    You've got riding routines planed for your for your favorite songs
    You can justify spending 160 on a new saddle pad but not 40 on a new pair of shoes.
    Duct tape is a staple and is used for everything from holding together holey boots, holding soaked pads on abscessed hooves, and fixing broken halters.
    People taking care of your horse hate when you go on vacation because you call them at least four times a day to make sure your horse isn't dead.

    When you weigh every purchase against how many round bales it equals
    Haha I was also going to say something similar to this. Pretty sure my horse, heck, my tack, is worth more than my POS car.

    When you ask your boyfriend for a new manure fork for your anniversary... and he complies.

    My boyfriend has never been around horses, and I was finally able to get him up on my mare for about 15 minutes before she decided to start eating and not listen to him. LOL. He hopped off and said he would never ride again. But we were watching the movie BraveHeart, and there is a scene where the guy and girl are riding off into the green pasture and he's like, "you wanna do that some time?" And I said "So... you wanna learn how to ride?" He said, "Sure, why not."

    I haven't stopped planning for his first lesson, and I can't stop talking about teaching him, and how fun it will be to ride on the trails this summer together.

    You know you're a horse person when you would rather have a date be going out for a 4 hour trail ride then a diner at a nice, fancy restaurant. :)

    When you lay awake at night, planning out the optimal arrangement for the 3 pastures.

    When you spend a few hours fixing fences by yourself because it gives you something to do near the horses.

    When you stay awake at night trying to think of ways to help your horse "shed out" her winter coat and get frustrated because you have to wait until after work to go out to the barn and try it. (I'm going to try the Furminator I have for our husky. LOL).

    When you find yourself washing your Marie's backside because she's had a heavy heat cycle...and it doesn't really occur to you that most people would be grossed out.

    When you haven't bought a new bra in 3 years (even though yours are just about worn out), but you purchase new halters / bridles at the first sign of wear because you don't want anything to break or be uncomfortable for the horse.

    When even though you are dead on your feet after a long day at work, you head out to the barn with your 10 year old daughter so she can get her "horsework" done...and you love every minute of it.

    Horses are my therapy. :)

    When you click at your brother to tell him to hurry up and then later realize what you did. Totally guilty of that.

    When you reach into your coat pocket and pull out a hoof pick and two horse treats.
    When you find hay all over your room - even after vacuuming several times.
    When people glare at you for sticking your thumb in their side and saying "over." - my friends don't like my habit!!
    When you go to your dances in boots and cowboy hat instead of ribbons/headbands and heels.
    When you can't ever keep your boots clean for more than five minutes. -not including if you go to bed after cleaning them!! Lol

    Go to hug your spouse with your work gloves on and he (or she) says, "You picked up a piece of horse poo with those, didn't you!?"
