    Default IMPORTANT: PSA for Pregnant COTHers and New Moms!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Even the Smallest Bite from a Horse could be harmful to newborns. Public health advocates suggest that parents should avoid common mistakes like "loading a stroller with carrots and apples" and "soaking a baby in cider and dangling it in front of a horse":

    Happy baby-growing to all of you.
    Sincerely,

    Well, I AM glad there's no apparent risk of injury to the horse from biting a newborn. That's one less thing for horse owners to worry about!!

    Now if a newborn is dipped in cider and dangled close enough, my beasts are going to inhale the whole thing, diapers and all!

    Thank God for The Onion!!!

    I had planned to bpth dip my baby in cider, and surround her with carrots and apples, before taking her to the barn. Now I know better!

    Can I still balance a bucket of oats on her head??

    Well, I guess we were the lucky ones since I used to store Baby Sophie in her pack & play with all the horse treats while I rode....

    Dang, guess I won't be leaving my infant in their feed buckets with the treats anymore while I go about cleaning stalls.
    The one good thing about repeating your mistakes is that you know when to cringe.

    The reaction I get when I tell people I'm still pregnant and still riding is similar to the one I'd get if I told them I put my son in a tub of apples and left him alone in a horse pasture. They talk like I'm about to spontaneously combust or get smited by the Lord. Rolling eyes......
