You know you’re a horse person when…
- You will work in the barn all morning and not wash your hands when you come in for lunch
- You may have horse slobber in your hair and definitely have it on your jeans
- You even let your horse rub against your jeans to wipe their mouth
- You walk right through horse poop instead of going around it
- There are wood shavings in your pockets and at the bottom of your washing machine
- Your coffee table is covered with horse magazines and horsey catalogs
- Your checks have horse on them
- Your Christmas Card is of you and your Horse
- Your walls are covered with Horse Art!
Okay, so the last one is of course in reference to my horse art. In many cases some collectors of my horse art are not necessarily horse people but the initial first draw is most likely a horse person.
Typically a horse person will own some sort of horse art in their home AND have a reason to buy horse art as a gift for a friend. A horse person is still “that little kid inside them who was mesmerized by horses never really goes away. They might mature and develop over the years, work with dozens and dozens of horses – but one thing is for sure: their attention will suddenly shift to wherever there is a horse to be seen!”
My head certainly still turns at the slightest sighting of a horse. Since I don’t own a horse, I must seek out a horse person for my photo shoots. I can also usually spot a horse person when they enter into the art gallery.
