Smile Stuff non-horsey people say :)

I'm in need of a laugh so I was wondering what funny/cute/annoying things have non-horsey people said to you? One of my favourites is that horseback riding isn't a sport because we just sit there and look pretty. Personally, by the time that I'm done with my ride, I'm the furthest thing from looking pretty- I'm one sweaty, tired, hot mess!

I get so annoyed when non-horse people think a pony is a foal...

Or when they think every horse they see is a stallion.

I think it's funny when people ask why my horses are wearing blindfolds when they have their fly masks on.

When I tell non-horsey peops I have horses and they say "Oh, you are a cowgirl?" Um no, I don't own cows, I eat them though!

I've been told by non-horse people that owning a horse is a waste of money. They say things like "Think of everything you could be doing with all that money you spend on your horse! You could sell him and buy this and that and..." Blah blah blah... Trust me. I know how much money I spend on my horse. I know I could do other things with the money but I wouldn't be "better off", my life would be so empty if I didn't have my horse.

It's a horse owner thing, you wouldn't understand.

I had a chick ask me if my horses leg was broke when he had his hoof kicked up resting it.

Oh oh, and I had a guy ask me what was wrong with my gelding when he was, um, relaxed down there. You know what I mean. Lol. He was freaking out about it too like " oh my gosh call the vet!" Lol.

Or that a foal is a pony!

I used to get people asking me about my "pony" after my foal was born. First time someone asked me how my pony was doing I was a bit confused. Like "what pony?" Lol! After that I was more like "I sure hope he grows into a horse, I am too big for a pony!"
