In a press release today, the National Institute of Health has announced
the discovery of a potentially dangerous substance in the hair of horses.
This substance, called "amo-bacter equuii" has been linked with the following
symptoms in female humans:

*reluctance to cook
*reluctance to perform housework
*reluctance to wear anything but boots
*reluctance to work except in support of a horse
*physical craving for contact with horses (may be an addiction)

Beware! if you come in contact with a female human affected by this
substance be prepared to talk about horses for hours on end.

This was a public service announcement ...

Surgeon General's Warning: Horses are expensive, addictive, and may impair
the ability to use common sense.

Be careful out there ladies.

Undoubtedly this is too true.
Do you know if there is a 12-step program to help combat the addiction?
Naaahhhh, I don't want that!

Kinda late to tell me that. Anyway , I'm already to happy .. in this "addiction" !

Jayke said...

Holy NOW they come out with this announcement!

Ahh well at least for those of us who have been dealing with this disease (addiction is a disease!) for years, there will be more public understanding of our affliction, and maybe…some day…people will stop staring at me when I pump gas in my riding attire.

PS - confirmation word…sally? Interesting.

I knew of one such girl who really loved her horse. But very sadly, she died very young/ I wrote the above post in memory of her.
