Doing what comes naturally

Doing what comes naturally.
In Andalucia where the sun shines all day, men in black boaters wearing tight trousers, smart waistcoats and hand made leather boots ride only stallions to ferias (fiestas) and behind perch their young pretty skirted women sideways on the rump of their long silky haired horses. Meanwhile the mares, kept for breeding, stay at home in pens along with the young stock in case powerful hormones cause mischief amongst the numerous stallions on parade.

In Britain where the grass grows green, women in black protective hats wearing tight breeches, silk scarves and long riding boots ride either mare or gelding and keep their men to perform the manly chores. It is custom to keep superior stallions for insemination only and colts are gelded as a matter of course. After all the syringe can always be filled with samples sent by post from the freeze bank.

It is the outbreaks of frenzied excitement doing (or even thinking about) what comes naturally which can breach the peace and causes pandemonium, especially in the Spring. Or was it just the effect of new, fresh, green grass!

But just who should leave the Garden - the stallion or the mare? After all, both parties eat apples.

thats cool. In australia only the toughest girls muck in with boys, wear jeans and boots (no helmet....shows how good of a rider you are) and a good woman is one who can ride alongside you all day, string up fences, cook tea for upwards of 12 men and still have time to love her man at night......

Barry, I would have to say "When in Rome. . ." (By the way, who stays home in Rome?)

You crack me up. I always enjoy your posts.

Thank you for the comments. You give me encouragement.
I sometimes ask myself whether I should deliberately write in an obtuse fashion in order to bring about a little humour in a contraversial discussion. With this thread I get the feeling that my message was lost in transmission.

Here I was saying that in Spain the dominant males believe that mares arouse passion in stallions which makes it difficult for the men to ride groups of uncastrated males at a fair
whereas in Britain,
the dominant females rush to geld all colts because they feel that just one stallion will bring about a riot at a local show.

Yet the problem is essentially the same - lust!.

But is right that in Spain the mares are all locked away
and in Britain all of the colts lose their tackle?
