    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......
    send some of their smart literate deer who can read road signs up here since ours are just run of the mill dumb ones who get splatted all over creation because they won't stay in the woods
