Happiness has a Smell

It is 6:30 am and I am off to my sisters for our weekly visit.

I jump on my mustang, or in it I should say: my mustang convertible, RED.

I take the 60  east for about 10 miles and head south.  Yes, of course I had to stop  Starbucks coffee.   Just a simple dark roast, tall with some cream added: way cheaper and a lot less calories.  I just like plain coffee.  Did I say like: I meant LOVE.
Daily Oats Love that Smell of Hay

Anyway, enjoying my top-down, convertible ride as I head  down the highway when all of a sudden the sweet, sweet aroma fills all my senses.  Next, I find myself, hanging my head over the side the window, with my nose pointed up trying to find out where that wonderful smell is coming from, when I realized what I must look like to the rest of the cars around me.  I only could imagine what a dog must sense when they get a whiff of a familiar smell and up goes there noses, hanging out the window, sniffing the air.  Well, at that moment, that was me, like a old hound dog, sniffing the air.

See most of Arizona does not have grass, so they never have to cut it, no grass, no fresh cut grass smell.  Although I think that hay smells different then fresh cut grass, but it is that fresh hay smell that makes my heart go into the full delight mood.

The smell just filled me with that great fondness of complete contentment.  The smell of freshly cut hay, how it lingers and oh, how I love that smell.    Let the other drivers next to me  think that I look like a dog with my head hanging out the side of my car. I don’t care, I just want to find where that smell is coming from.

I just kept sniffing away, however,  I never did see where that smell came from, but I sure enjoyed the experience. It was a total delight to my senses.

Who else would ever hang their head out the window to see who was putting up hay beside a horse nut,  well maybe a cattleman, but most of those have horses as well.

Here is a hint for a happy life:  treasure even the littlest  things you love.: put you nose up to the sky, take a good sniff and ENJOY!

Always remember to Greet the world like your horse greets you, as if there is no tomorrow..

Just WHINNNNNNING out loud as much as possible!

How bad is your horse addiction?

You are Very Bad if!

*if you have hay under your hat as you walk in the house.
*If you examine every piece of rope or twine for its
halter potential.
*If you take someone’s temperature and think 102°F is
normal.
*If you always keep carrots, apples, and sugar cubes in
your refrigerator and ginger snaps on the shelf.
*If you prefer the smell of stable to perfume.
*If, between chores, you nap in the warm room with your boots on
*If you still have your childhood horse statues in your
bedroom.
*If your daughter can’t wait until she’s big enough for tall boots
*If you talk to your horses more than your spouse.
*If you spend more time at the feed store than the grocery
store.
*If you cringe at paying five bucks for lunch, but won’t
blink at twenty or thirty spent on a riding lesson.
*If mucking stalls is more appealing to you than doing
housework.
*If you complain about aching after raking the yard, but will
never voice your back pain from the ride the previous day.
*If your room looks like a tornado hit, but you make sure
your horse’s stall is spotless.
*If every time you find a horse item, you buy it…
*If you buy horse earrings for your daughter, even though her ears aren’t
pierced.
*If your room is covered with horse posters, pictures of
you riding, horse calenders, and other assorted horse stuff
*If every time you go to watch a movie, you ask, “Are
there horses in it?”
*If every time you go to BLOCKBUSTER, you head for the
kid’s/family section because it’s most likely to have
horse videos.
*If you own three or more t-shirts with various horse
events, barns, or breeds on them.
*If you turn down a vacation to Florida because you don’t
want to miss your riding lesson… (the only way you’ll
give it up is if you’re promised a ride in Florida)
*If you find proof that there ARE in fact horses in
heaven.
*If you will read an entire magazine about horse
physiology, but hate biology.
*If when at the grocery store, you determine to buy
carrots and apples… for the horses at the barn.
*If you refuse to shovel snow, but gladly shovel stalls”

Hope this brought you some smiles, either for yourself or some horse lover that you know. Just remember, it’s all true.

Just WHINNNNNY and enjoy the ride!

All I have learned in my life, I have learned from my horse

• When in doubt, run far, far away.
• You can never have too many treats.
• Passing gas in public is nothing to be ashamed of.
• New shoes are an absolute necessity every 6 weeks.
• Ignore cues. They’re just a prompt to do more work.
• Everyone loves a good, wet, slobbery kiss.
• Never run when you can jog. Never jog when you can walk. And never walk when you can stand still.
• Heaven is eating at least 10 hours a day… and then sleeping the rest.
• Eat plenty of roughage.
• Great legs and a nice rear will get you anywhere. Big, brown eyes help too.
• When you want your way, stomp hard on the nearest foot.
• In times of crisis, take a poop.
• Act dumb when faced with a task you don’t want to do.
• Follow the herd. That way, you can’t be singled out to take the blame.
• A swift kick in the butt will get anyone’s attention.
• Love those who love you back, especially if they have something good to eat.
All I need to know in life I learned from my horse:

Just be the WHINNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNY!!
