When People criticize you for spending more time with your horse than humans.

When people criticize you for spending more time with your horse than humans- I'm sorry, would you like me to feed you, brush you, pick your feet, braid your hair, put a halter on your head, lead you around, put a saddle on you, and ride you?

hmmm...well lets see...they are usually happy to see you, they don't criticize you, they don't talk back and accept you for who you are and generally want to please. I enjoy being around my horses....some people...not so much. Sounds like good friends to me!

I usually tell people that if they want to spend time with me they can come out to the barn! People are overrated, horses are where it's at!

Yeah...I spend all of my time reading and writing about horses..Sometimes people say, "You spend more time with your horse books than you do people or your school."
My reply is always, "Horses are more interesting...sorry..."

My husband is a Nurse Practitioner and he always jokes with the vets that one of these days he'll bring one of my horses in with an IV already established, or he would if I would let him. My response is, "My horses are worth more than most people, emotionally AND financially. You can sew up people and do IVs and all kinds of medical stuff on them but you aren't a vet and you don't get to mess with my horses.".

Ditto. My husband is completely jealous of my horse because apparently I care for it more.

Wanna start a good fight in my house? When the "you love your horse more than me" whine starts, say something smartypants like,

Well, yesterday, I washed his the poop from his butt cheeks, would you like me to do the same for you? Bend over.

Ladies, we are their security blanket and when we're with the horse, the men don't feel emotionally strong. Here's a great comeback. Ask hubby if he'd rather you spent your time in the bar or the barn?

Maybe people should try to suck less. I tell people that too, which leaves me more time for the horses...
