Chicken Soup for the Horse Lover's Soul II: Inspirational Tales of Passion, Achievement and Devotionby Jack Canfield Mark Victor Hansen Marty Becker Peter Vegso Theresa Peluso Teresa Becker
You Know You're A Horse Lover When ... If you won a snazzy new sports car in the lottery you'd trade it in for a pickup truck with a towing package. Your paycheck barely covers your food bill but all your horses eat premium foods. All the other girls were designing their dream home, you were designing your dream barn. You spend far more on your riding clothes than on the rest of your wardrobe. You call the vet when a horse just looks cross-eyed but a family member has to be on their death bed before you take them to see the doctor. Your barn is cleaner than your house. You are better at braiding your horse's tail than your daughter's hair. You've stopped at more stables than museums while on vacation. You cringe at paying five bucks for lunch but don't blink at spending twenty or thirty on a riding lesson. You can't eat a carrot or apple without feeling guilty about not sharing it with your horse. Your significant other says, "It's me or the horses," and you hesitate . . . You pay more to board your horses than you do for your hotel room.

From the Book Jacket You Know You're a Horse Lover When... You accessorize your hairstyle with pieces of hay. You examine every piece of rope or twine for its halter potential. You think a great vacation is spending a long weekend in front of a horse trailer by a dusty arena. You spend more money on horseshoes than on your own shoes. You always keep carrots, apples and sugar cubes in your pocket. You prefer the smell of a stable to cologne. You sleep with your boots on and count horses to fall asleep. Your laugh begins to sound like a horse whinny. Instead of giving someone directions to turn "left" or "right," you tell them to "gee" or "haw." You still have your childhood horse statues in your bedroom. Your favorite outfit is made of leather and includes whips and spurs. You talk to your horse more than you talk to your spouse. You spend more time at the feed store than the grocery store. If you can relate to any of these sentiments, this book is for you! Even if you've never been near a horse, but have always admired them from afar, you'll love these stories celebrating and honoring these noble creatures. Share a copy of Chicken . Soup for the Horse Lover's Soul with a horse-loving friend. You'll both be "whinnying" for more!
