What No One Told You About Owning Your Own Horse

Our last blog “Weird Stuff Horse People Do” was a hilarious hit. So we are back with another relatable post that we know you'll want to read. We posted on Facebook last month and these are some of the responses we got.

"There is no drama like barn drama. Do not spectate. Run." -Jennifer L.
 
"That they don’t drink like a dog. When I was 7 I thought my horse was drowning himself" -Amy T.
  
"All horse people have some level of psychotic tendencies" -Noelle K.
 
"Do NOT own a mare” -Laurie R.
 
"How crazy the people that come with the horse industry can be." -Rebekah C.
 
"Put GPS on shoes so they are easier to find!" Anja T.. 
 
"The expensive injuries and the rehab!" - Joyce C.
 
"Ponies are not just for kids. I'm an older person ride a med pony ." -Katie L. 
 
"I definitely should have just collected rocks... but now I'm a pony-squisher for life" -Lizzie L.
