It Take to Change a Lightbulb?
from Terry Ciotti-Gallo
Warmblood: Light bulb? What light bulb?
Any Foal: Ah, come on mom...the sun is shining, the day is young, we've got our whole lives ahead of us, and you're inside worrying about a
stupid burned-out light bulb?
Thoroughbred: Just one. And he'll rewire the whole barn.
Shetland Pony: I can't reach the stupid lamp.
Saddlebred: Sorry, I just had my hooves and mane done.
Morgan: Oh, oh, me, me! Pleeease let me change the light bulb! Can I, can I? I promise I won't
break this one!
Quarter Horse: I'd be happy to help you with that! I can fit it in
between cutting and Hunter Under Saddle. Oh, wait...I have trail at noon and Western Pleasure class at 2:00. Let's see...no, no, I have Pleasure
Driving at 4:30 and Reining at 6:00. Then, the trainer needs me for a lesson with a new Walk-Jogger tonight at 8:00. I know: Just leave it by my
stall and I'll do it at 4:00 am, just before my bath for the Halter class.
Trakhener: Light bulb? Light bulb? That thing I just ate was a light
Holsteiner: How DARE that light bulb burn out! How DARE you ask me to change it!! OH!! (Flouncing off)
Appaloosa: No, don't change it! If it's dark, maybe no one will see me raiding the feed room.
Andalusian: Let the maid do it. That's what we pay the help for.
Clydesdale: Och, and ye'll just be usin' up the 'lectricity, ye'
will, better tae use a wee bit of candle... better yet tae not waste either and just gae tae sleep when the sun gaes doon...'lectricity is verra
Arabian: (fidgeting all the while) Lights? Lights? Where? Do you want me to pose? This is my good side...no, wait, let me get my mane
straight...no, wait, this angle is all wrong. No wait, maybe this is my good
side. Do you want dramatic...or bold..or maybe sensitive...
Shire: (Yawn) Who cares?
