It's taken me a while to figure out all of the funny little acronyms my daughters and friends use on their smart-phones and e-mails. Just when I had them all down, a list of equine-related texting code comes along.

Some of them are quite funny, so for what they are worth. . . but remember, texting while riding is just as uncool as texting while driving. (Just repeating it for the youngsters out there.)

Here they are:

OOH – out of hay
LAS – lost a shoe
FOMHL – fell off my horse laughing
FTC – forgot the carrots
MIHA – mare’s in heat, again
IPTI – I’ll pick up tennis instead
LWW – lesson went well
MSMBO – mud sucked my boot off
HSIH – horse snot in hair
HAO – hay all over
HIMB – hay in my BRA
PIHH – poop induced half halt
