This ended up being a long coversation about horse colors that I still don't think my mom understands. I also bought Dora back (she was originally given to me in 1998, owned her for 5 years) nearly 5 years ago. My mom has been around her numerous times, we've had discussions about her...at this particular moment she thought she was a new horse that I had just bought and I gave her the same name as the previous Dora. I'm telling you, by the time we were done talking my head hurt and I was finding it hard to answer questions without sounding like a smartass.
Geez......sounds like my mom......

My boyfriend is in love with my gelding and treats him like an oversized puppy sometimes. Best example is I stopped by his shop the other day and my bf was thrilled because he had a new 'shop dog'. I had moved the horses to the corral behind his shop which has a door that opens into the corral. Hr had opened the door and let my gelding come in and hang out with him why he worked on his truck with him,his friend, the dog, and the cat. I explained to him it wasn't safe to have a horse in the shop with all his tools and trucks and to please not it again! He was disappoint but agreed that a 1200 pound horse doesn't belong in a shop!!!!

I wish I had gotten some pics! It would have been cute, but I showed up after they had already put him back in the corral so I didn't get to see it. This is the only horse that my BF has ever really liked so I hated to burst his bubble, but can just imagine how badly that could turn out.

Definitely could have been disastrous but I can't but help but wonder how that looked :) Sounds like something my hubby would do too. We boarded a big draft who liked to hang out outside the shop but never in. He preferred the 5 dogs and 4 cat to his pasture mates.

Knowing my bf, I'm sure he'll do something silly like that again soon! He used to think horses were dumb, but these 2 are so cute together he's always doing silly stuff with his 1200 pound shop horse. He calls me at work to let me know what goofy thing he's doing right now...just normal horsey stuff I don't think twice about, but he's never seen lol.

Our horses are right by the road and our horses have an established nap time at 10am. We get a lot of concerned citizens who stop by the business out front to tell us about the dead/sick horse at pasture. We rush out because we really don't need a sick horse. Walk up to them, wake the horse up and usually have to make them get up. We have had older horses that get cold and then we have to help them up. We did have one mare scratch herself on a rather small stick. People rushed in "the horse out there impaled itself on a tree". We run out and see the old mare head up, nose in the air, body swaying as she scratched her chest on this stick.

I used to work in a lesson barn that also had a breeding program, and once I had to excort a romantic couple out of a paddock where they had trespassed to have a picnic accompanied by the "pretty, black horse". The horse in question was a breeding stud, turned out alone for a reason...

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

I was walking a friends horse down the road and her neighbor comes up (With his loose dog) and starts getting in the horses face. I ask him to get a hold of his dog, which was all over the mare, and to get out of the horses face. The guy goes on to tell me that hes a horse whisperer and all you have to do to control a horse is whisper in their ear.. He then gets out an apple and tells me to feed it to the mare later, but not whole, shell eat the whole thing and choke on it.
He then asked me if we had ridden her yet, and since shes a OTTB she will be fast and will take off with me... Dude, theres a reason she only ran 2 races and is quieter than my pleasure horse..
