I will admit that I snapped at my daughter on Christmas day because she was driving me crazy with the horse talk. I love our horse, but sometimes enough is enough! I felt bad afterwards, but I just couldn't take it anymore.

I recently had my hair cut (that one time of year!!). Talking with a hairdresser became awkward when she realized I didn't have kids to chat up, and she revealed she's never been around horses. Conversation stopper.

Finding common ground to chat about while cutting my hair was...interesting.
It all comes back to the weather.

I show the same reactions when parents talk about their kids, sports fans talk about their teams, etc.

That is hilarious, Cat, because I just got my hair cut last weekend, and my hair dresser was telling me all about the christmas cookies she made, while her coworker was telling her client next to me about her horse. I just wanted to say to my hair dresser, "please shut up, they are talking about horses and I'd like to join in!"

Of course I didn't..... Most of my friends think I'm just crazy. People from High school remember be as that Horse Nut. Horses were all over my back pack and clothes and locker...and now that school is over, and has been for years, I've changed from having horses on my back pack to horses on my car. Non horse people just don't get it. "Why is it fun to go out in the freezing cold, get covered in mud, and have horse hair all over you?? And is that HAY stuck in your hair??"

They just don't get it. And I just don't get why they don't. It is a foreign world out there, one without horses in your life. That is a world I shall never even dare to enter. 0.o

Ha ha!!! I'm so glad there's so many horse people out there! I don't feel lost in a sea of "uh... that's nice." I guess that's why we're all on here then, right!?

I raced cars for most of my life. Now anyone asks how my racing is going, they get a whole this gelding or this mare that. Instead of this trans Or that motor. Lol

Oh man, story of my life! In real life I'm deprived of people I can talk to about horses. People probably think I'm weird because I have nothing interesting to talk about, really, besides horses! And I learned a long time ago that most people could really care less about horses, and even if they are the slightest bit interested, they usually don't understand what I'm saying.

Haha! I'm very lucky because most of my family is horse-oriented. My friends on the other hand are stuck between doing the nice thing and gagging me! Most people tune out and give me blank stares after "Oh! Biddy is amazing! Just the other day..."

Strength lies within the heart but the strength to trust lies between the horse and his rider.

This happens to me all the time. Alot of my friends arent horse people and I just get a blank stare when I talk about horses. I have very few friends I can actually talk to about horses where they dont think I'm some crazy girl who only talks about horses lol.

unfortunately i am the ONLY horse nut must people know. Kinda sad. my friends and my teacher know they better not stay on any topic that has to do with horses for too long because then they are going to be in a for a long talk. i do sometimes wish my friends would stop introducing me to people as the crazy girl who spends all her time with horses. so the blank stare or the corny horse jokes is quite common thing with me. oh well i have learned to stop talking about horses so much.

I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.
