    Default Dangerous substance in horse hair

    > This is a public service announcement.
    >
    > In a press release today, the National Institute of Health has announced the discovery of a potentially dangerous substance in the hair of horses. This substance, called "amobacter equuii" has been linked with the following symptoms in females:



    > Reluctance to cook, clean or do housework.
    >
    > Reluctance to wear make-up, good clothes or heels.
    >
    > Reluctance to spend money on home or car repairs until after "baby has new shoes,
    > pad, blanket, tack, grain, hay & supplements".
    >
    > "Amobacter equuii" usually results in long hours away from home and exhaustion
    > which may lead to a loss of physical contact with other humans (especially husbands).
    >
    > "Amobacter equuii" is thought to be addictive, driving the need for additional
    > sources - this may lead to a "herd mentality" or like the potato chip commercial, "you can't have just one".
    >
    > Beware! If you come in contact with a female human infected by this substance, be prepared to talk about horses for hours.
    >
    > Surgeon General's Warning:
    > Horses are expensive, addictive, and may impair the ability to use common sense.

    I've suffered from this for most of my life. It's really impacted my personal relationships and at times strains my marriage.

    There is no known cure, however, spending long hours with equines and large amounts of currency at tack stores seems to alleviate some of the symptoms.

    I belive that there may be some genetic predisposition for this as well. DD seems as afflicted as I am.
