    You change lanes while driving and your "inside" leg moves to apply pressure.

    Your daughter's birth announcement reads: "it's a filly!"

    While walking your dog, you hold the leash like a rein.

    No one wants to ride in your car because they'll get sweet feed and hay in their socks and purses...but that's ok because then you'd have to rearrange all the tack to make room for them, anyways!

    Someone does something nice for you and you say "good boy" or "atta girl" and pat them on the neck.

    Your boyfriend complains that you love your horse more then you love him and you answer:
    "And your point is?"

    You say "whoa" to your dogs.

    You say "whoa" to your kids.

    You say "whoa" to your truck.

    You see the vet more than you see your child's pediatrician.

    Your horse gets new shoes more often than you do.

    You can find your boots in the dark by the aroma.

    You always have new foal pictures in your wallet.

    You've considered moving into the barn since it is cleaner.

    You stop channel surfing when you see the Budweiser Clydesdales!

    When your horse eats better than you.

    You spend your rainy days cleaning the tack room instead of the house.

    You have a $17,000 trailer and a $1700 dollar truck.

    You clean your tack room more than your house.

    You kiss your horse more than your husband/boyfriend and its a lot better.

    People walk in to your house take a sniff and say '' Oh I didn't know you had horses".

    You walk past someone and instead of saying "excuse me" you poke them in the ribs and say "over".

    You go to the barn wearing white and are dirty within seconds.

    No one wants to wash their clothes with yours because they'll come out covered in horse hair.

    You spend more time at the barn then at home (and it shows).

    You choose to ride in a blizzard rather than go to a restaurant with your boyfriend/husband.

    You know your a horse person when you horse has a wardrobe of blankets and
    clothes bigger than yours.

    You'd rather muck stalls than clean your bedroom.

    Your horse smells better than you do.

    You KNOW you're a horseperson when...
    You have 3 daughters (no sons), BUT you refer to your favorite gelding as your son.
    You are more excited about getting barn clothes than a dress.
    Your Christmas/birthday (it's the same list for me) LIST always includes large, motorized farm vehicles.
    Your DD get a cut, you point them to the first aid kit, your horse gets a cut, everybody has to line up to help tend it. (then, make a fuss over the horse)

    You'll pay considerably more, for the same hay that the rancher feeds his cows.

    I say "Whoa" to the shopping cart ALL THE TIME when shopping to the point DH doesn't want to go in the store with me

    Said DH is also used to bits on the kitchen table, horsehair in his food and all of our trips revolving around competitions and/or awards banquets
