Murphy’s Horse Laws

  • There is no such thing as a sterile barn cat
  • No one ever notices how you ride until you fall off
  • The least useful horse in your barn will eat the most, require shoes every four weeks, and need the vet at least once a month
  • A horse’s misbehavior will be in direct proportion to the number of people who are watching
  • Your favorite tack always gets chewed on, and your new blanket gets torn
  • Tack you hate will never wear out; blankets you hate cannot be destroyed
  • Horses that annoy you cannot be sold and will outlive you
  • Clipper blades will become dull when your horse is half clipped
  • If you approach within 50 feet of your barn in clean clothes, you will get dirty
  • The number of horses you own will increase to the number of stalls in your barn
  • Your barn will fall down without baling twine
  • Hoof picks always run away from home
  • If you fall off, you will land on the site of your most recent injury
  • If you are winning, then quit, because there is only one way to go. Down!
