A Horse is a Horse of course, of course!

 logo i heart faces horses 001  Joke Idea shamelessly stolen from my friend Drew

A champion jockey is about to enter an important race on a new horse. The horse's trainer meets him before the race and says, "All you have to remember with this horse is that every time you approach a jump, you have to shout, 'ALLLLEEE OOOP!' really loudly in the horse's ear. Providing you do that, you'll be fine."

The jockey thinks the trainer is mad but promises to shout the command. The race begins and they approach the first hurdle. The jockey ignores the trainer's ridiculous advice and the horse crashes straight through the center of the jump.

They carry on and approach the second hurdle. The jockey, somewhat embarrassed, whispers "Aleeee ooop" in the horse's ear. The same thing happens--the horse crashes straight through the center of the jump.

At the third hurdle, the jockey thinks, "It's no good, I'll have to do it," and yells, "ALLLEEE OOOP!" really loudly. Sure enough, the horse sails over the jump with no problems. This continues for the rest of the race, but due to the earlier problems the horse only finishes third.

The trainer is fuming and asks the jockey what went wrong. The jockey replies, "Nothing is wrong with me--it's this bloody horse. What is he--deaf or something?"

The trainer replies, "Deaf?? DEAF?? He's not deaf--he's BLIND!"

What is your favorite animal?

I have always had a thing for monkeys.

hehe... Totally love your picture... but that joke was too much. What a nice way to end my nite.

By the way... You are oh sooo kind commenting my picture.. such nice words you say (every time). You really know how to make a girl fill special. :)

Oh and as you saw... I love horses... :)

Jan said...

Cool shot!!!

Brooke said...

I love this shot! How cool that you captured three horses peeking their heads out all at once. And of course, you are a funny girl, but that goes without saying, doesn't it?

Mrs. Bird said...

Wonderful shot! I've seen an improvement in your photos over the weeks :) Good job!!

lifebythecreek said...

Ahhh.. Mrs. Bird is spot-on about the improvement, isn't she, Becky? {wink}. I love the whole post.. the picture really DOES remind me of Mr. Ed (I am old enough to have watched the ORIGINAL run of it, and as a horse fiend, it was a favorite of mine!). And the joke is hilarious!!!! omw... I needed that laugh. BIG hugs to you, my sweet friend..

homemakerchronicles said...

This is great! What a funny thought that these horses are poking their heads out of those little windows and "talking" at the passersby. Very creative picture!

I love puppies and kittens and baby goats.

Spencer L Casey said...

Ah, yes, monkeys are the bomb. Course I've never been around one, so I don't know at all what I'm talking about. Fun to watch though. :)

Love the joke as well. I'm going to share that with my son. Hardy har har.

Cheers,

I LOVE monkeys. I just visited my BF this past weekend. She's the one with the little marmoset. In fact, that's when we started blogging with each other. I think you left me a comment over a year ago when you saw initial pics of the cute little thing.

Julie Rivera Photography said...

I haven't heard (or read) a joke in a long time that makes sense...3 year olds can't tell jokes well at all...this one was very funny! And the picture is awesome! Really, my favorite so far!

Lyndsey said...

I love red barns, and I love the fact that you captured so much personality in each horse! It is almost as if the one on the right knows you are taking its picture!!! This is great, and your posts to go along with your pictures are so creative.

Michelle said...

That is such a great shot. Love the horse on the right. He certainly has something to say!

ukreal1 said...
