Smile People probably think I'm a redneck because ...

I've been caught out in the yard only in a nightgown on multiple occasions!
Yesterday I walked out the door in my skimpy nightgown, wearing muckboots, carrying a shovel, and a guy was walking around the side of the house! Friend of the former owner! I shrieked and threw the shovel at him!

Because my most worn pair of shoes are my muck boots!
Said muckboots are usually on the floorboard of the car when I go to town.

When I buy something from the store I have to pick hay, hair, and feed out of my pocket change.

I got into a fight with a chicken yesterday!

While eating with friends the table next to us were wide eyed when they overheard me wanting to kill my goat and hang his skull at the end of the driveway to freak out trespassers! My husband had to tell me that wasn't appropriate dinner conversation! LOL!

My suv had a dent on the side where my husband ran into the trailer.

Because I usually have at least 8 different bags of feed sitting next to the door in the mudroom!

Because I wear my bath robe out to feed. It's warm, fuzzy, has a "rope" I can use as a lead, halter, whip, fence tie, and the pockets are big enough for fly spray, hoof picks, curry combs, shots, and treats!

Because when people ask me what I want for my Birthday or Christmas the list usually goes: New muckboots, chicken wire, fence posts, help cutting fire wood, garden supplies, and livestock like chickens or goats! LOL! I once got the goats!

Oh, my kid went to school and told everyone how I chased a mean stray dog around the yard trying to shoot it with my shotgun, barefoot and in my pajamas! She was really proud of me!

Why would people think you are a redneck?
LetAGrlShowU, Ink and Lockwood like this.

You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!!
What do you mean what do I mean?

Hmmm... No other rednecks? I know you guys have some!^^

A while back I hauled a billy goat to my vet tec, she had lost one and I had an extra. Chained it in the back of the truck!
Had to stop and pick the kids from school first! LOL, now that got some looks!

My war cry around here is "Hunny grab yer gun!!!" Hollered that wayyy too many times!

I got caught by the neighbors when I was walking the dogs down the road in my pajamas! They were no better, they were picking poke off the side of the road!

Since I really don't care for the term redneck, I prefer to call what you do, and yes, I do it too, as horsewoman.

On a hot summer night I have gone out and sat on the corner of the fence in my night shirt late at night to admire the horses.

I often have hay in my hair, one time I even went to the store and my navy blue sweatshirt was covered with fine white hair. The check out girl raised one eyebrow so I looked down then laughed...told her I was shedding my grey!!

My favorite pair or boots are dusty, dirty, but oh so comfortably worn in. I have an older pair of leather slip on house shoes I go out into the barn in the morning and to the chicken coop to feed in. Even driven to town and back a time or two with them.

It isn't uncommon to see a dirt ring on my fanny. Though I am 44 you give me half a reason to jump on bareback and I won't hesitate!

So no, your not alone...

I prefer hiding my head in the sand when it comes to thinking about what people notice. I mean, I don't really label someone "something" b/c they are clearly dressed for golf, although I find it a rediculous activity and a huge waste of water. So, I like to believe that people are equally as "indifferent" to the way I look or the things they see me do, you know, like if the ups guy delivers a package at feeding time when its a little windy, and alfalfa leaves are stuck to my lipgloss when I sign for it, the nice man probably just thinks, "oh, she likes horses, I like golfing - everyone has their thing". Or, if I am in my PJ's at early feeding time, I put on an overcoat the looks 007-ey...a hat and sunglasses. So, I like to think the neighbors think I am probably a spook - b/c who the he** else dresses like that??? And they just look the other way. Yeah, its just easier to put your head in the sand, really.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

I tell someone I drive a tractor for a living!

When we got a new baby buckling that had to be bottle fed so he came to work with me for a month...well everywhere!

Said buckling lived in the house for that month because it was put outside because he tried to sleep in my bed! That was going a little far for me...goat in my bed!

One of my dogs kept getting into my brooder & eating my chicks so they are now in the house....till i can get a shock collar to teach her to stay away from my chickens!

I will drive my kids to the bus or school in my ugly robe if it is cold.

Pj's are cloths too!

Im sure there are more but I can't think of more right now, hehehe!

What a great thread! I am so glad that I too am not alone in my unique mode of dress...oh yes, you want to turn heads...we did a Civil War reenactment and were in the proper farm dress of that time, as we were speaking about farming with mules and drafts, etc...went into the store in my skirt, blouse and hat...the heads that turned and were in Virginia no less! Course, I was rod straight as under that 5 layers of cotton under clothes is a corset that sure gives you curves you never knew you had!
