Laughing hard because what you all say is so true! I cluck at people - at first my husband was annoyed but he's started clucking too...at the cat or just when he feels the need to cluck!
I was at a golf tournament last month and read "PGA" out loud - but really said GPA....and was corrected by avid golfers. Oops!
My car smells like a bag of apple wafers....
I cluck at people and other cars, and start mumbling about how they need to go forward. My legs twitch too :)
When my stomach hurts I say I've "colicked"
I have a tack room in the back of my car and a saddle rack in my dorm room.
I also crane my head to look at the horses when passing a farm.
I try to determine the jumpability of various objects in people's yards: benches, landscaping banks, the picket fence, the drainage ditch, etc.
My sisters set up grids for my dogs to jump. They're actually pretty good at getting the distances right.
Ive told my dogs to canter. "Come Otis. Hurry, canter!"
I'll watch the way that people walk, and if they have a defect in their gait, I'll think to myself, I can fix that with the right trim and shoeing.
There isn't much that I can't fix with baling twine or horseshoe nails.
I live in a very equestrian town, and overheard a little girl in the grocery store tell her Mom "My back leg is hurting me"
Instead of using German or Dutch commands, I taught my GSD (schutzhund clubbing) commands like "Whoa, That'll do, Gee, and Haw" I mean, it's not like anyone I'd be working him with knows the commands, right?
I avoid walking behind a car (running or not). If I have to, I often find myself putting a hand on the trunk or rear hatch so it won't spook and kick me.
I was caught myself looking at the air above someone's head trying to find out what their mood is. (Oops, humans don't have ears there! :lol:)
I record pieces of music from freestyle dressage videos on youtube and I do 1 of 2 things to them:
1.) Listen to them (most common)
2.) Match my gaits and movements to them (only done 3x)
I have used the terms, foal, colt, filly, weanling, yearling, long yearling for humans (unintentionally). Oh joy, I can see a sign on my crotch that says "insert foot here" :uhoh: :lol:.
I always lead shopping carts from the left (although this may be for practical reasons, I can pull MUCH harder than I push)
I got caught petting and playfully scritching my car... I half expected my car to nuzzle me back... :uhoh: :lol: I think I may have a problem... :lol:
I actually clip my S/O's eye brows and ear hair and I say: He clips and ties well.
I also tend to look at joggers/runners and see what kind of mover they are and how sound they'll be in 10 years.
Lots but one thing I did today was put my finger into my co-workers arm...hard.....and said "move over"...teehee ...boy did he ever think I was rude!! @ least I didn't cluck!!
