Writer on a Horse
And a Dog

The world looks better from the back of a horse and the roads of life are easier with a good dog beside you.

You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear

My grandmother said that all the time... what does it mean anyway. Have you ever thought about all the unclear sayings we say???

Raining cats and dogs.
He looks like he's been rode hard and put up wet
Useless as teats on a boar pig
Nobody will ever notice it on a galloping horse
He's two bricks short of a load
He ain't got a pot to pee in Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil
The guilty dog barks the loudest
That's finer than frog's hair
He couldn't hit the broad side of a barn
She's about as useful as buttons on a dishrag
She slapped him like a red-headed stepchild
you can catch more files with honey than with vinegar
He's steal the bridle off a nightmare
He's tougher than a two dollar steak
He's as mad as a wet hen
Sober as a judge
That's as scarce as hen's teeth
If wishes were horses, beggars would ride

I like this one:
He was more nervous than a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs!
