Your non-horse savvy family knows that horse poop doesn't stick to your shoes and are no longer afraid to walk through it after you've demonstrated a thousand times in fresh poop.

You're in the grocery store and no longer care about the looks you get for buying only metamucil, vegetable oil, and apple cider vinegar.

You bring your horse to family functions because he's family too.

You've had your boyfriend/girlfriend try your horse's grain because you've tried it and it's not terrible.

People know sitting in your back seat or putting anything in the trunk means they'll be removing hay for weeks.

On the phone with the vet saying 'so I just pat him on the butt and stick it in fast' no longer embarrasses your friends, and said friends explain to others you're talking about horse stuff.

The coffee shop has your horse's coffee and pastry order memorized and knows when you order it based on how you're dressed.

It's no longer embarrassing to be caught elbow deep in sheath and instead of calling a vet people ask you to clean their horse's as well.

You work nights so you don't waste good riding time working during the day.

No one asks what you want for holidays, they just get things for your horse.

When you go to CVS and buy a pregnancy test (cause someone told you it might work for that new mare you're not sure if she's pregnant or not)... Desitin, diaper rash lotion for the melanomas on your gray stallion's bum and your draft horse's scratches, Diapers for padding sore feet and baby oil to make them shine . Not realizing until you get to the counter how terrible awkward it all looks!

LOL, I will buy baby wipes from the store and like the only thing I bought that day. Lady was like aww how old your baby? Boy or girl? I'm like there girls but I use the wipes to clean my mares privates/teats(good for hand wipes and other stuff too) cause she can't reach herself. Lady gave a weird look and said "ooookkkk that's different" Hay it's part of proper horse care for their health!

When every time you walk into your local TSC, the stock clerk says, "There she is"! *We do have a small population here though :)

LOL! My ring tone is bawling cows....

I will add one-

DirecTV shuts off your service for non-payment but you don't care because you used the money to buy a's not like I watch the thing anyways!

When you have a perfect cross country course in you head from your house to the barn. There are some pretty jumpable fences and bushes on those roads!

When you consider wearing riding pants to school because they're more comfortable than normal pants.

When flexion is a vocab word in english class and your friends look at you because you were just explaining dressage to people who really didn't care to begin with.

When the teacher says "before the invention of the stirrup, no one could ride fast" and you have to politely tell him that he's wrong becasue just yesterday you went on a bareback gallop.

When your pre-vet large animal teacher just has you answer the questions about horse management

When your non- horsey family asks you to please not talk at dinner because you only talk about horses.

When your 3rd grade teacher said (about how I only read horse books) "I think she will eventually grow out of this and soon she will just care about boys."- 7 years later and she's still wrong...

OH! I'm learning to drive and I don't like to turn at faster than 10mph because the car doesn't bend like a horse or rock back on it's haunches and I feel unbalanced.

I also remeber which way to move to lever for the turn signal because it's like turning a horse- for right it goes up, like and outside rein and left it goes down like and inside rein. I tried to explain these things to my dad (non- horsey) and he said I need help :p

When you zone out of class and zone back in when the teacher starts saying something about how they measure horse's height in hands, then recite all the facts you know about hands to your friends who don't really want to know that much about how a hand is one unit of measure for a horse's height.

Or when you point out the absolutely perfect cross country jumps along the road on your way to school.
