Order Your Horse Today

This popped up on my FB last night and I thought it was pretty funny. It was made in 2013 I believe. I snagged this from The Idea of Order, so please go check them out.

I did both Gemmie and Eeyore on the same form: Gem is in black and Eeyore in blue. Let's see how I'd place my order to end up with these two goofs. 


Starting out, both are pretty cheap being basic colors and breeds. I didn't list Eeyore as an Appy because he only has a couple spots on one butt cheek (the rest being on his brain) but even if he was Appy in color he'd be basic.


Now they start to differentiate. Eeyore would get an up charge based on being sensitive but sane. Gemmie though...maybe she should have gotten a discount for being "rear on fire" :) Gem does catch up to Eeyore though when it comes to soundness. She never took a lame step and could go barefoot on the hardest rocky trail. Eeyore though...I had a time choosing between moderately sound and mostly lame. I mean...when he isn't injuring himself he is perfectly sound however he has been lame 50% of the time I've had him sooo....


Right now both of them have a 10% up charge. Level of training was hard for me. Gem is a beast on trail but really not trained per say so she got down graded. Eeyore though is basically moderately trained. I mean, I ran him start level last fall and didn't die.

Vices was pretty amusing. Gem has none. She is a saint. Add 10% Eeyore though? HAHAHAA! Also, Gem does technically have a pretty good endurance record, so 10% more for her. I don't count the one schooling show as a record for him.

Gem fits the "apathetic to your existence" perfectly. Eeyore? Hubby hates him for how dog like and pushy he can be, but I find it endearing. Mostly. Neither were expensive enough to need to hide the cost from Hubby and I could care less about bragging. No unicorns here. 

Its funny - according to this order form Gemmie would cost way more than Eeyore but in reality he was 3x as expensive as my all business little bay mare. I wouldn't trade either of them or the experiences they have given me for anything. 

What would your horse's order form look like?

  1. Oh what a fun idea! Stan would be super expensive compared to my other two because he's such a chill, solid dude who has been pretty damn sound his entire life and anyone can ride him.

    1. I did from today. Gem's would look a lot different from 10 years ago when she was a feral little beast.
