Murphy's Horse Laws

Murphy's horse laws- Jeremiah sent me this, thought it was funny!
*If you do a thorough check of your trailer before hauling, your truck will break down
*There is no such thing as a sterile barn cat No one ever notices how you ride until you fall off
*The least useful horse in your barn will eat the most, require shoes every four weeks and need the vet at least once a month
*A horse's misbehavior will be in direct proportion to the number of people who are watching
*If you're wondering if you left the water on in the barn, you did
*If you're wondering if you latched the pasture gate, you didn't
*Hoof picks migrate
*Tack you hate never wears out
*Blankets you hate cannot be destroyed
*Horses you hate cannot be sold and will outlive you
*Clipper blades will become dull only when the horse is half finished
*Clipper motors will quit only when you have the horse's head left to trim
*If you approach within 50 feet of the barn in your "street clothes", you will get dirty
*You can't push a horse on a lunge line
*If a horse is advertised "under $5,000" you can bet he isn't $2,500
*The number of horses you own increases according to the number of stalls in your barn
* An uncomplicated horse can be ruined with enough schooling
*You can't run a barn without baling twine
*Wind velocity increases in direct proportion to how well your hat fits
*There is no such thing as the "right feed"
*If you fall off, you will land on the site of your most recent injury
* If you're winning, quit.
