You know you're a horse lover when...

I saw something like this on facebook and it was hilarious! You know you're a horse lover when...
Your truck is hidden under a layer of dirt and horse hair.
A "shopping spree" is buying a new bridle and saddle pad.
You always manage to find hay in your hair.
Anyone want to add on?

You Know You're A Horse Person When...
...your horse gets new shoes more often than you do.
…your mouth waters at the sight of a truck full of hay.
...every time you drive past a road construction sight you think what nice jumps the barricades would make. consider a golf course as a waste of good pasture
...your friends no longer ask to get together after work or on a weekend because they know you'll say, "I can't, I have to ride." pull a $17,000 horse trailer with a $1,000 pick-up truck. buy duct tape by the case, and carry rolls in your pocketbook, briefcase, backpack, and car trunk. realize finding a horse shoe is truly lucky because you've saved ten bucks.
...your boyfriend complains that you love your horse more than you love him and you say: "And your point is..?"
...someone does something nice for you and you pat them on the neck and say 'good boy'. try to get by someone is a restricted space and instead of saying "excuse me" to him/her, you cluck at them instead. show up for an appointment in your city clothes and when you get there people reach across the table to pick alfalfa out of your hair. one wants to ride in your car because they'll get sweet feed and hay in their socks and on their clothes...but that's ok because you'll have to rearrange all the tack to make room for them anyway! look at all the piles of laundry sitting next to your washing machine and most of them are breeches, horse blankets, saddle pads, etc.... but you don't even care about the horsey hair residue that will be left in your washer and dryer. say "whoa" to the dog.
...your mother, who has no grandchildren, gets cards addressed to Grandma, signed by the horses and dogs. see the vet more than your child's pediatrician. groom your horse daily for hours and you haven't seen a beautician since...?
...someone asks for a screwdriver and you hand them a hoof pick. clean tack after every ride but you never, ever, wash the truck.
...on rainy days, you organize the tack room, not the house. can remember worming schedules, lessons, and farrier visits in your head, but often forget your class schedule, household chores, and meals. are unreasonably pleased to get a horse item, ANY horse item, as a gift. stop channel surfing at Budweiser Clydesdale commercials.
...books and movies are ruined for you if horsemanship references aren't correct. actually get to a point where flies don't bother you that much anymore.

... when you like the smell of horse manure.
Or wish they made an air freshener that smells like horses.

Ok I won't go that far, although manure smell doesn't disgust me, I don't want to spray it around the joint. Smell of leather, yes, that I would spray, but I don't have to, I have a custom tackroom downstairs, the odor permiates, I love it! Right now I am at work in a business suit, I took 3 horse blankets to housekeeping to wash and they are hanging in my office to dry until the blanket repair guy stops by to pick up them to fix them. Smells like horse everywhere here, lol. I really should head back to housekeeping to wipe out the industrial washer, might've left some hairs in there.

Hahah I love the road barricades as jumps because I always invision jumping them in my xc course hehe. I do tend to look at hay on the back of trucks, but I mostly look at the truck "boy would that pull a trailer nice!" ;) lol

...You're driving your vehicle around a curve and have the sudden urge to bump your inside leg to get a bend around the turn.

This has, sadly, happened to me.
