WHAT HAPPENS WHEN
YOU IGNORE THE INSTRUCTIONS ON
BOTTLES OF EASY-BOOT GLUE..........
#1. Make sure that you
practice putting on the boot before you pour in the glue.
"Don't have to do that-even though this is brand new boot, I'm sure
it will go on just like the old one.."
#2. Be sure to wear
"I'll just be really careful--No gloves, no prob!"
#3. Be sure to protect
"I'll just be really careful..........."
Pour 1/4 cup from each bottle into a cup.........
"I'll just kind of approximate like I do when I cook (because I'm
such a fabulous cook!!!!!!!)"
AND THE FINAL OUTCOME:
Mixing the stuff up
... so far so good. Pour into boot (seems like an awful lot). Try to apply
boot ... it's NOT going on!!!! Trying to pry on with screw driver ...
pushing and pulling ... HORRIBLE STICKY FOAM IS OOZING OUT OF THE BOOT!!!!
It's everywhere!!! I can't hold the foot up any longer ... have to set it
down. My right hand is stuck to the easy boot! The screwdriver is stuck to
my pants!! Gasping for breath - I try again ... Hay is stuck all over the
boot ... and on my pants ... and now on my hand and horses leg! The boot
is on but it is horribly twisted ... I have to take it off!!
The rest I can't even
talk about except to say ... my pants are permanently rubberized - there
is a screw driver forever stuck to the wheel well of the trailer - My
horse still has hay stuck to her leg - my hands, three days after the
"event", are the consistency of hay-infested elephant skin - and
my brand new easy boot looks like a tiny bale of hay.
SOOOOO - the moral of
the story would have to be ....... read the instructions!

out-of-towner accidentally drives his car into a deep ditch on the side of a
country road. Luckily a farmer happened by with his big old horse named
Benny. The man asked for help. The farmer said Benny could pull his car out.
So he backed Benny up and hitched Benny to the man's car bumper. Then he
yelled, "Pull, Nellie, pull." Benny didn't move. Then he yelled,
"Come on, pull Ranger." Still, Benny didn't move. Then he yelled
really loud, "Now pull, Fred, pull hard." Benny just stood. Then
the farmer nonchalantly said, "Okay, Benny, pull." Benny pulled
the car out of the ditch. The man was very appreciative but curious. He
asked the farmer why he called his horse by the wrong name three times. The
farmer said, "Oh, Benny is blind, and if he thought he was the only one
pulling he wouldn't even try."
To Right A Horse
Mounting a horse is actually very
easy if it is done properly. A rider can only mount a horse from one side
because a horse only likes to be mounted from one side. The left side is
right and the right side is wrong. You're right to be left and wrong to be
right. If you mount from the front, you mount from the right, which is
then the left because your right is its left, and the left the right,
keeping in mind that the left is right and the right is wrong. Put your
left to your right and step so your right is to the wrong and now your
right is opposite its left and left the right. To right right is to the
left and to right is wrong is to the right, but backwards, the right is
right and the left is wrong only when your right is on its wrong, and the
left is on its right. Switching right to left and left to right is wrong.
Right is wrong and left is right only from the front or else the left is
right and the right is wrong.

My wife has a Quarter Horse, with
shortened mane and extra long tail.
She thinks he is the finest thing that ever jogged a rail.
She calls him Dandy Darling, and if the truth I tell,
That fancy pampered Quarter Horse has made my life pure hell!
My wife she used to cook for me and
serve it with champagne.
But now she'd rather feed that horse and fix him special grain!
She rides him every morning, and grooms him half the night.
And the last time that she kissed ME, was just to be polite!
He dresses better than I do, with
matching wraps and ties.
My wardrobe's so neglected now, that I attract the flies!
One day my wife was shopping, she was way down at the mall.
And fancy, pampered DANDY was just a standing in his stall.
He looked so smug and sassy, that I
began to grin.
I'd saddle that fat sucker up, and take him for a spin!!
I've wondered since if the cues I gave, he may have misconstrued.
Cause when I climbed aboard that horse, he rightly came UNGLUED!!!!
He bucked and spun, and snorted
fire, then threw me through a fence!
I saw big stars and there are 6 teeth, that I ain't heard from since!

She rushed up to her HORSE and asked him, "Sweetheart are you

bit, and the memory galls me yet......

Dear Horse Owner:
Are you experiencing too many second and third finishes behind inferior horses
at horse shows? During a trail ride, does your horse forget everything he
was bred to do?
Well, this simple chain letter is meant to bring relief
and happiness to you. Unlike most chain letters, it doesn't cost any
Simply send a copy to six other horse owners who are dissatisfied
with the way that their horse is behaving. Also, bundle up your horse and
send him/her to the horse owner at the top of list, and add your name to the
bottom of the list. Do not use a return address or the post office may try
to contact you.
In one week you should receive 16,436 horses, and at least
one of them should be a keeper.

I get done with the gate?

horse was unharnessed and permitted peacefully to graze while the men fished for an hour

as neither of the city fellows knew how to reharness the horse. Every effort in that
direction met with dire failure, and the worst problem was properly adjusting the bit. The

Lou Holtz (legendary Notre Dame football coach)
told the story of the farmer with the large farm cart that needed to be pulled by his one
horse. Needing to motivate the horse to maximum ability, he called out to the horse
"....on Sandy", and snapped his horse whip in the air; but the horse doesn't
move. Next he calls out "...on Daisy", snaps his whip in the air; again, the
horse doesn't move. Tries "...on Beauty", snaps the whip...nothing. Next the man
calls out "...on Dusty", snaps the whip, and the horse starts pulling the cart.
A bystander, having watched all this, goes up to the farmer and says, "If you knew
the horse's name, why didn't you call that one out first?"
To which the farmer replied, "Dusty's blind; if she thought she had to pull that cart
all by herself, we would've never got going."
Horse Logic Theory (Simplified)
A proof that a horse has an infinite number of
By inspection and symmetry we see that a horse has an even number of legs.
However, when we count them, we see he has two legs in the back and forelegs in the front,
which is a total of six legs.
Six is certainly an odd number of legs for a horse.
The only number that is both odd and even is infinity.
Therefore, a horse has an infinite number of legs.

An Amish man named Samuel was injured when he and
his horse were struck by a car at an intersection. Samuel sued the driver of the car.
In court, he was cross-examined by the driver's lawyer:
Lawyer: Samuel, you've told us all about your injuries. However, according to the accident
report, you told the investigating officer at the scene that you weren't injured at all,
isn't that true?"
Samuel: Well ... let me explain.
Lawyer: Go right ahead (thinking he now had the plaintiff on the ropes). Please tell the
Samuel: When the officer arrived at the scene, he first looked upon my fallen horse.
injured, the officer said to me, 'Looks like he has a broken leg,' and then he took out
his weapon and shot my horse dead. Then the officer came up me and asked me how I was
doing. Of course, I immediately replied, 'I'm OK!'

apparently just wondered off somewhere into the woods. Perkins and his neighbors searched
and called for the animal, but with no result. Finally, one fellow went off alone into the

I had a near death experience that
has changed me forever. The other day, I went horseback riding. Everything was going fine
until the horse starts bouncing out of control. I tried with all my might to hang on, but
was thrown off. Just when things could not possibly get worse, my foot gets caught in the

losing consciousness...the store manager came and unplugged it!

The waiter is a bit shocked by all this, but pours the soda, and brings it over to the horse, who
hands him a ten dollar bill for it. Now the barman figures the horse isn't that bright, so he decides to pull
the old 'short-change' trick on him. He duly goes back to the horse with 1 dollar. The horse doesn't say a
The horse eventually finishes his soda and goes up to the bar to order another. Says the bartender to
him, "Y'know, we don't get many horses in here."
To which the horse replies, "At nine dollars a soda, I'm not surprised.
