They Shoot Humans, Don’t They? Well, Not Exactly …

Ever wonder what horses talk about when they gather around the daily oats?

Rochelle knows … and she took this picture here to prove it.




The horses, Harry, Lightning and Hurricane gathered at the trough.

“So, that stupid Johnny is riding you today, huh?”

Hurricane buried his face in the feed.  “One more comment that kid makes about my horse-hood  and I’m going to …”

Lightning and Harry continued eating.  “You won’t do anything.  Here he comes.”

Johnny approached with his saddle.  He noticed Hurricane’s prominent feature.  “I see  tonight you’re gonna put Buttercup’s fire out with that hose you got.”

Hurricane raised tail and peed a long, green river all over Johnny.  “Hers ain’t the only fire I’m putting out tonight, you little bastard!”

    The sting is under the tail. Made me grin, Kent.

  2. wmqcolby says:

    Thanks, Sandra. I can’t believe I wrote something like this. I was pretty tired and thought, ah, what the heck.

    Hilarious, Kent. Initially, I thought of having the horses gossip among themselves when I saw this photo–then went another crazy direction instead. Loved you take on it. Mine would have not been this funny.

    • wmqcolby says:

      You’re right … it would have been FUNNIER. Thanks for the compliment. As for the idea of horses conversation, it was something I had to kind of force out.

      BTW, “Vero” just e-mailed me saying the party’s at your page this week. We’re going back to see more comments. This is fun! You wrote a hilarious piece … and the story was quite good, too. 😉

      • rgayer55 says:

        Thank you. CE playing along really brought the party to life. The most comments I’ve ever had on one post was 70. It looks like we’ll break that record this week.

        That’s GREAT, Russell! It helps the followings and adds more people to the blog, meaning more exposure.
        Come ooooon, BIG money! Triple digits this weekend. Shoot the works! 😀

    Ha, that’ll learn him! Nice one 🙂

  5. jellico84 says:

    Laughter ensues! Nice little horsey revenge…

  6. Dear Cuzzin Notnek,

    Why do I hear Mr. Ed’s voice. Poetic justice. You upped the bar on anthropomorphic stories. Five out of five shtooping horsies.



  7. wmqcolby says:

    Neigh. “Shtooping horses,” huh? Is that like Humphrey Bogart’s camels whenever exposition rears its ugly head?

    Smiled then read it aloud to a elderly friend, he nearly fell out of his chair laughing.

  9. wmqcolby says:

    With that, I’m flattered. Thanks, Mike. 😀

  10. I knew they talked about us like that! That’s why I don’t keep a full stable of prize-winning horses. Funny piece!

  11. ceayr says:

    I am impressed by Hurricane.
    He’d probably be a great neighbour.

  12. plaridel says:

    he sure was fully loaded. 🙂

  13. LOLOL …. I can’t believe what I just read. I’m so glad I had put my wine down before I read this or my computer would be ruined. SUPER FUNNY … !!! I love this type of writing.
    Isadora 😎

  14. wmqcolby says:

    You do? I’m sorry! 😀
    No matter, glad you enjoyed it, Iz. 😉

  15. Dahlia says:

    This was great fun! 😀

  16. wmqcolby says:

    Thanks, Dahlia. Glad you liked it.

  17. gahlearner says:

    This is too funny. That’ll teach Johnny making comments about horsehood. Great writing.

  18. wmqcolby says:

    Hahaha! Thanks, Gabi. I guess I wrote how I felt about something completely different and made Hurricane say it for me. 😀

  19. Horse-hood ha… that made me smile… the revenge made me laugh

    • wmqcolby says:

      My dad read this and he about busted a gut laughing so hard. It wasn’t from the ending, but from the word “horse-hood.” I never saw him laugh so hard for so long!

  20. Horses get tired of teasing too, I imagine. Thanks for the grin.

  21. Horsehood is a great word! This really made me laugh. Nice one. 🙂

    • wmqcolby says:

      Thanks, Clalre. I told Bjorn that when my dad read that, he just lost it! He couldn’t stop laughing. Seems this was an “older people’s” type story. 😀

  22. That’s so, so funny :D. Especially as when a horse pees, it’s like a fireman’s hose turned on full, so the putting out of green fire is most apt.

  23. wmqcolby says:

    Oh, yes. Yes, yes. My mom’s family are farmers but they didn’t have horses. I have seen them do their business … stay FAR away! 😀

  24. Michael Wynn says:

    This week’s laugh out loud moment. Well done

  25. wmqcolby says:

    Thanks, Mike. That’s a compliment for sure. I’ll take it home!

  26. Oh my….I guess he told him! lol

  27. Sometimes revenge is a dish best served … in steaming abundance?
    Loved it Kent

  28. wmqcolby says:

    Hahahahahaha! Siobhan, you really hit the nail on the head. Or on the horseshoe.

  29. Clever and funny, Kent! As a horse lover and rider, I’ve often wondered what they’re really thinking! Glad I’ve never been peed on though!

  30. I didn’t know horses could be so blunt
