New Year's Resolutions for Horses

New Year's Resolutions for Horses

I CAN walk and poop at the same time. I can, I can, I can.

I will NOT stop and poop or urinate every time I pass the same spot in the arena.

I will NOT leave when my rider falls off.

My stall is NOT my litter box. When I have free access to my paddock, I will NOT go back inside to pee.

I will NOT roll in streams or try to roll when my human is on my back.

I will NOT leap over large nonexistent obstacles when the whim strikes.

I will NOT walk faster on the way home than I did on the way out.

I promise NOT to swish my tail while my human is cleaning my back feet.

I promise also NOT to choose that particular time to answer nature's call.

I will NOT bite my farrier's butt just because it is there.

I will NOT confuse my human's hair for really soft hay.

I will NOT wipe green slime down the back of my human's white shirt.

I will NOT blow my nose on my human.

I will NOT try to mooch goodies off every human within a 1 mile radius.

I will NOT lay totally flat out in my stall with my eyes glazed over and my legs straight out and pretend I can't hear my human frantically screaming, "Are you asleep?"

I will NOT chase the ponies into the electric fence to see if it is on.

I will promise NEVER to dump the wheelbarrow of manure over while a human is mucking my stall.

I will NOT grab my lead rope in my mouth and attempt to lead myself.

I will NOT have an attitude problem. I won't, I won't, I won't!

I will NOT pull my new shoes off the very next day just to prove that I can.

I am neither a beaver nor a carpenter. I promise I won't eat or remodel the barn or the new fences.

I WILL forgive my human for the very bad haircut, even though I look like a freak.

I accept that not every carrot is for me.

I will NOT jump in the air and turn 180 degrees every time I see a bicycle.

I will understand that bicycles are NOT carnivorous.

I will NOT shy at familiar objects just for fun.

I will NOT bite the butt of the horse in front of me during the trail ride just to say "Hi".

I WILL put my ears forward and cooperate when it comes to photos.
