The other day EN posted 10 Questions People Who Don't Ride Should Stop Asking. They did a good job with that one. They had me laughing because everything was so true. It reminded me of a couple weeks ago when The Other Half said that he had to explain to the other guys he works with what sheath cleaning is. Don't even ask me how the subject came up. He said he explained it to everyone's horror and they were walking around trying to comprehend what he told them for the rest of the day.
My other favorites from that post: When will you be back from the barn? Why do you blindfold your horses in the summer time? Where do you put your horses in the winter? Do you want to do something this weekend besides go to the barn?
Just yesterday someone I had lunch with said "So, where do you keep your horses?" I said, "At our house." He just stared at me like I ignored his question. He said, "No, where are they??" Again I said, "They are at my house..." Blank stare. "They are at my house, like...on the property, we have a HORSE property. There's a human house AND a horse house!" It still didn't register all the way. Not sure where he thought I should be keeping them?
Of course every one knows the worst question you can ask me about my drafts, "Is he/she a Clydesdale?!"
What are some of your top questions that people ask you about your horse(s)?
