Most people that know me might not ask too many horse questions unless they want to really know the answer. I think all my co-workers know more about my horses than they do about their own husbands! HaHaHa! Love it! I usually try to stop when I see their eyes start to glaze over...or not...HaHaHa! Could talk about horses indefinitely.

My friends and coworkers are learning not to tell me that they have a horse, or went for a ride, etc....
I'm always like, what breed? What color? What style of riding?
Then they're like "ummmmmmmmm...." LOL!
My family thankfully knows a bit of what I'm saying and listens.

most of my friends are horsey, my family (Dad/sis) aren't, my hubby doesn't ride but likes the horses......my kids aren't into them but the grandkids love to ride the horses when they are out here...

My horses are the joy in my life.....

Yep, that happens to me all the time. The blank stare, the awkward silence, the hand shaped like a gun pointed to the temple... I get it all! I don't know any horse people outside of my barn so no one ever wants to talk about horses. Except for my dad. He isn't really a "horse person" but he likes them and he tries to be interested. I think the people I know at my barn don't even want to talk about their horses as much as I do! I'm a horse nerd.

I could talk about my horse all day if someone was willing to listen, which is why I joined the forum! Now I sit in the living room with my family and tell them about things I am reading about on here! Even better! Horse talk about horses that aren't even mine! I'm surprised I haven't been kicked out to the barn permanently.

Ha ha! The other day, I ran into a new neighbor who moved in down the block (of course we have a LONG "block"...) about a month ago. They have 2 QH/Arabian cross. The girl there is only 1 year older than me. We started talking about our horses, and before I knew it, I got a call from the house saying "Where have you been? You went to buy some popcorn, and have been gone for almost 3 hours!!!"

Oops.....

LOVE IT!!
Funny how time is different when a horse is involved.

I always tell my spouse~ I'll be gone 2 hours max....4 hours later I come walking back with my horse.
I tell him, I just have to untack, I'll be quick....1 hour later.
Go out to feed..should take 15 minutes...45 minutes later.

I tend to try to sensor myself. It's better for everyone that way.

I had one of my best rides yet today and I am itching to just yell out loud about how amazing it was, but no one here will understand. It gets pretty frustrating.
