I agree with most on here...it's totally personal preference AND each horse has his or her own individual personality too. So you can't really say that "all Arabs are hot" or "all QH's are laid back" - they're not! It all depends on the horse...now, that's not to say that certain characteristics aren't more prevelant in some breeds than others, but still, it depends on the individual horse regardless.
Personally, I also get annoyed when people knock on gender too...I mean yes, mares in season can be stubborn and tough to deal with sometimes depending on the mare, but I just hate hearing things from people like "Oh God I would NEVER own a MARE!" kinda makes you wanna say "ok well that's nice, thanks for sharing! But I DO own a mare, so..."
I know everyone has personal preference, but it kinda is almost insulting when you hear comments like that, you know what I mean? Anyone else have that experience??
