Only horse people...

Believe in the 11th commandment: Inside leg to outside rein.

Know that all topical medications come in either indelible blue, neon yellow or hot pink.

Think nothing of eating a sandwich after mucking out stalls.

Know why an equine thermometer has a yard of yarn attached to one end of it.

Are banned from laundromats.

Can magically lower their voice five octaves to bellow at a pawing horse.

Have a language all their own ("If he pops his shoulder, I have to close that hand and keep pushing with my seat in case he sucks back")

Will end relationships over their "hobby".

Cluck to their cars to help them up hills.

Insure their horses for more than their cars.

Will give you 20 names, and reasons, for that bump on your horse.

Know more about their horse's nutrition than their own.

Have neatsfoot oil stains on the carpet next to the TV.

Have a vocabulary that can make a sailor blush.

Have less wardrobe than their horse.

Engage in a hobby that is more work than their day job.


  1. ROTFL!!! Thoses are great and so very true!!!!

  2. It's funny how very true all those are! LOL!!! Good post!!

  3. Love it - thanks for the laugh today!

    So true too!
    They let dog people wash stuff in our laundry mat but not me!

  4. HA HA HA, oh I digress. Truer words have never been spoken. I used to have all kinds of clothes, shoes etc.....Then I bought 2 horses. Now they have more saddle pads, blankets and blingy bridles and breastcollars, splint boots, bell boots than 2 horses need. I haven't bought a darn thing for myself in a LONG time, but boy oh boy do they look cute ;)

  5. Bwahaaha! These were great...and scarily true. :)

    And I'd like to add another:
    "Only Horse People know what it means when a mare is 'winking' at a stallion."

  6. SOOOooooooooo true! Especially the last one...

  7. I copied this and sent it via email to my barn friends.

    I will hear back from them next week - as they are all at that big show right now without me... :(

  8. LMAO- I love it! How true!!! We really are "crazy horse people"!

    I am going to e-mail this off too.

  9. Only horse people will recognize recent acquaintances by the horse's description. -Do you remember that gal who said "hi"? -You know, the one on the chestnut appaloosa? -Oh, sure -what did the gal look like?
