We always joke about the difference between a Texas and Nevada cowboy..

A Texas cowboy will ride a $2000 saddle but drive a $50,000 truck, and a Nevada cowboy will ride a $15,000 saddle, $1000 bit, $400 headstall, $600 set of reins..etc.. and drive a $500 truck that can't even make it to town...tee he he

The other day I saw a half eaten apple on the side of the road and thought what a waste that was when my horses would love it; and I see the county tractors cutting the grass along the highway and think the same thing, but the most recent thing is; I got a new puppy a month ago and when I take her out to go potty she likes to run around looking for the BEST spot to go so I have gotten to the point where when it is snowing and cold and windy I direct her around me in a circle so she can find that perfect spot quicker, it's just like I am lunging her, and it works, lol. We'd be checking out the entire backyard in this Wisconsin winter otherwise!

*When you find yourself clucking at everything (from cars to dogs to family) when they aren't moving fast enough for you.
*When it doesn't matter how many times you wash your jackets, boots, etc., they all smell like horses (and you really, really don't care... you even like it).
*When you find yourself getting claustrophobic and giving the "mare glare" to people who get too close, and then pushing on their side because they're in your bubble.
*You constantly complain about getting up at 7:00 on a weekday but you're up before your alarm at 5:00 for shows or anything else horse-related.
*When you can find anything you need in your tack locker within seconds but your room looks like a tornado hit.
*You fall off your horse and your first thought is not "Ow" or "Am I hurt?" but instead "Where's my horse? Is she okay?"
*People get annoyed because pretty much the only thing you ever post on social media sites relates to horses. But they'll take that any day over the constant conversations about horses in person.

Of course, that's no where near everything, but I figure everyone else has mentioned most of it

RiverBelle ---- Dump the guy now before you get serious with him. The two of you are not compatible. You will be miserable and so will he and it will be a constant tug-o-war until the two of you are pulled apart.

OK, now back to regular programming. I just couldn't let that one go.

srry about the double post but i had to say this

when your in the car and you move back and fourth pretending you riding a horse at the canter

when walk up to a house with a really long driveway and say to your self "that would have been easer on a horse"

when you friends say lets go to the mall and you say nah i'm going to the tack shop and you guys meet up again and you have 2 times as much stuff as them

when your in a store/restaurant there is a horse on a shelf or picture and yell HORSE HORSE!!

If a horse likes it I like it.

I tap the back of my hand on people and click at them and if they don't move I jab my thumb into their said and say 'over' very firmly. My family is used to it and have learned to just move when I tap them, but my friends are being a little more resistant to my training techniques. I also click at my nieces/nephews (all under 4) and say 'lift' when I'm putting their shoes on or tying their shoes.

Show me a horseman who hasn't fallen and I'll show you a man who has never truly ridden.
