Yea it is. The mare is no doubt a nice mare. But she's lazy. I work cows and run barrels... and she'd rather poke along. So I don't ride her but maybe once a month if that. Where I ride my other other 2, 3-4 times a week. And this little colt is bred to run. So he will be a more fitting horse for my needs.
Many people have sighed for the 'good old days' and regretted the 'passing of the horse,' but today, when only those who like horses own them, it is a far better time for horses. ~C.W. Anderson
