Well I'm definately going to steal a couple! (Because I'm pretty sure everyone read my mind and robbed them from me anyway!)

I'm a tack collector. I have 4 bridles for my two horses. =p I will soon have 2 saddles, a harness and cart (or maybe two of each). I have a bitting harness, 3 sets of polo wraps, tons of halters and gloves, four blankets. Two horses. Not quite as bad as some of you guys. =]

I also check every horse trailer for horses.

I sit in my gelding's stall and watch him eat hay. sometimes he comes over to say hi or for kisses. Sometimes when he lays down I put his head in my lap. This is usually when I'm really stressed out and need to unwind.

My mare hates me. The other day I put her in her stall and took her halter off and she went to go eat hay. I called her over to pet her and give her some love before I left, and she was sweet for a good 5 minutes. Then she started to lean into me and took a step towards the door. I pushed her back, but she pushed me out, stepped on my foot (and as I tried to grab her, i fell on my hands and knees into a fence board) and galloped away.
talk about witch! there are other incidents to add testimony. =p

I've always wanted to take my gelding trick or treating on halloween, but sadly I was never allowed.

I give my horses dozens of kisses everytime i see them. My gelding gets overspoiled with treats, but because my mare is only three I'm trying to only give her treats as reinforcement. (Smokey is always a good boy, so he deserves treats)

I am so happy my mare and gelding go out together. My gelding used to be sour to catch, but my mare comes galloping up when called. So naturally, in competition for my attention, so does my gelding. =]

I talk to my gelding more than my mare. He's more of a confidant.=]

I slow down everytime I pass a horse farm, and try to find the arena and whether there are horses in it. (and feel stupid that I think I can actually accomplish something from a 3 second glance)

I LOVE pushbutton horses. My gelding is one, at least for the 14 and under crowd.

I LOVE watching my gelding when he gives little kid lessons. He is so cute.

I want to own a farm of Morgans one day. All Champions :roll:
And maybe a Friesan. =]

I only have one horse so I really only have two web halters, three rope halters, I think I have 12 sets of reins and only two bridles lol... um two bits and about twenty-five to thirty grooming brushes and I only use about four of them. I have five hoof picks and two bottles of MTG, three bottles of Mane N Tail Conditioner and about a dozen bottles of lexol because I keep forgetting I already have some. 5 leads and one lunge line.

My biggest thing I do, since I don't really collect tack, is lay on my horse backwards and braid his tail while I'm laying on him. I do it almost every night while he eats his hay I lay there and braid his tail and he couldn't care less. :} It took me a hard time to figure out how to do it upside down hehe the fun part is taking it out before i leave.

This has turned out the be a very interesting topic! I love reading all the replies, because I notice these things in myself as well.

Some more of mine:

- I do the look in the trailer thing too... EVERY time. I try and make up a story about where they're coming from and going to.

- I will eat my lunch without washing my hands at the barn, but hate touching "yucky" things at home without washing my hands right afterwards.

- I put up with the flies at the barn no problem, but flies in my house or a restaurant... can't stand 'em. At all. Seeing flies in a restaurant makes me not hungry.

- I will wake up early to go to the barn no problem, but getting up early for work? Not a chance. I complain bitterly.

- I will scoop manure no problem, but I hate cleaning my kitten's litter box.

... alright enough for now! Keep 'em comin!

After owning my horse for six years I've gotten to know him well enough that I will carry on conversations in my head will him... all dialogue provided by me.

I'm a much better rider when people are watching, especially women.

I ride western but I feel like dressage is the ultimate legit riding discipline. I vow to myself everytime I watch a dressage show that I will become proficient in both english and western riding disciplines.

I don't think I could ever stand to live in the country.

I second those ALL the way. :} My horse's stall gets picked and re bedded with a big heaping barrel of sawdust daily. Everyone say I'm crazy because I do a barrel or two every day and fluff up his bedding and all sorts of useless stuff like and they do it every two or three days, but I'm OBSESSED with keeping my stall dryer than a desert. I like it to be dry, soft and clean looking.

Haha, more of mine:

I like horse poop, how it smells everything, better than any other kind of poop.

I do tuck my boots into my pants, but normally only when it's muddy.

I worry more about how my horse looks then how I look.

When people watch me ride I feel dumb.

One time I fell over when leading a horse when he stepped on my foot... oops

Everytime that I drive by the stable I work ( about 2 miles off the highway) I try to see if any of the horses are out in their runs....sometimes I almost crash into oncoming traffic :roll:

I've blown my friends/bf off to go ride....

Ok here is a confession I'm really ashamed about and it really bothers me. I can't get on my horse without a mounting block log or standing her in a low spot. I hate it, my husband thinks its phsycological (sp?) I feel like I'm either hurting her back or that the saddle is going to slip. I have done exercises, practiced stepping up on the tailgate of the truck you name it I don't know what is stopping me. You all should feel special that I have confessed that to you
