    I don't talk much about my horses to non horse people. Heck, I don't even talk to horse people much about my horses. If they ask, I'll answer. It is a passion. Not a lot of people can say they have a passion. They have hobbies but not a deep passion. Horses are expensive and a lot of work, but I can't picture my life without them. It would be very difficult to deal with and a hollowness would always remain.

    I guess I just surround myself with people who appreciate what my obsession is. If they aren't into horses or animals in general, then I have nothing really to talk to them about (ok my kids are a good subject). Love me....Love my Horses!

    I like how you think. The more people I meet the more I enjoy my animals..

    One more.

    "Yes, mastering riding and horsemanship requires obssesive attention. For me, it's totally worth it."

    Several people on this board have a quote in the sig lines about riding is not a gentle hobby, to be put down or taken up like a hand of cards, but a grand obssession. That's a paraphrase, but it's a very good and accurate quote.

    Just reply, "Naming my kids Secretariat, Ruffian & Zenyatta does NOT make me obsessed!"

    There is nothing wrong with being horse crazy or obessed with horses as long as you don't bore somebody to death talking about it. I didnt realize this until my boyfriend only talked about dirtbikes. However this person needs to be respectful of your passion for horses
