The Horse World

1 Nov


After posting about the craziness of the horse world, I realize this could be taken wrong.  So I will dig an even bigger hole by writing more.

I also realize 98.9% of the population does not care about the horse world.  Therefore in order to make this interesting, I need to relate it to something people do care about.

Such as chocolate.  To some people horses are like chocolate.  Or coffee.

But horses are more expensive, and they require tack and supplies and cost money every place you turn.  I think some horse people don’t mind telling a few white lies like, “no, that is not a Hershey bar.  It’s Organic Free Range Chocolate with pure vanilla.  None of that fake vanillin stuff.”

And they hand you a half-eaten Hershey bar.

“No, that isn’t eaten on,” they say, “the end broke off.”

And so it goes, down the slippery slope.  If someone needs to lease or sell a horse, the horse is perfect and can win the Kentucky Derby, never bucks and loves children.

So always make sure your chocolate bar has a wrapper and isn’t half eaten.  Unfortunately horses don’t have a wrapper and you are at the mercy of the horse person and can only hope they are upstanding.

      Thank you, DR. I’m trying to process the horse world and figure it out. Today I just sat on a log under a tree and watched them graze and remembered why I love horses.

What do you think?
