Title: Priesthood blessings for animals
Comments: This is a little bit off but in the same vein. My Mom told me of a gentleman in the ward where she grew up. He routinely gave blessings to the animals on his farm. Mom said Grandpa went to visit this man and was with him as the guy anointed his car and blessed it. He felt the car was ailing, he needed it for his family, livelihood, and farm, and saw no good reason not to use his faith and the priesthood to aid it. That didn't become a standard practice in the ward although apparently the car was repaired and worked for a good while afterward. Mom had quite a few stories about this gentleman's eccentricities.
