B is for Barn Dirt - Turf-y's A-Z Rules of Horsemanship

Barn dirt is magnetic, but it is primarily attracted to non-barn apparel.

Blech! Been to the barn in your best duds? If you have, you get the point.

Best beware. It’s barely believable, but bound to happen.

Just stop at the stables for a quick visit or drop-off, and you’ll likely have to change your clothes again. You’ll likely have to shine your shoes and wash your hands. You may even need a full shower.

The Mane Point is participating again in the April A to Z blogging challenge, posting daily with alphabetical entries.

For this year's A-Z event, a month of posts will offer Turfy’s A-Z Rules of Horsemanship, with all due apologies to the original Murphy of Murphy's Law,  which basically said, "If anything can go wrong, it probably will."

Horse lovers may have heard some of these uncannily true, yet often ironic, statements in various forms in the past. Or not.

  1. Love horses -- to look at, anyway.
    Interesting to read one of the "rules" though I'd never go in a barn without the proper attire. :)
    Hope to read more during the Challenge.
