The Idea of Order: Equine Shower Thoughts

They must have them… sort of…

Presented by:

So, for those unfamiliar with what a shower thought is, feel free to hit up Reddit. A brief, and perhaps telling, example would be the following exchange with The Husband:

Me: “What if the crazy people who hear voices aren’t *really* crazy but are just tuned into a different dimension or something that we don’t hear?”
Husband: “……”
Me: “What? I’m not saying they’re *NOT* crazy….just…I dunno, maybe they aren’t?….”
Husband: *Slowly walks away*

So, in that vein, I wonder if our horses have “Shower Thoughts” about us…(I am sure this in itself is somewhat metaphysical).

Go Riding! 

Morgane Schmidt Gabriel is a 34-year-old teacher/artist/dressage trainer/show announcer/ who still hasn’t quite decided what she wants to be when she grows up. A native Floridian, she now lives in Reno, NV, where she’s been able to confirm her suspicion that snow is utterly worthless. Though she has run the gamut of equestrian disciplines, her favorite is dressage. She was recently able to complete her USDF bronze and silver medals and is currently working on her gold. Generally speaking her life is largely ruled by Woody, a 14.2 hand beastly quarter horse, Willie, a now beastly 7-year-old Dutch gelding, and Stormy, her friend’s nearly all white paint gelding with a penchant for finding every mud hole and pee spot in existence.
