You know you love/ride/own horses when...

This is totally me down to the dot

1. Almost every afternoon is spent at the barn
2. All your walls include pictures/ribbons involving horses
3. No matter what u do your clothes always have traces of horse hair in them
4. Your friends get jealous cause you talk more to your horse than them
5. Your hairstyle always includes hay
6. You spend more money on horse shoes than on your own
7.When you take a (human) temp you think 100.2F is normal and get freaked out when it is lower
8. You get annoyed when non-horsey people say horse riding is easy or not a sport
9. Your horse gets all the nice, new clothes eg:blankets
10. When u go on your vacation your horse goes to.end of story
11. You'd rather muck out a stall than clean your own room
12. You know who Beezie Maden and Michael Matz are
13. Your thighs and calves stop fitting into your jeans
14. You wear horsey clothes in non-horsey places and get weird looks
15. You know there is no kind of pain like breaking in new tall boots
16. Ponies are NOT baby horses and you get annoyed when people ask how much longer until that horse is an adult...He's 23 he's not getting much bigger...Idiot
17. It's not uncoomon to whack your friend on the back of the head with a crop
18. Clucking has nothing to do with chickens
19. You can get up at 4:30 to go to the barn but you would never get up at 6 to do hair and makeup
20. If someone asks you if you notice the smell at the barn you say what smell?
21. You can shop for hours for your horse but hate going to the mall
22. A new delivery of hay or shavings make you jump for joy
23. Your bedroom is trashed but your cubby/locker at the barn is spotless
24. It is okay to spend $500 for your horse but suddenly you cringe at a $5 meal
25. One of the first things in your profile is I love horses or something to that effect
26. Instead of skipping you canter
27. You can't draw anything at all except for a horse
28. you try to explain things that happened to you at the barn yesterday to your friends but they don't understand
29. You spend hours grooming your horse but won't spend 2 minutes in front of the mirror
30. One stubbed toe will keep you out of gym class but you will still ride with a briken leg
31. The only pictures you have of yourself are on a horse
32. Some of the spanish barn workers have offered to teach you spanish because you r there so much
33. You write a paper for school but end up having to re-write most of it and take out all the horsey terms and put in terms your teacher and classmates will understand
34. The concepts of sleeping in on the weekends has long since faded from your mind
35. Instead of counting sheep at night you count horses
36. You love to hear the noise of shod hooves on concrete
37. You stamp your foot and kick out backwards when something makes you angry
38. You wish you could lay back an ear to get someone to back off
39. Eventually when you laugh it begins to sound like a horse whinnying
40. You hate to shovel snow off the driveway but mucking out a stable is no problem
41. You tag your horse in your facebook photos
42. You don't get grossed out when you share an apple with your horse
43. You cut class to go stand with your horse while he is being shod
44. Putting on polo wraps is a breeze but changing a tire escapes you
45. You learn Geography by which breeds come from which country.
46. The day you are short on time your horse decides to play a game of tag in the field...And it reminds of how much you utterly love your horse.
47. You know the pain of buying blankets when you know your horse is just going to shred them in the field!

If you climb in the saddle, be ready for the ride.

HAHAHA... most of this list is me!!!! I read them to my BF and he was like YA!!!

I have pictures of my horses everywhere in the house and can stare at them for hours deciding what I should have done differently (for grooming, my sitting position, etc...) and the mall??? I HATE IT. I also skipped class a lot because I needed a "horse day"... lol

It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.

Ahhhhhhh, number 16 just makes me to to scream! No, my pony is NOT getting bigger. No, he is not a baby. Yes, he IS full grown.

Sorry, I've gotten that one a lot, it makes me a teensy bit annoyed, lol
