    The Clyde-X mare as I arrive at dinner time: "Yay, it's the bucket lady!"

    The Percheron mare: "I don't do canter. I do 'mosey.' What's the hurry? Stop and eat the roses."

    "Mom, if you relax then I'll relax"

    This is what Tazz says to me when I am asking for her to accept the bit but my shoulders are tense. The second I relax my shoulders she reaches for the bit.

    I'll think of a funny one later.

    The OTTB after she showed her hiney (and teeth and hooves) to the other horses and I tossed a piece of a pine cone in her general direction " You BITCH. You did NOT just throw a pine cone-you are HOW old? UGH, " I swear she rolled her eyes as she sauntered past me, then laid her ears back at Rebel.

    She may not have changed the stars from their courses, but she loved a good man, and she rode good horses….author unknown

    From my CB/TB mare- "You may be intelligent, Mom, but I am wise".

    From my Perch/CB mare-"Gunshots? Thunder? Fireworks? Strange critters next door? Spooky stuff Mom bought at Dollar Tree to 'bombproof' us? Don't Bug Me...I'm GRAZING!"

    "I told you, didn't I?"
    Never explain yourself to someone who is committed to misunderstanding you.

    "Let me break this down for you. I'm in my twenties and have been to Devon and hunter finals more times than I can count. You've been to about five rated A shows in your whole life.

    Now, who are we going to trust to get us through this course? That's just what I thought."

    This when I started to fuss with Ian on a course, instead of just being quiet and letting him do his job
