    LOL! Oh yes, he gets all glassy eyed and I can hear the wind whistling in his brain and blowing out the other side. I made him go with me to an auction the other day, I could tell he'd rather have been home scrubbing the toilet with his toothbrush than to sit through that, but he was a pretty good sport about it all. I took him out for Sushi when we were done, he appreciated that at least.

    He understands the frame to frame thing but.......A conversation we just had at dinner time today:

    Him< "So, you said you would sell Boo if she tested positive for HYPP, right?"
    Me, "No, she can't test for HYPP, she's got no Impressive.".

    Him, "Oh that's right, it's Skippy that's positive."
    Me, "NO, Skippy is N/N, he was tested before he could be registered as a foal."

    Him, "Ok, so you'll geld Skippy if he's frame then."
    Me, "NO, Skippy isn't frame."

    Him, "WTH? ONE of them has something that you said you would sell them for."
    Me, "I said that if the foal tests positive for HYPP, if it's not OLWS, that I would geld a colt immediately and I would sell a filly. I will not deal with HYPP."

    Him: "But you said you'd sell Honey if.......What? I can't remember."
    Me, "OOOOH Ok, I did say that if Skip came back as a frame carrier I would think about selling Honey. But, you know, I think I'd rather just find a different horse to breed her to because I really like this mare a lot. And, what I paid for her.......I stole her. Big, Beautiful, Sweet, makes awesome babies and broke to ride......I don't know if I can replace her. Besides, he's not a carrier so it's not an issue. It's the stallion she's in foal to."

    Him: "OOOH OK, I keep forgetting she's in foal to an outside stallion. You never use outside stallions. You'd buy a breeding to an outside stallion just to keep Honey and be able to breed her? I don't like her that much."

    Me, "Well, just remember, you didn't like Lady Bug all that much at first either. And then you fell in LOVE. I think Boo will grow on you. Give her time."

    We've had that exact conversation at least 5 times since I bought the mare!

    Oh my gosh that is so funny...do you think he actually tries to keep or and just can't or just doesn't listen all the way?

    I seriously suspect it's a male genetic thing, "Selective Deafness". We'll never breed it out.

    I just tried to read my husband your conversation. He was completely lost. Although, we could check for "selective deafness" before marrying them ;) Oh wait, no one would ever get married then!! Lol

    It's funny, he just can't keep all the genetic stuff in his head, but he can spot a pregnancy change QUICK. He commented to me tonight that, "She looks dropped from this time last week and her bag is bigger. Still no wax though.". What's impressive about that is, he'll let ME wear a t-shirt inside out to TOWN and never notice but he spotted all that from 25 ft. Never got close or touched her. Go figure.
