Are we horse owners crazy?

The answer is YES!!
And why are we crazy? Because we:
-turn down dates to go riding
-can wear horse grime in style
-dont care when we get up muddy and bumped around
-fall off and still smile
-get up at the crack of dawn to plait up
-love our horses more than our boyfriends
-when we jog, we hold our hands as if we are holding reins
-our horses wear better rugs than our clothes
-practice our positions on exercise balls
-taste our horses feed
-clean our gelding/stallions sheath
-wear top boots and joddies in town
-have fun scooping poop
-wear our show gear to fancy dress parties
-spend all our money on our horses
And the list goes on and on, post your things that make us all crazy

LOL - cluck to their cars to help when going uphills, that's funny! I like that one.

I don't have much to add to your already made list. Most of what I tought of, are already posted.

- Cluck at your dogs to continue walking / or cluck at your children
- Practice Dressage Tests on foot, in an imaginary arena in the frontroom
- Eat our horses cookies
- Randomly fart, and say "hey, if my horse can do it, I can too" LOL, I threw that in cause I think that's halarious.

That farting one reminds me of a quote/fact I saw. "What I learned from a horse is that you can fart in public and not give a **** about who's around"

LOL, that's funny.

Whenever I am riding, there is always someone's horse - whether mine or another's - farting. Going over fences, doing grids, doing flat work, trail riding - I always say "Why can't we do that without people laughing?"

lol

I love that qote!!!
