Stud fees are a sticky subject

You Little Stud Master

When you're from the country, your perception is a little different to the big city person.

A Free State farmer drove to a neighbour's farmhouse in his Toyota pickup, and knocked at the door. A boy, about nine years old, opened the door.

"Is your Dad or Mum home?" asked the farmer.

"No, they went to town", said the boy.

"How about your brother Johann. Is he here?" asked the farmer.

"No, he went with Mum and Dad," answered the boy.

The farmer stood there for a few minutes, shifting from one foot to the other, mumbling to himself.

"I know where all the tools are, if you want to borrow one, or I can give Dad a message," said the boy.

"Well," said the farmer uncomfortably, "I really wanted to talk to your Dad.... It's about Johan getting my daughter Susana pregnant."

The boy thought for a moment.......................

"You would have to talk to dad about that. I know he charges $500 for the bull and $50 for the pig, but I don't know how much he charges for Johann."
