Murphy's Horse Laws

1.  If you do a thorough check of your trailer before hauling, your truck will break down.

2.  There is no such thing as a sterile barn cat.

3.  No one ever notices how you ride until you fall off.

4.  A horse's misbehavior will be in direct proportion to the number of people who are watching.

5.  Tack you hate never wears out; blankets you hate cannot be destroyed; horses you don't like
      cannot be sold and will outlive you.

6.  Clipper blades will become dull only when the horse is half finished. 
      Clipper motors will quit only when you have the horse's head left to trim.

7.  If you're wondering if you left the water on in the barn, you did. 
     If you're wondering if you latched the pasture gate, you didn't.

8.  One horse isn't enough; two is too many.

9.  If you approach within 50 feet of the barn in your "street clothes," you will get dirty.

10.  You can't push a horse on a lunge line.

11.  If a horse is advertised "under $5,000," you can bet he isn't $2,500.

12.  The number of horses you own increases according to the number of stalls in your barn.


And More Murphy's Horse Laws . . .

13.  An uncomplicated horse can be ruined with enough schooling.

14.  You can't run a barn without baling twine and duct tape.

15.  Hoof picks migrate.

16.  You always think to call the farrier when you're nowhere near a phone.

17.  There is no such thing as the "right feed."

18.  If you fall off, you will land on the site of your most recent injury.

19.  The least useful horse in your barn eats to most, requires corrective shoeing every three weeks
        and requires the services of the vet a minimum of once a month.

20.  The horse you really want you can't afford.  The horse you can afford isn't for sale.

21.  Bailing twine multiplies in the dark.

22.  No one really learns how to swear until they learn how to ride.

23.  Ninety-eight percent of all riders consider themselves above average riders.

24.  Dressage tests always seem to be ridden next to a hang-glider competition.
