Funny/Interesting things your non-horsey relatives or friends have said.
I just recently got my first horse. She was given to me by some friends. Before I got her, I showed my family some pictures of her. When my Uncle heard she was a Quarter Horse he said, "They could have at least given you half a horse! Why only a quarter?" LOL!!
Then my grandma looked at a picture of her resting one of her hind legs and remarked, "See, she's lame!"
They love to tease me, but its funny some of the remarks they make. First time I talked to them about "green" horses or horses with feathers they looked at me kind of strange.
I have fun telling kids that my horse has frogs. They are like, "Really? Where??" I tell them, "They have them under their hooves." Then they say - "Wouldn't they get squished?" LOL!
