Good Things About Husbands:
Husbands are less expensive to shoe.
Feeding a husband doesn’t require anything that even mildly compares with the hassle of putting up hay.
A lame husband can still work.
A husband with a belly-ache doesn’t have to be walked.
Husbands don’t try to scratch their heads on your back.
They’re better able to understand puns.
If they’re playing hard to catch you *may* be able to run them down on foot.
They know their name.
They pay their own bills.
They apologize when they step on your toes.
They seldom refuse to get in the vehicle.
They don’t panic, yelling and running all through the house when you leave them alone. (unless you left the kids too)
For a nominal fee you can hire someone else to clip them.
Men rarely pee in the middle of the bed day in and day out.
Men don’t usually trample their dinner into their beds, or eat the bedding.
You don’t have to bolt the door every time you leave them for a few minutes
to stop them running back to their friends.
The Horse’s Advantage:
If they don’t work out you can sell them.
They don’t come with in-laws.
You don’t have to worry about your children looking like them.
You never have to iron their saddle pads.
If you get too fat for one you can shop for a bigger one.
They smell good when they sweat.
You can repair their “clothes” with duct tape.
It’s possible to keep them from “jumping the fence”.
You can force them to stay in good physical condition…with a whip if necessary.
They don’t want their turn at the computer.
They turn white with age, but not bald.
They learn to accept restraint.
They don’t care what you look like, as long as you have a carrot.
Your horse will not think a new pair of shoes every month is excessive
Your horse will be glad of the company if you go shopping for another one, and your friends will approve of you keeping more than one, as this is more natural.
