    bartenders are known for their ability to listen to the problems of their customers. horses have a "long" face, but the long face is an idiom for a "sad face", so the bartender is indicating that he wants to listen to the problems of the guest, even when its a horse.
    If some one has a long face it means they are upset or sad, and the satement is a joke because a horse already has a long face.

    haha..mfcharlyb,my thumbs up! I've been laughing so-o-o long!
