    Ice cream with cookie dough and peanut butter mixed in. Then smothered in whipped cream and sprinkles.

    Sometimes I don't even use a bowl. I'll just take a spoonful of each and just shove it in.

    Or after a rough day your DH thinks it's funny to fill up a wine bottle with 7-Up, reseal it and then offer you a glass

    I think that's more borderline torture than barbaric.

    I have a tiny Warmblood mare who I call Munchkin. Cuz compared to all the other horses in the stable she is so tiny!

    My other Warmblood gets called Goober. I have no idea why it just suits him!

    You also can't force or make a horse when you get to the higher levels. The horses do this beacause they enjoy it and can do it. There's been plenty of horses sacked and moved to another job because...

    I live in Australia, so costs may be a bit different. But my husband is bringing 2 horses back up to 2* level this year. Hopefully.

    So his doctor said that we have a problem, but it's a bit beyond his field of knowledge so he's managed to get my husband into a few specialists (cardiologist and haematologist off the top of my...

    Struggling with husbands health problems

    This reminds me SO much of one of my friend's daughters. When she was about 3 she so innocently looked up at me in the middle of a conversation and said to me "Motherf&#^er is a bad word isn't it?"

    When his favourite brand of tea was discontinued I hunted down and brought as many boxes of it as I could!

    I groom for him at ODE's and jumping days. And don't complain even though he sometimes...

    I had a little TB stallion whom I lovingly referred to as my little sausage horse. He was downhill, long in the back but had a heart of gold. He took everything in his stride and we were working our...

    I generally find horses in Europe a lot better quality for your money. Simply because of the sheer number over there and how much more depth they have in their breeding program. Also they have a lot...

    You can get just the sleeves to wear with a polo which makes it much cooler!

    My husband rides in a Flyover. It doesn't run small on sizes as his is a 17.5" like his other saddle. I'm 99.9% sure its wool flocked as well.

    Its like carrying around a jockey pad. I love it when...

    He's not a distinguishing horse by any means, plain bay with 2 white socks. But he is branded from a large and very well known stud. So it would only take a few questions to figure out who he is.
