I realized I was still holding my dressage whip. I talk and direct with my hands a lot so I must have been waving my whip around like a mad-woman.

ROFL! LOL! Hehehehe.. I would've been so tempted to make a 50 Shades of Gray comment, just to see the looks on their faces. Hahaha.


I remember going to my dad's house. It's Thanksgiving, the whole family is there. He tells everyone, "Going out to feed the cows!" He gets on his John Deere, heads out with a large round bail. Typical day at the ranch. No big deal. But when he gets back none of us can recognize one inch of him. He's covered, front and back, head to toe, in shyte! Every single inch of him, covered in poo! All of us, same time, "Dad, what happened?" He's still flinging the poo off him, trying to get cleaned up enough to enter the house, standing in the door frame, "That DB (a horse he inherited who's name is Dumb B****h) decided she was gonna get pushy with the bull in order to get to my truck and they both knocked me out of the bed of the truck and into the creek!" Thankfully, no one was hurt, beside a bit of wounded pride. But the looks on the neighbor's faces when they walked up behind him- priceless.

I used to live in suburban-heading-for-urban NE Philadelphia. I would drive 90 minutes to get to trails to train the horse I was riding. These trails had no facilities, so I would go dressed in my (often brightly colored) riding tights. I often stopped at a particular Walmart on my way home.. still wearing my riding tights. People gave me all sorts of weird looks.. esp if I was also dirty and covered in fresh scratches (sticker bushes along the trail). I always wondered if I was featured on a "people of walmart" site somewhere!

When my sister and I were in college, we used to ride miles and miles of trails together. We rode in blue jeans, tee-shirts, boots, and ball caps. It was not unusual for us to tuck our long hair into the ball caps.

We were on our way home from the barn when we stopped at the grocery store to pick up a few items. A woman came up to us and asked, "Are you girls or boys?" We told her that we were girls, and she went into a tirade about how it was improper for young ladies to go around dressed like boys. That was almost 40 years ago. That poor old woman probably died of a heart attack by now with all the new styles kids wear.

She really did. What a jerk. It kinda took us by surprise to start with, then we decided that she was a stuffy dork with no life, so we laughed it off.

I was unfortunate enough to get caught cleaning my stallions penis by the old man that lives along the road, helooked at me disgust, and asked why I was sponging down there, I told him he can't do it himself and it needs done, it's normal?!! lol, he must have went home and told his old wife as the next time I saw her she also looked at me in disgust, outsiders to the horse world have no idea!

The UPS man caught me doing the assembly lines health cleaning. This one gelding LOVED his cleaning and would drop and slap 'it' against his belly. Well, I didn't realize I was being observed as I handled this gelding with two hands scrubbing and a rubbing and he is a slapping and I am trying to get the bean out. It probably did look......well any way, I look up and there he is standing. He didn't even want me to touch the pen to sign! Wuss....lololol.

I did notice the UPS man had a reaction to the action though.

Go figure.

Okay if anything weird ever happens on my farm, I'm gonna be sure to load the kids up in the truck and go to my husbands work (Wal-Mart) to say howdy, take him out to lunch. Just to see the reactions on people's faces! LOL!

We were fixing fence this morning, and couldn't figure out what was shorting out the electric. Three hours later, we got it working , I then raise my hands in the air exclaiming "Praise Jesus, now I can eat breakfast." Loaded up the dogs and went to Dunkin D's. I'm sure the lady at the drive through wonders if I ever shower, since I'm always dirty and sweaty with no make up on and hair stuffed under a baseball cap.

I've gotten a few slow-down-then-drive-away-very-fast incidents when I ride with my gun on my hip. :) I can imagine the conversations inside that car. "Why does that old woman have a gun?"

The local gas station, grocery, Lowe's, and TSC are used to me showing up with my filthy, frayed jeans tucked into my mud-boots (rainbow/zebra striped) and a dirty tank top to get something I need. I always wonder what the 'normal' people think.

Or the people in the car behind me as I ride through the drive through at Sonic or Burger King.
