Agreed. I have a nineteen year-old barrel horse that wins almost every race. His name is Sage he races all over the northwest. Lots of people know him

No, I don't like plaid-- oh, you think that's weird because I am a "farmer", and farmers wear plaid-- well if you looked at my little dirt patch I call a garden, you would think twice

Also:

1. Horses smell good. There is no way around that. If you can't accept that-KEEP IT TO YOURSELF *evil stare*

2. Don't offer a horse a carrot (the wrong way(with a tiny stub sticking outta your hand)) then scream when his tongue tickles you and you think he's eating your fingers.

You know your a horse person when:

1.you don't want to wash your jacket in order to preserve that fantabulous smell.
2. You cannot, will not, and will never pick up dog poo, but enjoy mucking stalls.
3. You'd rather clean up 6 zillion pounds of horse poo than pick up 6 pieces of clothing off your bedroom floor.

Pshh....I don't procrastinate, I just do unimportant things VERY productively!

When I say no loud noises, that includes yelling and shrieking.

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.

What is it that confuses people about mustangs and stallions? Mustang is not a gender, stallion is not a big black horse.
Ma'm, please refrain from flapping your bright orange shiny windbreaker, you're scaring the horses.
Nope, cleaning their hooves doesn't hurt one bit.
Contrary to most leading Hollywood movies involving equines, horses are not trained with love and affection. *cough*warhorse*ahem* Flicka*aaaachoo!* excuse me, bad cold. ;)

Here's one I heard in the tack store the other day in another aisle:

Girl 1 (aka Non-horsey): "Wouldn't you rather spend that $200 on something more useful? Don't you all ready have enough of those leash-thingys?"
Girl 2 (aka Horse person): "This is a halter. Yes, I have several but my horse is growing and needs a bigger one. Sure, I'd like to spend $200 somewhere else, but my horse needs this."


Me: Laughing because Girl 1 called a halter a "leash-thing" and I can't think of anything I'd like to spend $200 on besides a horse. Well... maybe I would fork over that much to get my Macbook's battery replaced.
