Cool I Only Do It For Your Benefit.......

Dear Horse,

As much as it may surprise you I clean out your hooves for your benefit. I know, I know shocker right? Who knew? But trust me it is.

Therefore I would just like to say that I do not appreciate you CONTINUOUSLY flicking your tail into my eyes when I clean your back feet.

And don't even try to use the old fly excuse because I know better than to believe that one. Because instead of flicking your tail the way you would for a fly you purposely flick it ONLY in the direction of the foot I am cleaning. If I am working on your right foot the "fly" appears to only be on the right side near my eyes and visa versa. But believe me if there was a fly infront of my eyes I would see it...unless of course I was blind, but I'm not so there is no need for you to use your tail to "save" me from a "fly".

So please from now on keep the tail flicking to when I am working on your front hooves. That way I'll actually be able to see where the dirt is without my eyes stinging because they were tail-whipped.

Love You Dearly,
Your ever adoring owner,

P.s. Thanks Zippy. Just because the top my undies were sticking out of my pants a little while I was cleaning your front feet DOES NOT give you the right to grab them and give me a wedgie.

Horses ~rolls eyes~ gotta love them

Okay, that seriously made me chuckle! Sounds like something I'd write to Aires...especially the part about the wedgie.

Do not tell me I can't...because I will show you that I can.

haha thanks guys.....I'm glad this brightened your day! =)

And people say horses(as well as other animals) are dumb and don't have personalities. Perfect example of how they do haha. TC and Phantom whenever I pick out their back feet I get a flicking tail in my eyes EVERY TIME. And Zippy is such a prankster (grabs his feed tub and runs from you when it's feeding time, grabbing your hair and HOLDING it not pulling and then waiting for you to realize it, and now his latest....he realized if he grabs whatever that piece of cloth is by my backside it will result in a hilarious and entertaining noise.) He's 6 now I wonder if he'll ever grow out of the horsey pranking.

Seriously gotta love them...how could you not?

Thanks for the laugh! GIRL, I FEEL YO PAIN! Callie does this to me too! It is so true that all animals are unique and have different personalities.

I am in love, with what we are, not what we should be.

Heh heh.

My mother's horse has "flies" too. Although I swear she could slice one right in half, her darned stringy tail is so SHARP!! Hurts!

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.
