Horseshoe

Not realizing that it had just come from the forge and was still too hot to handle, he grabbed hold of the horseshoe firmly, then immediately dropped it onto the floor and as the blacksmith looked up he jammed his hand into his pocket, trying to act as if nothing had happened.

The blacksmith, noticing, asked with a grin, “Kind of hot, wasn’t it?”

“Nope”, answered the cowboy through clenched teeth, “it just doesn’t take me long to look at a horseshoe”.
