Have you gone over the facts with this girl you are "seeing"

The Myth

Horses are smart and noble beasts. They are loyal to their owners and brave, even on the field of battle. If you whisper to them they will listen.

The Reality

Horses are probably the dumbest domesticated animal. Horses react violently to bright colors. I once watched a horse attack a man in a red jacket and then try to kick a blue barrel to death. If you move your arms suddenly or they hear a loud sound they will "spook" which is a very polite way of saying "act suicidal and retarded". When a horse is spooked it will run into fences or trip and fall, which is usually a disaster because their legs are balsa wood sticks that snap at the slightest injury. Horses are also gluttons. If you give them a big bucket of grain they will eat it until they die. Trained horses like cavalry horses can be conditioned to ignore some of the things they find scary, but even a well-trained horse is one firecracker away from becoming a rampaging moron.


You planning on taking your large bright colored kites out to fly and ride around a horse ranch?
Somebody's prolly gonna die.

I know it all sounds well and good, but I too have been around horses, even when you are out of sight these neurotic beasts freak out just hearing that you are there.
Just hearing the clap of your board on the snow, or the chatter of your kite in the air, these worthless creatures will tie themselves in knots and bust themselves up and the local real estate.

Dooze-E, you better get a signed waiver releasing you of all liability, before you go... Surely you don't want to be on the hook for any equine med expenses, or related proprty damges.
