I think that is probably how most of us feel, we just like our horses,
warts and all.
Who says "You can say anything you want about my spouse or my daughter, but
one bad word about my horse and you just got yourself a fight."
Truer words were never spoken. Guess what it boils down to is that there
aren't any perfect horses and it there were, how boring! Seriously, their
attributes must outweigh their faults.
I had a mare who was a witch to handle on the ground but abolutely
wonderful once you were mounted. I just had to learn to put up with her
idiosyncrasies. Really, I've never ridden a better horse. At the risk of
starting a war-- maybe it's mares???? Just kidding folks!!
Don't have kids except ones with fur and don't you badmouth them!
