You know you have a horse husband when...

1. He brings both digital cameras and the Video Camera to your horse show at 7:30 am for 1 class.

2. He knows pony slang like, sleazy, sport boots, beet pulp, tube wormer, lavander face wipes, pokey stick and gastro-guard.

3. He gives 2nd opinions on new horse prospects. " if they don't look like Blu, I am not interested" ugh...

4. Says things like, not refined enough, head and neck aren't right, I prefer older breeding stock Arabians, I like jug head Quarter Horses and Mules, but Ay-rhabs need to be " pretty" and have big " doe eyes", they need to look like Blu.

5. Gave me his old military hand me downs as barn clothing. I sometimes look like a shop at an Army Surplus Store.:)

6. Gave me the raddest warmest MUCK boots for Christmas one year. I love them.

7. Ran out and got me replacement dress gloves when the ones I ordered came in two sizes to small, the DAY BEFORE the show.

8. When I was being forced to leave my previous barn, he took an afternoon and ON HIS OWN without me asking, went and looked at a place for me. Gave it the thumbs down. :)

9. This is the guy who was raised as horses are for a utility purpose ( dad was a farrier) and live outside, to high maintenance show princess without one word of complaint or snide snickering.

10.Understands my need to make LISTS. :) This is HUGE.

11..Goes to her farrier appointments when I have to work, run to the vet for meds when I can't.

With NO COMPLAINING.........

He is Voted by me and Star as

Horse Husband of the Year 2008 !!

You are super lucky...Joel is a great horsey husband he takes care of the kids and lets me leave the house even before they are sleeping! He will stop by the feed store so I can run in and get what I need...oh and he'll go to Coastal with me so he can look at the yard stuff...But he did turn into the Mucking King while I was PG with Emmie...but he hasn't been back to the barn since she was born...so all in all I think we are both pretty lucky! Although I think you maybe a tad bit luckier! Shawn Wins!
