I hate horses

...because every time I see them I fall in love with them all over again, and I want to have them again. And that sucks because I can afford neither the time, nor the energy, nor, of course, the money to venture down that road.
We were out at a family friend's farm for grandpa's birthday party and they had a two-week-old colt named Thunder.

"Hello, giant nose!"
Unrelated to horses, but: Harmzie & the BILs (and, well, Max, because he's not my BIL). They made a whirlwind trip in from Calgary for the occasion.

Stumble Upon Toolbar


  1. Try a donkey. They're not nearly as expensive and/or time consuming but they are incredibly cute and guaranteed to bring giant sunshiney smiles to everyone's face. And also you can make a lot of lame jokes about your ass. Heh.

  2. I want a horse too. I have this fantasy world where I become rich, but still live a simple life on a farm. However, in this fantasy I am rich enough to have someone else get up at the asscrack of dawn and take care of the animals and I just wander around and pet them.

  3. Some of our neighbours have horses in their front and back yards.

  4. I have a massive love-on for horses, too. I think it was Tom Robbins who said girls always like horseback riding because it's equivalent to "above the covers" masturbation.

    I can never decide if that's funny as hell or ridiculously insulting.
