This is really more of a funny story, but it's funny and I love telling all of my horsey friends about it!
My boyfriend and I were at a rodeo for the night, and we had just set up our camp next to these people who had a few horses, two of which were a beautiful QH mare with her few-month old foal, who was wearing a halter. When we had finished setting up, 2 of my boyfriends friends came over to say hello. We were talking and stuff, when one of his friends turns this pasty white and his mouth drops open like he has just seen a yetti. We were wall like "What, what's wrong!?". Then he lift his arm and pointed shakily to the mare and foal. "THAT HORSE JUST HAD A BABY! OMG LOOK, IT'S JUST HAD A BABY!" and then his other friend replied, "OMG IT HAS TOO! THAT HORSE JUST HAD A BABY! IT WASN'T THERE BEFORE! OMG!". I just starred at them like "Are you freaking serious..." while my boyfriend tried to tell them that she didn't just have a foal. We ended up talking them out of telling the owners about their mares "sudden birth", but they still went and told all of our friends how they "Saw a baby horse being born". Alcohol + Horses + Non-Horsey people= Plenty of laughs
