National Health alert! Danger to women from contact with horse hair!
Urgent Notice: Potential Danger of Horse Hair... Posted: 28 Aug 2009 04:53 PM PDT
This is a public service announcement. ..

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 husbands).

"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".

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 sense.

I think I have that...?

I know I have that. I will go without food just so I can get a new piece of tack or buy a bale of hay. LOL. Nice to know that I'm not just crazy. LOL.

That's awesome.

Thanks, one of my fellow "sickies" sent it to me. As soon as I read it I thought "this explains EVERYTHING!" I'm "sick" and the only cure is more horses. :-) LOL I should show this to my boyfriend by way of explaining some of my behavior. :-)
