Or call it equestrians. We've all had those conversations with fellow equestrians where we admit we have a certain level of craziness. If you ask my non-horsey significant other he will tell you all about how nutty us horse people are.
Sometimes though I take my level of horse craziness to a new level. Like the the couple of times where I have owned 5 horses all at once. Or buying a horse without telling my husband and trying to hide said horse from him until I could come up with a plan to break the news (found out grey horses are hard to hide at night). Or driving several hours away to buy a mini horse from a breeder because....well I just wanted one...and I wanted it to have papers...in case I wanted to break into mini horse showing and...stuff. Or waking up in the middle of the night because an unexpected storm rolled in and bringing all the horse in. Or spending hours and hours of my day taking care of all of these equines.
Occasionally I do question my own level of horse craziness/obsession. Let's take last night. It rained all day which in FL means 6+ inches of rain all at once and thus creating small ponds all over the place. I hated the thought of keeping the horses in all night (rain had stopped) so after the National Championship game I went out to the barn and turned everyone out. At midnight. Then cleaned stalls so they would be fresh when they came inside in the morning. And replenished hay. And water. At one point I thought I thought I saw our bedroom light on and thought for sure husband will surely conclude I have lost my mind this time (whew false alarm). Then of course I got up at 5:30 am the next morning to bring horses in and go to work (completely exhausted).
So what sort of crazy things have you done for your horses? Out with it, I can't be the only person who does horse crazy things!
