  1. Hee hee, I love the clucking to your car to help it up hills! ;)
    I do have to say that I still rival my horse in clothing though.....

  2. That's some funny and true statements!!! I can especially relate to the "ending relationships" one...having several EX's, who thought that it was okay to discuss the amount of time and money I spent on my horses and "didn't I think I should reduce my herd". I always one---them! LOL

  3. Those are wonderful Mikael! I can relate to almost all of them, well except the sailor language! lol! One more to add to the topicals, Swat, it's neon pink!

    If it doesn't stop raining here I am going to have to teach my horses to swim! We've had 10 straight days of rain and more to come. When I walk out to the barn across the lawn it goes squish, squish, squish!

  4. ROTFL!!! You hit the nail on the head, so true!

    I have horse stuff/things all over our house!!!

  5. Ha! Those totally hit the mark. I'm especially guilty of the neatsfoot/carpet issue.

  6. Thanks for the laugh, I really needed it this evening. They all ring too true. :-)


  7. Hello.this is the first time to visit your site.
    I love horseback riding,but I can't do it now.
    You know, horseback riding is not popular in Japan.
    There is no horseback riding club around my home.
    Have fun with your horses!
    I'm happy if you link to my site.

  8. Haha!! Yep I always cluck my car up hills...I've even caught myself clucking people at times!!! =O

    These lists are so much fun, especially when you relate to every single one!

  9. Oh yeah, and the relationships...I went out with a guy who thought horses were "only good for glue". Needless to say, he was my shortest relationship.

  10. LOL Hi MiKael hope you had a good weekend, I am trying to catch up have lots of photos to prepare for printing and a trailer load of sawdust to unload so am gonna make this a quickie. Love all of these analogies, but one more that sprange to mind
    *keep their barns cleaner and tidier than their houses!
    I dont know if you are like that or anyone else but I find that I can be sometimes LOL.

    Nice lighthearted post.
