You know you're a horse woman/man when..

This kinda feeds off of the "You Know you're a BA equestrian when.." thread but this is different! Tell me about those times you have in life where you think.."Only a horse person would understand!"
I'll start:) This morning, I grabbed a coat before heading out the door and after I arrived at school and headed into the building, I shoved my hands in my pockets in realized I had an empty tube of dewormer in my pocket! Oopsies:) I prayed it wouldn't accidently fall out for the rest of the day!

My winter coat carries a knife and a hoof pick all the time!

You know all the different uses for a hoof pick, (hammer, screwdriver, nail puller, paint scraper, back scratcher,)

You see peoples different attitudes and translate it into horse body language so you can understand it.

When you drum your fingers on a table, you practice different 'gaits' (walk, trot, canter, gallop)

When you see a horse, or a picture of a horse, you have to guess the breed, correct color, height, gender, etc.

You hear the name of a horse breed and you can recite all the statistics of that breed.

Horse sweat and leather smell heavenly, Axe makes you gag.

That's all for now, I'm sure I could think up more. LOL!

When you cluck at your dog and tell her to walk on when you're going out for a walk :/ I sadly do this quite often.

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

You can just look at a horse and:

Tell it's not well.....
Make it RUN away from you......
Or make it come to you......

You reach into any of your coat pockets and find hay.
