Truisms of Horse Owning

If you do a thorough check of your trailer before hauling, your truck will break down.

There is no such thing as a sterile barn cat.

A horse’s misbehavior will be in direct proportion to the number of people watching.

Tack you hate never wears out; blankets you hate are indestructible; horses you hate cannot be sold and will outlive you.

One horse isn’t enough, two are too many.

You can’t push on a lounge line.

If the horse is advertised as “under $5000. you can bet he isn’t $2500.

An uncomplicated horse can be ruined with enough schooling.

You cannot run a barn without baling twine.

Hoof picks migrate.

The wind is always in your face; hills are always up; and it never starts raining until the race has begun.

If you fall off, you will always land on the site of your most recent injury.

The only time you and your horse do something perfectly will be when no one is watching.

The best foals your stallion sires are the ones foaled just after you have him gelded.
