    Default You know you are horsey when...

    You are cleaning tack with your brand new puppy at your feet and find a keeper off of a western saddle and realize it is the perfect size for a collar!
    Yes, she is wearing saddle parts for the next couple of weeks.

    Or you are entertained by your new dog brush (Zoom Groom) that is basically a curry comb with longer tongs.

    I also cluck at my dog all the time without thinking about it, and he responds well to them (Horse, however, does not respond to dog commands...)

    It's cheaper to use an old stirrup leather for a large dog collar than it is to go buy one.

    When I was a kid, I would tell my dog "whoa". She learned to sit when I did!

    I use an old stirrup leather for my arrow quiver. I shoot a longbow and sometimes actually hit the 3D target when at a tournament.

    Thanks I needed to laugh. I remember trying to get boots on my youngest when he was 4 or so and being told "Mommy, I'm not a horse!"

    Then I realized I had been saying "Leg up!" while grabbing his ankle. lol

    I am sure my boys have a few stories to tell about me like that too.

    Yes everyone I have trained (kids/horses/dogs/cats/husband) all respond to whoa,come & clucks and various equine/canine hand signals LOL.

    But when I shout "HERE" boy does everybody sit up and take notice. Instant obedience when mom really means it.

    My trainer has converted old reins into nice dog leashed using a couple of snaps and chicago screws. Waaay cheaper than buying a leather dog leash!

    When you start referring to portions of salad to flakes of salad...

    Or to get someone to move over you say "Over!"
