YOU PAID FOR A YOUR HORSE TO GET A MASSAGE!!!!" No more horse massages... Yes dear... (with my fingers crossed and my tongue stuck out).....
Love it! The things we have to try to keep from our husbands..I just heard "what..you need TWO saddles?!!" Yes, dear, I plan on riding English AND Western

LMAO! I have to give him credit. He has been very patient and is even talking about getting a living quarters trailer but he does still suffer from the shock factor.

"Be a best friend, tell the truth, and overuse I love you
Go to work, do your best, don't outsmart your common sense
Never let your prayin knees get lazy
And love like crazy"

A man needs his tools. They come in handy when she who must be obeyed dents the horse trailer.

My hubby is into motorcycles (he has 2) so whenever he starts to inventory all the "horse stuff", I just counter with an inventory of all the "bike stuff". It's been a stalemate for quite some time now...


...except that I have a bike too (but with way fewer "accessories").

We understand them a lot better than they realize...irrational creatures that begin going wacko in puberty, experience temporary insanity and fits of hormonal rage for a week out of each month, morph from nuns-in-training to sadistic hedonistic monsters around 40, and then spend 10 years going through the 'pause, wearing sweat suits in the summer, Tshirts in the winter, and screaming at people for blinking. They finally get normal around 60, but their butts fall off, they get all wrinkly, their hair turns blue, and their hands turn into turkey feet...

Unless.....they had already determined to live healthy lives, be physically fit, drink lots of milk, eat lots of produce, and enjoy a glass of wine - go on good long nature treks, ski, and of course, ride horses! (or when in the 80's or 90's, just enjoy being with them) - As a member of MI Audubon, I frequently see physically fit seniors in track suits equipped with binocs out on trails! There are lots of seniors in their 80's (and one is 92!) who still downhill ski! My hay supplier is 81, and with a lifetime of healthy living and hard work has the body of a 50 yr old! As a 40 something, I feel about 32ish, and look forward to being a solid, strong, active 90 something someday! Lord willing :)

I sat down once and spent hours figuring all my yearly vet, feed, farrier, lesson, show, emergency, etc. costs because I was really going to stick it to him against what he spends on HIS stuff.

I ripped up that piece of paper into teeny tiny little shreds.....
