Being a Horse Nut.

Does anyone else have this problem?..... You're sitting at the table, hanging out with friends, or just talking to ANYONE who is not as crazy about horses as you are..... Some one asks you, "So, how's (insert horse's name) doing?", So, you tell them all about what's been going on, how they've been behaving, -they did this while training, - they're good at this, -and then she decided to roll in the mud!!

You look up, and everyone is staring at you.... Now you feel like you may have over done it......

I get this alot. Even from people who also like horses.... But like is about as far as they go...

There is nothing I love more, than getting into a conversation with another horse nut, and going on for hours and hours about horses!!! Just wondering if anyone else is like this...

Oh dear, thank god....I thought only I got the *blank stare of doom* from people, I tend to get carried away talking about my mare.....I've had to learn to curb my tongue lmao! When people ask about her now, I say ooh she's doing great, unless its one of my few horse crazy clients or friends then we just blablablablabla LOL!

The blood runs hot in the Thoroughbred and the courage runs deep. In the best of them, pride is limitless. This is their heritage and they carry it like a banner. What they have, they use. - C.W. Anderson

A lot of my friends have told me to shut up (Jokingly) about my horse! And my sister tells me that a lot, if I talk about her to much!

happens way too often. If I'm not at the stable, then no one I know likes or knows horses.
