Spurs and underwear?…weddings…Walmart…Your stories have mine beat!

These stories were shared after yesterdays post…I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

Cowboy boot and spur

I never thought twice about wearing my barn clothes to down… one day while grocery shopping I noticed quite a few people staring at me but figured it was the spurs. I was close… on my dash though my (messy) bedroom before heading to the store I snagged a pair of underpants on my spurs and were dragging them through the store….-Kim V

Royal Canadian Mounted Police

I love the spur stories – here’s one I’ll share. I am a veteran of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. My wife and I were married in 1968. I wore my “Service Order #1″ which is the red serge, breeks, boots and spurs, to the wedding – standard procedure. During the ceremony I stood at attention with my heels together and toes apart – normal military “at attention” position. By accident, I crossed my spurs – didn’t realize that had happened until I stepped off after saying “I do”. Fell flat on my face in front of my bride, the guests, the preacher, and 31 other Mounties. Highly embarrassing, but on the up side, we’re been married now for almost 46 years! -Ross M

alfalfa cubes

After a fun morning playing with my mare and her filly with alfalfa cubes, I ran to Walmart (of all places) for A few groceries.I looked like a hobo and smelled like a barn (filly spit) I had put cash in my pocket and when I paid the cashier loose alfalfa (from the cubes) fell on the counter…I apologized but the clerk madly swept up the bits of alfalfa and stated in a panic, “baby your bag done broke” “OMG no…it really is alfalfa,” I insisted. She winked and tried to give me the loose hay back…I left the store quickly and never went back. -Marj G.

    I went to the grocery store after working with our horses and was of course covered in hay with crap all over my boots. I headed through the till and could seriously smell the poo and must have looked embarrassed because she just laughed and told me, “That’s ok. I miss the smell of the farm.” I smiled at her and booked it out of there.

    I’ve had the”hay in my pocket” incident happen to me before… funny how non-horse people instantly jump to “that” conclusion! LMAO!
