What?! No way...
Granted it would be a nice feeling knowing that people like taking photos of my horse but I don't want that much attention drawn to her. Especially with all the thieving that has been going on around the area..and other shady activities

You have to learn how to fall before you can learn how to ride~

Yup. She's a local here, with property close to all the tourist traps. So she breeds her 4 mares EVERY year to her stud, throws them in the front pasture by the highway, and basically just had them as lawn ornaments

She also never Sells the babies. She raises them up and breeds them and sells the mares/geldings/studs etc she doesn't want to a local tribe that buys horse meat.

*Insert something witty*

The entire concept of "breeding to calm a mare" just kills me. Really, they have a horse that is so difficult that they are asking for ways to calm her, and someone thinks passing that trait on is a good idea?

There's also the common mare that isn't broke to ride or the owners just don't have the time to ride the horse, so what else to do with a mare I don't ride... breed her, then she'll be doing something useful...

And the tried and true favorite... she's pretty...
