It wasn't me, but my husband...We were at a dinner party with some friends, some were horse people, and we were talking about bathing our horses, general hygeine stuff. My husband is new to horses, so he was hanging on every word...Somehow, the subject became about cleaning the sheath! (I know, at dinner!) We all had stories, and I asked how or what caused your horse to 'drop'. Everyone shared their tips (brushing, one just did it whenever his owner came out and scratched his belly...my boy started doing it when I was out with him and had an audio book playing on the iPod...) when my hubby asked (loudly) "What does that mean? Dropping?" So, now that everyone had stopped talking and all the non-horse people were looking at me for an explanation....I tried to say it without actually spelling it out...To a lot of blank looks. Finally, with some hand gestures, and a lot of spluttering...I finally got the point across. Thankfully, everyone got it and started laughing!
It's the little things that drive me wild...
