I'm sorry...I shouldn't laugh...but this one just
paints a hilarious picture
in my mind!  It's like a cartoon!

I'm in the process of having my heating and AC
system replaced and they're
relocating the AC condenser.  I've heard nothing
but horror stories about
what happens when the system isn't installed
properly and it's got my
stomach in an uproar.  I haven't been this nervous
since I first started
teaching and entered a classroom filled with first
graders.  Now all I can
think of is doom and gloom.  So, what better way to
pick up my spirits than
talk about horses.  But since I still have feelings
about doom and gloom I
thought I'd give a listing of some of the boners
I've pulled over the past
47 years and see how many of you can top them.

Started to drive off and realized the horse was still
tied to the outside
of the trailer.  Taught my horse to turn and face me
whenever I said whoa
and when she was doing as taught on a narrow trail
while I was behind her
she wound up falling over the edge into a deep ravine.
 Got my horse stuck
in quicksand.  Had my horse standing on the lawn
waiting to be shod and have
the sprinklers come on right underneath her (she wound
up jumping onto the
shoer and his tool stand).  Watched my horse run away
up a busy street and
disappear around a corner only to watch seconds later
as the horse came back
around the corner followed closely by a city bus. 
Tied my horse to a fence
rail and watched as he pulled the fence after him on
his way home.  Had a
horse step on a nail out in the pasture and after
several weeks in the barn
turned same horse back into the pasture without
checking for more nails and
have the horse step on another nail two days later. 
Approached a skittish
pony from the rear and basically was laid out flat,
face first, in the pee
pile.  Insisted I knew the directions to a ride and
wound up lost.  The
biggest boner of them all was passing up on a nice
weekend at home with my
horse and instead went camping in the snow!

OK.  Those are my big boners.  There are hundreds of
little boners, but
that should get the ball rolling.
