Cousin: wow, nice place.
Me: yep, I love it here. Riding almost every day...
Cousin: what, you ride one of THOSE horses? (pointing at Luca and Fleet)
Me: yes, both of them.
Cousin: are they both yours.
Me: no, only Luca is mine. The other is my sister's lease horse.
Cousin: oh, so you own that brown one? He looks like he suits you. (Fleet is a chestnut)
Me: no, that's my sister's lease horse, Fleet.
Cousin: omg so you ride the BLACK BIG ONE?????
Me: um....(Luca is actually BROWN, not black, and it's actually quite visible, lighter parts under the armpits, around the muzzle)...yes...
Cousin: but he's like wayyy too tall for you!!
Me: 0.o I'm still growing you know so he's actually the perfect size for me (he's 16hh and we two actually suit each other very well.)
Cousin: ohhh...okay. So you live on a real farm eh?
Me: yeah...I guess.
Cousin: and you have your own black stallion...so you're a real cowgirl! Yeehaaaw!
Me: actually...he's a gelding. And I ride English....
Cousin: oh...is that a breed?
Me: gelding? No....he's a Standardbred.
Cousin: what kind? Like a racehorse?
Me: well.....he used to be one..
Cousin: cool! So you enter him in races and stuff like that?
Me: uhm....no......excuse me, I need to check something with Luca...
So I went to Luca so I could laugh my head off in peace....
This actually happened and I remember so much of it because it happened yesterday and my dad was filming my sister train her goat to jump little obstacles and my cousin and I were watching, having that conversation. So it's all on tape, too!
