You know you're an equestrian when...

Recommended Posts

When one of your hair brushes has become a mane and tail brush for your horse!

When family comes to town, you still have to be forced out of the barn!

When someone tells you, you smell like the barn, you take it as a compliment!

you are an equestrian when your barn is cleaner and more organized than your house. When your horses get the bag of carrots and not your family! When your lawn gets mowed by a horse and not the lawn mower then you are an equestrian!

My husband complains because although the barn is spotless, my house is filthy.

My saddles and blankets are cleaned constantly, but do I have clean clothes to wear to work tomorrow? Of course not.

You know your an equestrian when you can always find a spare halter, bridle, pair of wranglers, boots AND spurs on the floorboard of your truck. My husband often stares at me in amazement when I can produce an entire outfit out of just whats buried in my truck, but I cant seem to keep any clothes in the dressers. Oh well, so much left for him to learn...

When you won't waste money on permanents,

facials, or manicures. That's for your horses farrier bill. (Very guilty)

complains about the

sticky-sweet cigar smoke of others while

remaining totally oblivious to

the almost visible aroma of her barn boots drying

next to the heater. (very Guilty)

Eliminates grass

cutting by turning every

square inch of lawn into pasture which, in turn,

converts itself into

mud.

can find all she wears at the

local tack store. (that's scary) [Question]

Can rattle on

endlessly about training or

breeding. (guilty)

Easy to please A new wheelbarrow, custom boots,

or even a folding hoof

pick will win their heart forever. (guilty)

Displays a minimum of six 8x10

color photos of the

horse in the house and carries a crumpled

snapshot of you (taken

beforeyou were married) somewhere in the bottom

of her purse. (my mothers guilty of that)

when you can't remember the last day you spent AWAY from the barn

you love the smell of the barn

you carry bailing twine or the hay scissors home in your pockets (i do that all the time)

you are constantly brainstorming about ways to save up money to buy horsey things
