You can teach your horse to fart on command… sort of. Did you know that horses have a fart button?
Years ago, I vented to my coach, “Why is it that every time I lift a back foot, the horse farts on me? What type of gratitude is that?” This question was not meant to be answered, but lo and behold, she had an answer: Fart Button.
If you lift your horse’s tail, put your thumb in the hollow space on the inside of its buttcheek just above the, er, outlet valve, and press, you can make the horse fart. Apparently this muscle is flexed (or something) when you pick up a hind foot, which contributes to the passing of gas. My coach was all too amused and delighted at sharing this little tidbit of information with me and demonstrating its effect. And now I pass it on to you!
I knew that info would come in handy eventually…

OMG now that is some major stupid information that I think could be very handy when I bring home new male friends. HAHAHAHHAHA HSHHSHAHHA I will never get a second date... but it will weed out the wussy from the pricks and the other men (not sure what to call the ones that actually might be amused with girlf. hands being near the bum holeio)
Thank you great Jedi master your teachings will live on through me.
ah the Pat thread.. I left that one long ago.. Did I miss anything? Other than this great info? HA

It's true!!!! I'm an equine massage therapist and the person who taught me showed me the "fart button". Well, she didn't call it that, but I like it! It can actually serve a purpose. If you have a horse that is a little colicky, you can use the fart button to see if gas is still able to pass at least, and relieve some pressure if it is.
You're not the only one. I may have to make a special trip out to the barn just to try this out! (If I can get it to work, I'll have to plan something ... ahem...*special* for Mr. Syn's next visit. *plotting* )
