I get the "doesn't he get hot" question when Odie has a fly sheet on.

I've had the usual comment about braiding/banding on a boy horse and how they must hate it since it's for girls (I doen't even bother explaining stud vs. gelding).

Why do I feed horses hay & grain, it looks disgusting.

Do horses get baths?

What happens when you go on vacation, do you take them to a kennel?

I'm sure I'll think of more:)

I always like "why do you even like horses? All they do is poop and eat and just stand there."

Lol right.

Beauty is not diminished by those who refuse to see, hear,feel or in any way sense it. If you refuse to see beauty its you who is weakened.

"So you've been taking lessons for over 10 years...are you not very good then? I mean, it's like being held back right? I rode a horse on vacation once and didn't even need lessons. I guess you're just really stupid to not be able to stay on after 10 years"
