Well, what's wrong with pulling thorns out with your hands?


And I assume you mean 2.35" tires....

Here in the first world and the twenty-first century, we use needle nosed pliers for jobs along those lines. Bronze Age man would have used the tip of a knife to dig it out/push it through from tread-side.

Never mucked a stall or fertilized a garden, I'm assuming.

Yesterday I was eating chips/queso, changes my baby's diaper, then returned to eating chips/queso forgetting to wash the hands.
