Moms and Dads, have you ever heard of Equine High-Ya disease?
I know I’d never heard of it until recently.
They were playing horsies one evening with those cute Melissa & Doug horses and a lovely wooden barn. It made my heart glow to see my 6’2″ husband lounging on the floor with his horsie beside my daughter with her horsies.
“Daddy,” said our eight-year-old. “My horses have High-Ya disease.”
“Oh, no,” he replied. “Which ones?”
“All of them,” she answered. That’s right folks. Three out of three Melissa & Doug horsies had the dreaded High-Ya disease! It was getting serious.
“What is High-Ya disease?” my husband probed.
Our daughter grabbed two horses and crashed one on top another. “HIGH YA!” she screamed as the horse on top karate chopped the horse on the bottom.
The third horse, also suffering from High-Ya disease, jumped into the fray. “HIGH YA!” he shouted.
Soon, all three horsies were consumed by HIGH-YA disease, jumping on one another and karate chopping each other until the bitter end.
I said bitter end, folks. High-Ya disease is fatal. Sniff!
When I heard about the disease, I admit it: I laughed until I cried!
Moms and Dads, may your horsies be spared from High-Ya disease.
