I dont', cause I don't hold on long enoguh to get it broke- I play violin,
and even thoguh Aly the stud has gotten loose from me at rides, he never
trieed to mount any mares- I remember at Carolina he got goosed by a dog,
dumped me and took off down the trail at a full gallop- I was pretty much in
despair, until the lady infront of me came back with Aly in tow on her big
Standardbred... It was a sight- he was just ponying along like he was at the
track! SHe asked me if this was mine, and I said yes, and then I said, did
you know he' s a stallion? And all she said was, well, he's pretty nice...
He was keeping up to her for quite a ways... I thanked her BIG TIME. His
back hurt by the end of the ride cause of the spectacular twist he did when
he dumped me, but he passed his completion (it was only thirrty mile and
this was in the last 5)
