I love these sooo much! Too hilarious!

I've had a friend that calls the numnah a blanket...

Also, at my old boarding stable there was a cribber, and when my one friend saw this, she immediatly ran over and loosened the cribbing collar and told me that the horse's idiot owner put his collar on too tight.

That same friend overheard someone saying they need brushing boots for their mare, and she came up to me and said, "I don't know how on earth you would brush your horse with your boots..."

Classic....

I have a friend with a gorgeous paint mare. She has a bald face and two glass eyes. When I tell people this they always feel so sorry for her. "The poor thing is blind and has fake eyes?!?" Some even think bald face is literal.

Well, My gelding has this habit of letting his uh. . 'thingy' hang out after I've ridden him and while he's eating. My sort of horsey friends see this and just freak out. There faces are absolutely hilarious.

Well, why on earth wouldn't they? They probably think you are speaking English.

You know, about half of the supposedly hilarious things in this thread are really cases where instead of using normal everyday language, you've made up your own private meanings - like calling a white horse grey, or having a special word for a saddle blanket - then act amused when others don't understand. Hate to say this, but the joke's really on you

There are actually very few horses that are really and truly white. The vast majority are gray, regardless of what the nonhorse people think.

I don't make fun of people when they ask about my 'white' horse. I tell them he's actually gray, and explain why.

Many things nonhorse people say are unintentionally hilarious, but I try to set them straight as politely as possible. It's the ignorant ones who insist they're right no matter what, at whom I'll roll my eyes and laugh.

No one knows everything. I know I've asked some boneheaded things about certain sports, and when I'm corrected I thank the person for the information. I don't insist I'm right, especially since I really know nothing about it.

Each hobby/past time has its own language. Unless you're immersed in it, you won't know the terminology. That can and does make for some very funny comments.

I have been around horses for...well a very long time. Though I would have surmised the meaning of two glass eyes if it was given to me in a conversation like that I can honestly say I have not ever encountered that term for what I assume are blue eyes.

I have to agree with the posters who say that just because we (horse people) have our own language does not mean others are stupid for not knowing it.

Best one I have seen is an amatuers ad to try and sell her horse. The horse is 15.2hh. But according to her it is HUGE and listed it for sale as being 18.7hh. I had to tell her that:

1) the horse was only 15.2hh
2) there is no such thing as ".7" because the ".0" only goes up to three!

As well as that. It is OTT...yet her 3 YEAR OLD rides it....



Ahem.

Spirit, there's a difference between being unintentionally funny and downright lying. Sounds like the person with the 3 y/o OTTB was doing the latter.
