The bartender says ‘why the long face’?”. What resulted were some hilarious replies to the challenge. Below are two of my favorites.

Triple Crown Trivia

American Pharoah and Triple Crown Trivia at Horse Sense and Cents

So, if you’re in the mood to let this high continue, you’ll enjoy the bit of fun history below. Honestly, after so many disappointments, I didn’t see American Pharoah as a contender.

Horses (and the dumb things people do with them) will make you laugh

There have been a couple of mornings when the wind is fierce and the temperatures low that all horses are enjoying the comfort inside the run-ins. Most days, though, a number of herd members have decided these new additions to their living quarters are an ideal lavatory. I’m getting ready to hang signs to re-label all the run-ins ‘outhouses.’

Horse Seller’s Terms – a translation list to make you laugh out loud

This is procured. I don’t have a way to attribute the work (wish I did as I’d like to converse with the author and so want to give credit where due as this is just laugh out loud funny in it’s read on the not-so-far-from the truth). It’s like so many things that circulate around the web these days that go viral and lose the source information in transit. It’s sad. I won’t get into a copyright lecture here, but…

We may feature you in a future blog post. This week’s chuckle comes from one of the youngest members of our herd. Our four-month-old Irish Draught Sport Horse filly has been an imp from the start.
