Stupid things people say - we want to know

Do some of your non horsey friends say things about your horse or horsey life that make you do a double take, not quite believing they've actually been stupid enough to say this stuff? If so, I want to hear them please. This is for a new section in the magazine. Email me now with all those absurd comments and it could end up in print!

Thanks

Julie

'well, its black and white...black and white cows are dairy cows... dairy horse!'

Horses are like chocolates; you can't just have the one!

We were parked once in a public park preparing for a competition, when a little girl came past with her dad and said (about our gorgeous 17hh+ grey Trakehner mare) "Daddy look at that donkey!". Well I know she's got generous-sized ears and is grey but really.....As you can see from the photo, she's rather gorgeous and no donkey!!!!!

Re: Stupid things people say - we want to know

This year my Mum has very generously offered to buy Sir Poncelot a rug to keep him warm.

Bare in mind my mum has seen me through all my horse mad child hood, teenage and adult years and should actually know better.

She is insisting I wrap it up and 'He can't have it till Christmas Day', so I've had to go and buy another one to keep him warm(he only came with lightweights) until I am 'allowed' to unwrap it on Christmas day!!

She is here for Christmas so I can't get away with pretending!

Re: Stupid things people say - we want to know

We had a new person arrive on our yard who has owned her horse for just over a year.  She rode horses as a child, but it was a lifetime ambition to own her own and now in her later life she has achieved it - fantastic for her!

She was in the yard one day getting on to her horse and it struck me that she was mounting on from the right hand side.  I asked if there was any specific reason for getting on this side, thinking that there may be a medical problem or something and that was why she got on that side.  She said that the reason was that it was closer to the step!  I had to contain my laughter and just merely stated that it was odd to me as traditionally you mount on the left hand side and if you turn the steps to face the other way the left side would be closer to the steps too and she would be facing the right way to leave the yard!
