913. Post-apocalyptic horses

The nuclear war was kindest of all to horses, which grew into gigantic, six-legged beastly things.
These four, in particular, were named after Renee Zellweger roles.
That wasn't so bad given the names of the farmer's children: Muck, Mire, Dirt, Crud, and Sludge.
The nine of them - the four horses and the five children - bounced along the crooked path fleeing the farmer's anger.

912. Red menace

That's when the ladybug bit.
Do ladybugs bite?
He obsessed over the question as he scalded the bite under the tap.
Maybe it wasn't a ladybug at all - just something worse.
