QUICK, what should I do with the five that we have on our farm right now?! Dig a big hole? Maybe let them out on the highway?
Lolz! I didn't know I hated mine either. Guess I can stop buying the more expensive feed, and the supplements for healthy digestion, and those heavy lined blankets to make up for his little peach fuzz winter coat, and I can quit paying the good farrier who knows the difference between a quarter horse hoof and a thoroughbred hoof... I don't know why I didn't see it before. Maybe I was blinded by cuddles and and goofy antics and love and devotion...
The other funny thing is, I rode quarter horses for the first 4 years of my riding career. When I started taking lessons, my instructor's lesson horse was... An Arab.
Now, the most docile, intelligent, loyal horse I have ever been around is... my thoroughbred, a 6 year old OTTB at that!
AND! The only horse that has every a) run me over, b) bit me, and c) has thrown me just out of pure, evil spite, was... a quarter!
But still, I guess I'll have to send mine packing. I'd hate to go against the community here. Back to the track, Riley!
