GLOVER — Doug Conley was at home in Glover, laid up with a bad back, when he got a call from his friend Jake Randall, who was at what’s called the world championships for pony pulling.
Mr. Randall said: “You’ve just been inducted into the New England Pony Pullers Hall of Fame.”
“I thought he was lying,” Mr. Conley said.
He wasn’t. Both Mr. Randall and Mr. Conley’s wife, Judy, knew he was about to be inducted and had hoped to get him down to Massachusetts for the ceremony.
