So here are some of mine:

1) 1st time on cow ever for both of us :)
2) Trail riding (judged trail ride with obstacles)
3) Switched to english this year (hopefully dressage)
He is a cutie! No offense but that cow doesn't look the slightest bit worried about you guys

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

I think those team penning cows are SO used to everything they don't care much till you get very very close. I rode her in mid of bunch to move them out of pen and they didn't want to move till she pinned her ears and bared her teeth at them. BTW even though she was bred for ranch work she didn't like that much - she's too of princess for the cow smell!

Oh plese, please...bring the troll back. This thread has been keeping me awake during late night baby feedings. I giggled out loud a time or two.
I told my two QH's about this thread and they thought it was hillarious. My filly snorted - truely! Whether out of distain or out of the sheer sillyness of the whole thing remains to be seen. Ahhh...cheap entertainment.

People want QH's because they are an all-around horse! They can do pretty much anything you ask them to do.... not just racing! They've been used for anything and everything... you name it they've probably done it!

theyre wonderfully tempered and generally substantial enough for adults to ride. it seems like you have something against them?

I'm not a huge fan of QH, but my first pony was one and she was gorgeous! Placed in every hack class I ever took her in (usually first) and always placed well in jumping. She was wonderfully athletic as well. Here are some pictures sent by the new owner:

I probably would not buy another one, since I am a hunter/eq rider, but I do think QHs excel at some things. My mom recently bought an appendix that is an awesome teacher (and a cute little jumper). He's been great at teaching my mom to jump and being a fantastic local level show horse. Here he is:

And when my horse had lyme disease I showed a nice large pony that was a great children's large pony. She's been to zone finals twice (invited more times then that) and has taught numerous kids to ride:

Why would anyone own a Quarter Horse. That is a really good question...

I am sure the other one is thankful that you spelled it incorrectly so they could have the name they wanted.
