    Haha I think the thing I get the most annoyed about (and try not to) is when people learn you have a horse and ask if they can have their small child ride it. Lol I usually explain that my horse is basically just a giant, oversized baby and not safe for children. That usually stops them (even though he is quite safe to lead people around on).

    Can we have two?

    1.) Spring shedding

    2.) First mare heat of the season.

    Having my horse roll 5 seconds after turnout and undoing the 2 hrs of grooming I just did.

    Bakkir was grey so I had to bathe him and take pictures to see his beauty. Most days he was brown and green.

    People who declare they "used to ride a lot", as if they are very knowledgeable and it doesn't take much digging to find out all that riding was on Aunt Jane's pony, in the summers, before they were in first grade----------------

    When my BO puts my pony's halter on and leaves it on while he's turned out.

    If I wanted it on him, I'd leave it on him.

    But not worth fussing over, it's so he can catch him more easily to put his blanket on, which is a favor to me, so I can live with being minorly peeved about it.

    I'm too go-with-the-flow to really care about much.

    But non horse related PUT YOUR DARN SHOPPING BUGGIES AWAY YOU NEANDERTHALS

    Hmmmmm, I have a lot

    -Horse rolling after being groomed/bathed
    -People saying riding is easy or not a sport
    -Having my things messed with or not put up how I like them to be
    -Shedding season
    -When people don't warm up or cool down their horses at races

    That's all I've got right now:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    Horse experts you meet, especially in broading situations.

    Riders with no control of their mount in narrow trails, who want to stop and ask directions, and you have to be an assertive female, aka biatch, and tell them to get their horse's ass away from yours. And the the other rider gets all huffy.

    And another biggie: owners who will NOT call a vet, but would rather gleam vetting advice from random strangers on the internet.
