Re: [RC] age for starting youngsters - Carla Richardson

I'm curious about the color legend also.  I once had a book (it got lost somewhere along the way) about Arabians; in it was a quote, a passage from the Koran (supposedly) about color in Arabian horses.  I remember that it claimed red horses were the fastest, and bays the strongest.  Something about "if you hear that a bay horse has fallen off a mountain and is alright, you can believe it is true" because the bay horse is so strong.  I remembered that passage because I had a bay horse <G>.  It also made me think about Secretariat and Man o' War, both red horses, and both fast horses.
I can't remember what it said about grays and white horses, except it seemed like the white horse was considered very special.  I'd love to hear what your book says, Angie.
