    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!"

    I always remember when riding in the car with my mom and one of her friend's daughters, and when we passed a group of horses she started telling us all about her neighbor's black stallion that had a baby.

    I had a lady take a look at my then 6yo, drafty gelding and exclaim in a professional tone - Oh, I can tell he's VERY young, he still has the dainty bones of a yearling.

    Yeah, like spending $40K on a jacked-up 4WD pickup truck that never leaves payment. Or buying dirt bikes & quads to ride around on, and a fancy trailer to carry them on. And 4 horse shoes comes a lot cheaper than a pair of Jimmy Choos.

    Just think of all the money people could spend on horses if they didn't waste it on all that other junk

    I get the "You'd be rich (replace with - go on vacation, buy a new house, car, put in a pool -WTH- Don't they get it I AM HAPPY) if you didn't have to feed all those animals..." I spend less on my horses than each of my siblings spends on their hobbies and I have 11 horses. Get real. Rich is a state of mind.

    For me its when everything is regarded as "racing" as in "how was your race this weekend?"

    He's a fencer and so I responded with "yeah and you have your swording!"

    I still remember one lady that came to the barn with a friend (friend was a horseperson, this lady was not).

    She overheard me ask somebody where a certain horse's headstall was. She said, and I am NOT making this up..........

    "but doesn't all of the horse go in a stall, not just their head?"

    But didn't you know the headless horseman's horse also needs a stall for his head too.... and now this has that song about detachable male body parts making unwelcome appearances in my head.

    I don't blame people for not knowing that a pony is not a young horse – that's just a bit of trivia. What I do blame them for is thinking that it would be a good idea to put a child on a young horse. Human children are often badly behaved and difficult to control… why would they think horse- children are any different?
