn’t forget his name,” said the farmer. “Tiny is blind, and if he thought he was the only one pulling, he wouldn’t have done a damed thing!”
Wow! What a powerful message, “Team Work”! I hope you enjoyed the story as much as I did.
