The jack I now own. I went to pick up a mare from a Friend and she tells me one of her neighbors needs to get rid of their donkey.
So I go look at him and he's in a pasture full of grass. He has those big fat patches on his sides and butt and his neck got so built up he's got kind of a fallen crest.
I was talking to my mom about a place to put him if we get him since apparently he's "aggressive with other horses". (And needed to lose a bunch of weight!
Anyways somehow in the conversation the owner was like "you can't founder a donkey"

I'm like *facepalm

I loaded the donkey and brought him home.
Turns out he's not aggressive at all, just wants to breed everything in sight lol.
And now on a hay only diet.

I don't have ones that are quite as good as previous posts but hey...

I was at a friends house, she lives on the side of a hill and below the house was 3 paddocks with my friends horses in them.. Friend and I were sitting on the window seat and she proceeds to point out the horses to me... The horse I knew as Tonka, a paint mare, clyde x... She proceeded to tell me that was Spitty, and he was a bucking bronc, and she couldn't figure out why they couldn't stay on him...

Fast forward a few weeks where this friend visits my house and tells me how she has ridden horses before, and she has even been dragged!! Wow, thats such an accomplishment, geesh, wish I had been dragged (NOT!).
So, she gets on my mare (22yo schoolmistress) and I tell her to keep at a walk, because she is forward moving... 2 seconds later... TWO SECONDS, she has my mare at a canter in a straight line... That's fine, till the horse decided to turn the corner so she wouldn't hit the fence, seeing as the flopping sack of potatoes on her back wouldn't steer and no way in hell could it survive jumping a fence... Off comes friend, into the dirt as I'm stifling a laugh and have to get on my own horse to calm the poor girl down, she thought she was gonna get a hiding!

I'm sure there's more where that come from but not that I can think of right now

I have one! I'll try to make this short.
Theres this chick in my class thats always been considerd the "poser" ima call her susan. she changes with every boyfreind. when we were freshmen she was "scene" or "sean" whatever that is, ok thats fine, then she starts talking about getting a horse... ok! thats awsome, a new trail buddy! not so much... she left her horse on a guys property(not a boarding facility), she payed for everything, but he got tired of doing all the work so he burned his barn down and told her to take her horse. She had that gelding and a few others for awhile but sold them. A couple months ago she got a another horse. My friend (kayla) doesn't own the land where her horses are, but the land owner has nuthing to do with the horses -kayla does everything. the land owner told this "equestrainian", <-- ((remember that)) susan, she could keep her horse there too. she does nuthing! so once agian kaylas stuck caring for and FEEDING another horse, (same thing happened last winter with another girl, which is why kayla moved to this new place) the land owner is getting fed up with never seeing susan out there too.
So we are in english class and shes reading her paper, our senior reports, outloud to our group so we can hear mistakes. Its a mission statement, all about ourselves. she says " I am an 'equestrainian', i have a passion for horses, blah blah blah..." when she finishes i ask what in the world an equestrainian is she said its what a horse person is called and said " If your so into horses you should know what that is" in her smartass way. i just laughed it off and let her look like the dumbass she is.
that wouldn't be such a stupid mistake if she actually took care of her horse and did all the things she claims! the few times she did ride with us she acted like she knew everything, when really she knows nothing. Watching her put a bridle on is hillairious. SORRY that was more of a rant. am I the only one that finds that funny?

My non-horsey boyfriend cracks me up. I guess I need to give him props for trying, but sometimes I wonder about him.

Perfect example was our conversation last night. I had taken him with me to our new boarding barn so I could pay my board and pull Aires in from turnout. The whole time, he was going on and on about how big Aires has gotten. So, later that evening, we were sitting there watching TV and I was on HF on my phone. Somehow the topic of Aires came up and my adorable boyfriend goes "He's got hair like a clydesdale!" I was like "Ummmm...what?" He says "Yeah! He's totally got as much hair as a clydesdale in his legs!" I guess I should be glad that my boyfriend knows what a clydesdale is, but Aires has nowhere near as much feathering as a clydesdale. Heck, he doesn't even really have as much feathering as a full percheron.

I don't know. It just struck me as incredibly funny.

My boyfriend asked about the fly mask, too. He couldn't wrap his head around the concept that Aires could indeed see out of it just fine...until I made him wear it. Then he got it. Lol
