a little horse humor

You know you’re a horse person when…
1. You cluck to your car when you go up a hill.
2. Your horse’s hair is in better condition than your own.
3. You refer to your car as “my portable tack room.”
4. You are excited when your friend tells you there is a huge sale at the bridle shop, then you are disappointed when you realize they mean the bridal shop.
5. You have the vet’s number but not your kid’s pediatrician on your speed dial.
6. Your spouse can track dirt into the house all they want, but God help them if they muddy up the tack room.
7. Your house is a mess, but the barn is as neat as a pin.
8. Your nice clothes are the ones without horsehair all over them.
9. You have to go to your friend’s wedding wearing riding clothes because you took too long at the barn.

Murphy’s Horse Laws

  • There is no such thing as a sterile barn cat.
  • No one ever notices how you ride until you fall off.
  • The least useful horse in your barn will eat the most, require shoes every four weeks, and need the vet at least once a month
  • A horse’s misbehavior will be in direct proportion to the number of people who are watching.
  • Your favorite tack always gets chewed on, and your new blanket gets torn.
  • Tack you hate will never wear out, and blankets you hate cannot be destroyed.
  • Horses you hate cannot be sold and will outlive you.
  • Clipper blades will become dull when your horse is half clipped.
  • If you approach within 50 feet of your barn in clean clothes, you will get dirty.
  • The number of horses you own will increase to the number of stalls in your barn.
  • Your barn will fall down without baling twine.
  • Hoof picks always run away from home.
  • If you fall off, you will land on the site of your most recent injury.
  • If you are winning, then quit, because there is only one way to go. Down!
