When you would rather clean stalls than your own room.

When you spend more money on tack and show clothes than anything else.

When you make sure to pack a horse friendly lunch so you can share it with them. :)

When all of your coats, jackets and jeans have treats in the pockets. lol

When you have more pairs of muddy boots than high heels or dress shoes.

When your only wall decorations are horseshoes and show ribbons.

When your horse and dog have matching blankets.

When you hear someone talking about their kid or their dog and you think your horse is sooo much better!

When you don't stop and smell the roses, you run right to the barn to smell the horse aroma.

When you yourself give "mare glares" among other horse expressions.

When your boyfriend does the laundry and doesn't check your pockets and you find washed treats in there.

When you have peed in your or your worst enemy's stall.

When you randomly play with your hair and find a piece of hay.

When you always some how manage to radiate horse people toward you no matter where the heck you are.

When you try something new to eat and say to yourself "I wonder if my horse could/would eat this".

When you've ever wondered if you could turn old blankets into Christmas tree skirts.

When you make sure every last nail is in place before a storm on the run in but forget to bring your laundry in that had been drying on the line.

You've ever been "trapped" in a tack shop because of a tornado/severe thunderstorm warning.

And drove all through gods green earth to warn best friend out riding because of said warnings to watch them gallop home.

When you ride 7 miles to Mc Donalds in scattered rain showers to go through the drive through just say you did it.

(I'm sure I'll come up with some later. )

when your sole purpose for doing leg work outs is to hold a two point and half seat better/longer
You cant bring yourself to do homework but find excuses like "my saddle needs oiled, well while I' at it I should clean his boots.. and bridle"
every horse you drive by in a field you pick out conformational pluses/minuses, and imagine how riding them would be
Driving through amish country is one of the most hazardous things EVER because there are soooooooooo many horses to gawk at
Your heart skips a beat because a horse appears for 5 seconds in a commercial

:) These are so awesome everyone!

When your wife is mad at you and tells you to go sleep in the barn ....... and she thinks its punishment.

I may not be good, but I am slow!

When you get excited your colt has finally dropped, after handling his junk almost every day the past few months.

When you walk through a gate with your brother and almost glare at him and tell him to back up when he crowds you.

When your horse gets acupuncture and a massage while you can barely even see a doctor.

When every single person at the vet clinic knows you and your horse by name.

When you spend hours brushing/currying/treating your horse's hair while you can't even pick a comb through your own.

When someone says they like a certain food and you blurt out, "Oh, so does my horse!"

When you buy a watermelon and are more excited to give the rinds to your horse than you actually eating it.

There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh

When you walk into a public restroom and can immediately call out another horse owner because you can smell the lingering scent of Absorbine Jr on them..

I threaten hubby by telling him i'm moving to the barn.
My living room consists of more pieces of tack and grooming supplies rather than furniture and decorative things.
When husband is driving really fast on a down hill, and you lean back as if on the horse.
When he takes corners, i lean into them as if barrel racing, or weaving a pattern.
When your horse has a vendetta against your car because its in her tie spot.
Your more concerned about your fence than the roof on the shed or house.
You trudge through snow drifts just to make sure your herd is ok for the day, but refuse to clean the house.
I never see a doctor, but the vet is here regularly.
My truck needs repairs, but the horses need their hooves trimmed first.
When your facial expressions begin resembling a horses, and your husband is taking note of this, and recognizing every single one, and knows when to back away.
When a friend or family member gets a new horse and they want you to see and tell them what you think, you a) make it move away from you, b) make it yield various parts of body, c) make it come back to you, d) it follows you upon own choice, then you e) tell them what you think of said equine, and what it would most likely excel at, with its qualities/faults, and how much you like it yourself.

You count the strides between telephone poles when in a vehicle... LOL

(when I was in grade 8) .... you have your teacher yell at you for being late every day because your horse keeps escaping, then other kids in your class say you stink like a horse and have hay all in your hair !!!

Your barn is cleaner then your house!
