You get irrationally excited when an acquaintance/co-worker/random stranger is wearing jewelry with a horseshoe or snaffle bit theme. They might be another horse person! (or maybe they just wear the horseshoe for luck and will think you're a little off)
You decide whether to seek medical attention by asking yourself, "if Pony had the same symptoms, would I be concerned? Would I call the vet? Haul at break-neck speed to the nearest veterinary hospital?" Then you take whatever the response would be for Pony and downgrade by 1 level for yourself.

You almost drive off the road while rubbernecking to see a horse as you go by.
LOL just this morning! I was driving by a large barn and a horse came tearing around the field in that "YAY I'm out!" bucking and carrying on. I imaging s/he just go done working or something and got turned out. Yeah, kind of drifted a bit on the road LOL. I was smiling to beat the band.
He is total garbage! Quick! Hide him on my trailer (Petstorejunkie).
After only 6 months of owning a brand new car that new car smell is already gone and replaced with the smell of horse and manure (which reminds me of my horse and puts a smile on my face). And you have to hang up a car freshner because anyone that gets in your car wonders what that odor is.
You buy lubricant by the gallon, know the price of hay by the ton, can do feeding amounts needed by any horse you see..in your head, buy jeans in pairs because that's how they wear out (and are distraught when your favorite pair finally wears through), and think that sitting in a resturaunt discussing semen counts and AV sizes and follicle development is normal (and don't notice the looks from neighboring tables).
You cluck and kiss to your dog to get him moving and when he is moving and tearing through the house like a mad man you start yelling "ho!" and wonder why he's unresponsive. HA! Happened this morning...Pre coffee.
When you can walk out into a wet pasture, spot the recent hoof marks of a running horse, follow them, and by judging the depth of the hoof prints, and the direction and length of the skid marks, begin looking in the bottoms of specific hoof prints (holes), and pull the shoe that you're looking for out from the bottom of one of those hole for the farrier to nail back on the horse that came in with the missing shoe.
You're late to work because you HAD to clean your boots and bridle after your lesson this morning... You squeeze your F250 long bed crew cab into two compact parking spaces cuz that's all that was left in the garage and run inside to meet an interview candidate... On the way to reception you run into the bathroom and realize you're wearing your barn coat over your work clothes (cuz you were cold) and it has several bran mash kisses on the front. Proceed to wipe them off with a damp paper towel and pick up candidate in lobby. Return to office and realize you also have several pieces of hay in your hair...
Thank gawd I work at a tech company... I still looked better than 90% of the engineers, half of whom are wearing flip flops even though it's 35 degrees and raining today
