I thought folks would appreciate some funny experiences my brother sent to me. He is a ranger, riding horseback, at local county parks in the Golden area. Sometimes, you have to laugh! Happy trails:
Out in the park, riding Cooper (my horse), I came across a young guy walking a dog.
Young guy: "Excuse me, but why do dog owners have to pick up their poop, but horse owners don't?"
Me: "Because that's the park regulation."
YG: "But what's the reason?"
Me: "Because dogs are carnivores and horses are herbivores."
Me: "So horses' poop disintegrates in a week, but dogs' poop takes a couple of months."
YG: "What's a herbivore?"
I rode back to the parking lot at the end of the ride. Cooper was a little sweaty, and this lady comes up to me:
Lady: "Excuse me, but what's the matter with your horse's fur?"
Me: "I'm sorry, I don't understand."
L: "Your horse's fur is all funny."
Me: "Sorry, I still don't understand."
L: "Is he shedding?"
Me: "No, it's the middle of January."
L: "Well, his fur looks all funny."
Me: "I'm sorry, ma'am, horses don't have fur. They have hair."
L: "Oh, whatever."
