EASY TO LOCATE.
She's either off on the horse or out in the barn.
UPHOLDS THE DOUBLE STANDARD.
Smooches with the most bewhiskered beast, but recoils when you need a shave.
OWNS ONE VACUUM CLEANER
and operates it exclusively in the barn.
A SOCIAL BUTTERFLY,
providing the party is given by another horsey wife. Falls asleep in her soup at all other functions.
Won't waste your money on permanents, facials, or manicures.
A CULINARY PERFECTIONIST.
Checks every section of hay for mold but doesn't blink when she petrifies your dinner in the microwave.
but never leaves lipstick on your collar, at worst, slight trace of chap stick.
EASY TO OUTFIT.
No need for embarrassing visits to uncomfortable little boutiques. You can find all she wears at your local tack store.
FEATURES A SELECTIVE SENSE OF SMELL.
Bitterly complains about your sticky-sweet cigar smoke while remaining
totally oblivious to the almost visible aroma of her barn boots drying
next to the heater.
UNMISTAKABLE IN A BATHING SUIT.
She's the one whose tan starts at the nose, ends at the neck, and picks up again at the wrists
A DEDICATED CLUB WOMAN,
as long as the words "horse" or "riding" appear in its name.
HAS YOUR LEISURE AT HEART.
Eliminates grass cutting by turning every square inch of lawn into pasture, which, in turn, converts itself into mud.
A MASTER AT MULTIPLICATION.
She starts with one horse, adds a companion, and if it's a mare, she breeds it.
KEEPS AN EAGLE EYE ON THE BUDGET.
Easily justifies spending six hundred dollars on h-o-r-s-e-s, but croaks when you blow ten on bowling.
AN ENGAGING CONVERSATIONALIST.
Can rattle on endlessly about training or breeding.
Knows that formal occasions call for clean boots.
A MOVING FORCE IN THE FAMILY.
House by house, she'll get you to move closer to horse country (and farther away from your job.)
EASY TO PLEASE.
A new wheelbarrow, custom boots, or even a folding hoof pick will win her heart forever.
Displays a minimum of six 8x10 color photos of the horse in the house,
and carries a crumpled snapshot of you (taken before you were married)
somewhere in the bottom of her purse.
SHOWS HER AFFECTION IN UNUSUAL WAYS.
If she pats you on the neck and says "you're a good boy," believe it or not, she loves you!
