Potential Danger of Horse Hair...This is a public service announcement ...
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 "amobacter equuii" has been linked with the following symptoms in females:
- Reluctance to cook, clean or do housework.
- Reluctance to wear make-up, good clothes or heels.
- Reluctance to spend money on home or car repairs until after "baby has new shoes, pad, blanket, tack, grain, hay & supplements".
- "Amobacter equuii" usually results in long hours away from home and exhaustion which may lead to a loss of physical contact with other humans (especially husbands).
- "Amobacter equuii" is 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 infected by this substance, be prepared to talk about horses for hours.
"Amobacter equuii" is usually found in females but can occasionally infect males as well.
My horsey friends love this important information as they are happy that they
finally have an diagnosis.
Here is one of my big ponies that gave me Amobactor equuii and caused me to
drive 110 miles yesterday and got an expensive speeding ticket...
