Now, I'm not in the market for a horse, but like most horsey folks, I can't help but look at the sale ads posted in magazines, at tack stores, or at horse shows. It's an addiction, but on the scale of 0 - Crackhead, I figure it's a pretty innocuous one.
This particular ad caught my eye as I was heading up the stairs to register my daughter for her classes at the Four Seasons horse show last Sunday. I glanced at it as I walked by, did a double-take, and stopped to get a better look. Three seconds later I was laughing my butt off and trying to avoid being incontinent.
Alaskan Warmblood? Custom bridle included?? Reserve Champion 2010 "Top Guns of the Tundra" All Breed Show? Sadly outgrown at 19.3hh!! BWAHAHAHAHA!!!! This was AWESOME!
Of course, while I was laughing my head and offering mental kudos to the comic genius that created it, part of me was thinking, "Gee, I wish my mare would get her knees up like that."
"If you would stop jumping up my neck, I certainly could!" is the Sainted Mare's pithy response.
