Talking Horse Hair Warning

This is an email I received.

This is a public service announcement!!!

Urgent Notice: Potential Danger of Horse Hair

In a press release today, the National Institute of

Health has announced the discovery of a potentially

dangerous substance in the hair of horses. This

substance, called "amobacter equuii" has been linked

with the following symptoms in females:

* Reluctance to cook, clean or do housework.

* Reluctance to wear make-up, good clothes or heels.

* Reluctance to spend money on home or car repairs

until after "baby has new shoes,pad, blanket, tack,

grain, hay & supplements".

"Amobacter equuii" usually results in long hours away

from home and exhaustion which may lead to a loss of

physical contact with other humans (especially


"Amobacter equuii" is thought to be addictive, driving

the need for additional sources - this may lead to a

"herd mentality" or like the potato chip commercial,

"you can't have just one". (Especially potent if infected

from miniature equines)

Beware! If you come in contact with a female human

infected by this substance, be prepared to talk about

horses for hours.

Surgeon General's Warning: Horses are expensive,

addictive, and may impair the ability to use common


This was in a NATRC newsletter..funny.

soo soo true...

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky
