Luck money

Recommended Posts

I sold a trailer for a lad this week, sold it to a traveller, deal was done and money paid. When he weighed me in he asked about his luck money, a little touch back out of what he paid, I gave him a drink for his cheek. Have you heard of luck money?

Very common when buying livestock at auction or dealing with farmers in general, or at least was when I was a lad.

Same as skyhuck suggests! Being from farming background, used to get offered “luck money” on sale of a cow / sheep etc at auction!
Think those times have faded though!
