In a press release today, the National Institute of Health has announced the discovery of a potentially dangerous substance in the hair of horses.

This substance, called “amo-bacter equuii” has been linked with the following symptoms in female humans:

  • Reluctance to cook
  • Reluctance to perform housework
  • Reluctance to wear anything but boots
  • Reluctance to work except in support of a horse
  • Physical craving for contact with horses
  • Reluctance to spend money on home or car repairs until after “baby” has trimmed hooves, pad, blanket, tack, grain, hay & supplements.
  • Usually results in long hours away from home and exhaustion which may lead to a loss of physical contact with other humans.
  • Thought to be addictive, driving the need for additional sources – this may lead to a “herd mentality” or, like the potato chip commercial, “you can’t have just one”.

Beware! if you come in contact with a female human affected by this substance be prepared to talk about horses for hours on end. This was a public service announcement.
