You Know You are an Equine Attorney When...

You receive a lot of emails about semen, and hardly any of them are from spammers.

"Honest horse seller" is an oxymoron, and you can prove it.

Recent horse purchasers often suffer from an agitating condition known as buyer's remorse.

Insurance and contracts are for pessimists. Accidents and lawsuits only happen to optimists.

No sold horse ever acted "that way" at home.

If you subpoena the vet records for a horse who has "never taken a lame step in his life," you'll find radiographs.

Your clients have a $20,000 show saddle, a $100,000 horse trailer and a $75,000 truck, but can't pay their bills.

Part of your professional qualifications are listed on the belt buckle you're wearing.
