The Rules of Horse Grooming According to Zoey
Zoey: Gramma, can you help me put barretts in my horse's hair?
Gramma: Horses don't wear barretts.
Zoey: (authoritatively) This one does.
While Zed and Gramma were discussing the finer points of horse grooming...Gramma from experience, Zoey from her imagination...the topic of barrets in horses manes came up and Zed quickly set her Gramma straight. Although it may not be oh-so typical to use hair barrettes in a horse's mane, as far as Zo is concerned, its standard practice. Just like wearing your toque at the kitchen table. Take that rule book.
