Funny non-horsey quote's competition

We've been chatting in the office today about funny things our non-horsey friends and partners have said to us in the past...

What's the best you've heard? We've got two small goodies up for grabs for the best two quotes*!

 

*We'll be picking winners tomorrow (23rd May) just after 10am

Funny non-horsey quote's competition

In the office at work years ago I said to a colleague that at lunchtime I needed to go an buy some brushing boots - a few mintues later she said "Can horses wear boots to brush themselves with?"  

There is no greater gift than to share time with a creature of such beauty - The Horse.

 I went into the bit section of a tack shop with my non horsey friend who went "what are all these handcuffs for?"

Re: Funny non-horsey quote's competition

A friend told me how much he had spent on himself in topshop on some nice jeans and a leather jacket, around £300 in total, so I replied "oh i wouldn't spend that on clothes, imagine how many rugs i could buy"

 

he turned to me with a very serious face and said "you collect rugs?" he thought i meant rugs for the floor!!

 

also one years ago from another male (typical!) when talking about a horses feathers, he piped up "i thought horses had fur, not feathers?"

Norwegian Fjords - the golden horses with the golden hearts. Minty, Loki, Teiko, Willow, Cherry & Charlie - my lovely ponies :)

My Mum, pointing at my friends horse- "why's he wearing a sunhat?"

Me, laughing- "its not a sunhat, its a poll guard" :)

A friend told me they had brought their other half to the yard, while she was mucking out she asked him to fill a haynet, after a while she went to see where he had got too, he hadnt realised it opened at the top and was filling it through the holes!!

------ End Quote ------

 

I've heard the exact same thing!! Then the person was horrified when I informed him that "no, the dentist uses a file, and some use power tools with a file on the end" 

 

But to be honest, before I was properly horsey, I was also horrified at that prospect. Now I've seen it done I understand!

The competition is now closed and we're just about to pick a winner.

We'll accept answers before this post as we understand it may have taken a little while to log on/sign up.

We'll let you know who our winners are in a little while...
