    Random non-horse person- "Are you a real cowgirl?"
    Me-"Nope, I just like to play dress up."
    Random non-horse person-see Keanu Reeves picture above, and insert chirping crickets.

    "why are you putting that horrible thing on the horses' heads? They can't see and that is CRUEL!" > neighbor about fly masks

    "You gotta do WHAT to the horse's penis?! WHY?! I mean won't that make him want to...um....be horny?"> DH who is not a horse person, but is learning.

    "Horses don't need anything right? Like you can put them in a field and they will just eat the grass and you can go ride when ever you want, right? They don't really cost money."> Other neighbor

    "Oh...you must have lots of money because you have TWO horses. Wow." > Friend

    "The saddle fits fine. It's made for a QH and she is a QH." > Relatives about their horse's ill fitting tack.

    "You horses are outside during the winter? How cruel." > co worker

    "Your'e lying....you don't ride. You can't ride a horse unless it has shoes. Other wise you would hurt their feet." > classmate when I was in school.

    Dang, there are million of them. It seems every day I run across someone who makes a "duh" statement about horses. Some times it's funny and some times it's a "face palm". At least I know I am not alone out there. Keep 'em coming guys.

    I was taking car of a horse once and the brand of halter was "walsh" and one girl proudly walked up and announced "THIS, IS A WALSH PONY!"

    Made my day!

    No, not thinking you would have to worry too much about the flames if you were standing in front of that rifle
    Bah ha ha...really????

    I heard (second hand) that someone at a trail place once asked if horses are born with shoes on.

    Yes, that's why you have to feed them lots of iron.

    Great thread!!!

    "Your horse stays outside in winter?? But he's freezing!"
    "Why aren't your arms strong? You said you ride horses, that means you have to steer their heads using physical power, isn't that right?"
    "Doesn't it hurt walking, if he has no shoes? "
    "Horses are just so dumb, with their big heads and glassy eyes. I used to see one in childhood and he was just standing around." (lulwut??)
    "Riding is easy. I once sat on a horse, it walked and trotted a little and I didn't fall off. You must be just imagining things that training is essential."
    "What does "gelding" mean? WHAT??? "

    I will try to remember some more! Oh, and I was once challenged by a guy who is a fan of extreme sports to compete with him in galloping, because he thought riding is sooo easy, just sitting on a horse and holding on, and steering really hard with hands - though he had never been on a horse before.

    This one is a little off-topic, cattle related...

    It has horns, so it means it's a bull, right????

    Sure....*eye roll*

    Sorry, mildot, but I cringed to think about a horse, possibly hurt by a macho dumbass, so no, I didn't. Apart from wanting to compete in galloping, he wanted the race to take place in a dense pine forest, so his legs were praying to be ripped off against a tree...
