All I Need To Know...

" Grady"

Thought this was funny and accurate. It seems someone captured my herd's wisdom perfectly!

All I need to know in life I leaned from my horses - Vol. 1
  1. When in doubt, run far, far away.
  2. You can never have too many treats.
  3. Passing gas in public is nothing to be ashamed of.
  4. New shoes are an absolute necessity every 6 weeks.
  5. Ignore cues; they're just another prompt to do more work.
  6. Everyone loves a good, wet, slobbery kiss.
  7. Never run when you can trot.
  8. Never trot when you can walk.
  9. And never walk when you can stand still.
  10. Heaven is eating at least 10 hours a day...and then sleeping the rest.

All I need to know in life I learned from my horses - Vol. 2
  1. Eat plenty of roughage.
  2. Great legs and a nice rear will get you anywhere in life. Big, brown eyes help too.
  3. When you want your way, stomp hard on the nearest foot.
  4. In times of crises, take a poop.
  5. Act dumb when faced with a task you don't want to do.
  6. Follow the herd, that way you can't be singled out to take the blame.
  7. A swift kick in the butt will get anyone's attention.
  8. Love those who love you back, especially if they have something good to eat.
  9. Leather and chains can make anyone look studly.
  10. Happiness is a warm, fuzzy blanket and someone to share it with.

Until next time

When in doubt, ask a horse.


  1. Great post! Awesome photo!

  2. And the word verification is off! Woo hoo!

  3. Knotty Dogs,
    Thanks for the input on the word verification.

  4. Very cute! -- and I guess I wasn't clear on my post. Outside leg back is the correct aid for canter. My problem is that I do it at the walk and the trot and ... sheesh! If I just did it at canter, that would be okay.

  5. Okay, #5 and #6 on part two describes my office completely! Lol

    Great post!

  6. I could post every one of these on my How to Live a Good Life list but then I would have to move in to your barn!

  7. Awe so true it is! Thanks for sharing.

  8. Definitely the roughage! *LOL*

    It's almost ironic about how many of these do apply to us as well.

    It just proves, once and for all, horses are smart. *G*

    Thanks for defeating the evil word verification.

  9. Funny! I guess there's not a lot of difference between our world and theirs after all!

  10. That photo is priceless and I'm so going to steal the text of this post from you.
    Sorry ;-)

  11. Carolina,
    Be my guest, take whatever you want.

  12. Too cute (but then again you know how much I love a good yawn ;o)
