So guilty of the hay thing.
When people ask you how you can stand the smell and you say "what smell?".
When your horses get more of your love then your own siblings
When you see a golf course and think to your self how much your horses would love it.
When you watch a movie and see a horse in it, you try to guess the breed, gender and hight.
adding on to that you can't help picking out all the riding mistakes.

I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.

Hubby was backing me up to our gooseneck one time and when it was time for me to stop he said whoa......

when you are riding on a bumpy bus and you start posting with the bumps :)

when you watch a horse movie and you just want to go ride

when you hear the sound of thundering hooves and your heart just races and you get really excited

when you pick out the errors in horse movies (leading on the wrong side, mounting on the wrong side, tacking up wrong etc)

when you are in the barn and realize that the bottom of your boot has mud, horse poop, etc in it and you use a hoof pick to clean it out (i have done this before )

You may be out of my sight, but never out of my mind. ~RIP Angel

And when you go to the with a dirty behind from riding bareback... Non-horse people are probably like, What did she get into???

**I must not forget to thank the difficult horses, who made my life miserable, but who were better teachers than the well-behaved school horses who raised no problems.**

when your tack room is immaculate with a shelf or rack for everything and it smells like cleaners and glycerine soap, but your house looks sad and neglected :(

when your horses coat shines and smells great, but you smell like poo and mtg.

when your boyfriend has learned the mare glare is the best way to show you hes grumpy (true story, alex's is as good as Annies these days)

I love these. Only horse people will get these. Here's my addition:

The night of the superbowl, I was with about 20 guys/teenage boys when that clydesdale commercial came on. I got a big lump in my throat, and my eyes watered up at the end, and a bunchof the guys started giving me a bunch of crap about it. But it was okay..... it's a horse thing, they wouldn't have understood. I had been gone for about 10 days only a few weeks before, and when I came home I went to see how my Sonny was. (He's a 13 yo, turns 14 tomorrow, thoroughbred) When he saw me I got one of those low nickers, and he trotted over to the gate to wait for me. Before I couild get the gate open, he put his nose right up in my face, and we had to exchange breath, another low nicker, and then I went into the pasture and we walked around for awhile. It just doesn't get any better than that.

My horse coliced and I was out there for 3 or 4 hours walking her and trying to relax her until the vet got here, and then holding her for the tubing and walking her around some more. The next day I went out there to see how she was doing and as soon as she saw me she stopped eating and walked right up to me with a low nicker and gave me her head to scratch her favorite spot. My heart melted!!!

On your way to get a horse from the pasture, you walk towards manure piles to kick them and break them up..

When you and your son watch deer crossed the road and comment on the quality of the canter.
