How Many Horses Does It Take To Change A Light Bulb?

Well, I've had computer difficulties tonight which left me with no time to write my blog. So instead I'm going to share with you a little humor that was sent my way viA email.

* Thoroughbred: Who ME?? Do WHAT? I'm scared of light bulbs! I'm outta here!
* Arabian: I changed it an hour ago. C'mon you guys - catch up!
* Quarter Horse: Put all the bulbs in a pen and tell me which one you want.
* Standardbred: Oh for Pete's Sake, give me the darn bulb and let's be done with it.
* Shetland: Give it to me. I'll kill it and we won't have to worry about it anymore.
* Friesian: I would, but I can't see where I'm going from behind all this mane.
* Belgian: Put the Shetland on my back, maybe he can reach it then.
* Warmblood: Is the 2nd Level Instruction Packet in English? Doesn't anyone realize that I was sold for $75K as a yearling, but only because my hocks are bad, otherwise I would be worth $100K? I am NOT changing lightbulbs. Make the TB get back here and do it.
* Morgan: Me! Me! Me! Pleeease let me! I wanna do it! I'm gonna do it! I know how, really I do! Just watch! I'll rewire the barn after, too.
* Appaloosa: Ya'll are a bunch of losers. We don't need to change the lightbulb, I ain't scared of the dark. And someone make that darn Morgan stop jumping up and down before I double barrel him.
* Haflinger: That thing I ate was a lightbulb?
* Mustang: Lightbulb? Let's go on a trail ride, instead. And camp. Out in the open like REAL horses.
* Lipizzaner: Hah, amateurs. I will change the lightbulb. Not only that, but I will do it while standing on my hind legs and balancing it on my nose, after which I will perform seven flying lead changes in a row and a capriole. Can you do that? Huh? Huh? Didn't think so.
* Miniature: I bet you think I can't do it just cause I'm small. You know what that is? It's sizeism!
* Akhal Teke: I will only change it if it's my owner's lightbulb and no one else has ever touched it.
* Andalusian: I will delegate the changing of the lightbulb to my personal groom after he finishes shampooing my mane and cleaning my saddle, but only on the condition that it is changed for a soft blue or green bulb, which reflects better off my coat while I exhibit my astonishing gaits.
* Cleveland Bay: I'm busy. Make the whipper-in and the hounds do it.
* Saddlebred: My ears are up already, please, please get the lightbulb away from me! I'm ready to show, really, I promise I'll win!
* Paint: Put all the lightbulbs in a pen, tell me which one you want, and my owner will bet you twenty bucks I can get it before the quarter horse.
* POA: I'm not changing it. I'm the one who kicked the old one and broke it in the first place, remember? Now, excuse me, I have a grain room to break into.
* Grade Horse: Guys? Um, guys? I hope you don't mind, but I went ahead and changed it while you were all arguing.


  1. I love it. I've seen it before but it's always a good read. So true too. LOL

  2. LOL! This list is always good for a laugh! Thanks for sharing especially on such a dreary rainy day! :D

  3. I love this one. Thanks for posting it and I hope your computer blues are over soon.

  4. That was great! The POA is so true.

    It was a great lesson! Actually he wasn't really giving me a lesson, just as he was leaving noticed what was going on, came to the fence and helped me for about 20minutes, which was great!!

    I haven't found a theme I really like yet, I'm picky when it comes to that hehe ;). I was tweaking the code and I can't get the comment font back to normal. But hopefully you'll be able to read it better.

    Errika is doing great! She comes out everyday, goes on her walks, gets her grain and is eating hay two times a day now. She's doing so well! In less than a month I'll start her back on a exercise routine.

    Hope all is well with you, thanks for the comment!

    Happy Horsing,

  5. I think everyone should have a grade horse :)

  6. This was very cute. I enjoyed it, even though I am not very knowledgeable about horses. I think my oldest daughter will be reading your blog soon as I mentioned it to her. My kids have a big interest in horses and have been riding at the farm. We have donkeys, and the younger two will ride them, and give guests rides. They are great caregivers, and clean their hooves and brush them almost daily.

  7. lady of chaos, I had seen it before too but it still makes me laugh so I decided to share it. I need to post something fun once in a while. lol

    equinespirit, yes, the weather was getting to me too.

    kathy c, I hope my computer blues are finished soon too. But I don't know if I need a new sound card or a new motherboard but it's making me crazy.

    callie, everytime I read this, I wonder who the person is that had such a good insight into the nuances of all of those different breeds.

    keri, yes we had a POA at one time. He was quite a character.

    I hope when you decide on the final look that you like for your blog, that the font is bigger on the post as well as the comments. I'm serious. I can hardly read it. My eyes water before I get to the bottom of the post. It's very small and I have a big monitor because of how blind I am.

    molly, I'm not sure if everyone needs a grade horse or not, but one with that kind of attitude might be fun.

    dawn, it's pretty cool that your daughers like horses and they have an outlet where they can experience them.
