19 Things That All Horse Owners Can Relate To…

19 things that all horse owners can relate to…

  1. The hay man running late … again
  2. The colour of feed and water bowls have to co ordinate, pink for mare, blue for gelding (unless you’re a girly girl and EVERYTHING is pink, even the poor geldings rug!)
  3. Electric fencing that won’t stay in place
  4. Horses that escape, with said electric fencing, being trashed (poles) and trodden into the mud (fencing) – must remember to buy new battery
  5. Overflowing muck heaps and the individual that likes to dump at the bottom, every time!
  6. The wheelbarrow, that’s been left full, every time you go to use it
  7. Gates that don’t close without a lift, push, pull and a clang
  8. Picking the horse’s rug up, from the middle of the field, in Jodhpur boots….
  9. Getting stuck in the mud close to the gate with 5+ large horses cantering towards you
  10. Tacking up, climbing on board and entering the arena, only to realise the horse is lame
  11. On bringing a non ‘horsey’ friend to the yard, it’s a complete mess and the horse acts like a twit the entire time
  12. The snapped shavings falk is telling of a heavy winter
  13. Turning out when you’re in a rush, in the dark and not being able to find the last horse’s lead rope
  14. Getting to the yard to realise your muckers are at home and you have to muck out in work heels
  15. Horse shoes getting torn off in bog
  16. The items of tack and yard gear that just disappear
  17. Drumming up the enthusiasm to ride, yet when you arrive the arena is in use, by more than one rider
  18. Strange looks from shoppers in the supermarket, school mums and those in coffee shops
  19. Partners that never understand the importance of getting out of bed and down to the yard for 8am on a weekend
