Nerdy For Horses

It was recently brought to my attention that I am a nerd.

Definition-Nerd is a term that refers to an intelligent but single-minded person obsessed with a nonsocial hobby or pursuit. Nerds are generally considered to be awkward, shy and/or unattractive by most,  gains pleasure from amassing large quantities of knowledge about subjects often too detailed or complicated for most other people to be bothered with.  Thus, a nerd is often excluded from physical activity and considered a loner by others, or will tend to associate with a small group of like-minded people.

Impossible. Its not like I play World of Warcraft or anything. Oh wait...

I have like 1000 friends on FB. I do college people things like wear high heels and go out. My hair is always perfect and I never do it. I make random friends by putting my phone number on cars (enter new man interest). I might be awkward, but its hilarious. Maybe I study a bit...but I'm no nerd.

My new man interest though showed me that I am indeed, a nerd....

...nerdy for horses. Which apparently guys find sexy nowadays? Who frecking knew.

But he is right. I pondered about this for approx. 3 minutes and came up with a list (which only solidifies his claim further).

Specific Explanations for Why I am Indeed, a Nerd
-general extreme excitement about horse races on ESPN/ recall stats about racehorses like its common knowledge
-recall stats about major big time sporthorse stallions like its common knowledge
-watching every horse movie, wether or not it is excellent...Derby Stallion...Secretariat...
-owning every horsey movie pretty much ever made
-loudly voicing opinions to no one in particular about horsey Youtube videos (my voice may or may not get nasally and geeky)
-reciting book definitions of ailments, body parts, tack or sports when asked simple questions, like "what color is that horse?" or "What is a handicap race?" (in the same geeky voice)
-continue to spew word vomit till other person shifts nervously in seat and tries to make hasty exit
-57 horse books on my shelf
-trophies in my room, flaunting my semi-successes
-txt pictures of my horse making stupid faces to non horse friends *eye rolls*
-txt pictures of my horse making stupid faces to horse friends
-txt pictures of new tack to other tack whore friends
-Epic shrine dedicated to previous and current ponyfaces
-3 mag subscriptions..diligently poured over
-Hating Fuglyblog and reading every. single. comment.
-researching throughout 4 different tack stores for the best value
-new tack is like wait, better than.
-sport heroes include Karen O'Conner and Darren Chiacchia, not Babe Ruth or Tim Tebow
-immediately judging a rider/ voicing opinion to nearest person, wether or not I know them/they are a horse person or not
-ditto for horse, but insert words like, F-ing gorgeous, fugly, psycho or drugged up the ass
-drawing horses constantly...this is probably the most nerdy thing I do
-wearing riding clothes to school and finding it normal
-fantazing about trucks and trailers

Its true. I am a horse nerd. I didnt realize it until now.

But its ok.

Speaking of nerdy things like drawing horses so much it becomes weird. I drew this on a study break. Yay.

Go, my friends, be nerdy with me :D


  1. my ex fiance called me a horsedork. i didn't stick around but the name sure did ;) cheers fellow horse nerd!

    also you need to add horse tattoo to your list!

  2. Wow... minus the racehorse thing, this is me. (I know, I love tbs and don't care at all about racing. Weird.)

    Well, and I don't wear high heels and I never go out. Ha! My nerdiness is a more aggressive type than yours. Soon even the blog will diminish... I will speak in nickers... my toenails will harden and enlarge into hooves... IT'S OOOOOVER!!!!

  3. N.E.R.D
    Nuts for Equine Random Days.
    Yup..I'm an obsessed nerd too.

  4. Hahahahaha I'm also a nerd ;) I never EVER wear high heels though... I kinda am already 6'1". I'd say I'm pretty awkward too... And I really don't go out all that often because AP World takes up way too my of my time. :P Hahaha

    Awesome drawing!

  5. Wow that picture is awesome. I can't believe you drew it in a study break. Green with envy hehe.

    Yep, I'm a horse nerd too, and happy to be. :D I was spouting of color genetics terms earlier until someone finally spoke up and said they had no clue what I was talking about! How can that be?? I thought everyone knew about equine color genetics hehe. ;)

    I don't think I fit nearly all of the things in your list, but I'm sure I have my own nerdy quirks to add lol. I like Kristen's Nuts for Equine Random Days. Awesome!
