An out-of-towner accidentally drives his car into a deep ditch on the side of a country road.

Luckily a farmer happened by with his big old horse named Benny.

The man asked for help and the farmer said Benny could pull his car out.

So he backed Benny up and hitched him to the man's car bumper. Then he yelled:

Pull, Nellie,

Benny didn't move.

Then he yelled"

Come on,
Pull, Ranger!

Still, Benny didn't move.

Then he yelled really loud:

Now pull, Fred....
pull hard!

Benny just stood there.

Then the farmer nonchalantly said:

Ok, Benny...
now pull.

Benny pulled the car out of the ditch.

The man was very appreciative but curious. He asked the farmer:
I really appreciate that, but why did you call your horse by the wrong name three times?

The old farmer replied:

Why, old Benny is blind and if he thought he was the only one pulling, he wouldn't even try.
