    Red face You know you really ARE a horse-obsessed whack job...

    ...when, while you are in your local grocery store's parking lot and you see a car licence plate that says "Lamaze," your first thought is (I kid you not) ...Eric is here?

    I once overheard half of a commercial in which all I heard was "lamaze" and "clinic". I was overjoyed at the thought of Eric doing a local clinic. They I realized it was just birthing classes at the local health clinic. Color me disappointed.

    1) You Cluck to your animals that are not horses
    2) You cluck to your kids
    3) You poke kids, husbands, family in the ribs to move them over
    4) You catch yourself reaching to poke a stranger over
    5) You ride your ATV in a 2 point position with heels down over bumps in the road

    I do that too... complete with holding leashes like reins. I cluck, kiss, and tell them over and they respond just as my horses do!

    I don't yell at my DD, but will clap and say "Ach!" like I do when somebody is pawing or being a pill on the x-ties, usually when she's getting into something she's not supposed to.

    I find myself saying 'easy' over and over in high pressure situations. Moreso when there are angry people involved.

    I half halt my dogs all the time. Well, dog now. I have played the game where I get the car to a designated speed when the front tires are in line with the speed limit sign.

    I have also tried to leg yield my car, and have squared my shoulders to try to get it to go straighter. Oy.

    My dad gave me a piggy back ride when I was younger and started hopping around "bucking" so I dug my heels in his sides. He was NOT amused. I was! And I was pretty proud the "go forward" instinct had been so thoroughly installed

    We are all very active car drivers aren't we?
    Yesterday I saw a commercial on the golf channel for Absorbine and was SHOCKED that it was being marketed for people. Well not shocked because I've used it for myself ... But I had no idea it wasn't just a horse thing!
