Losing them.

Everything else is just a learning experience.

Agreed. At my age, I actually take comfort that our mares will probably outlive me and my wife, and that we've arranged for their care if/when something happens to us.

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

I don't like mud either.

And being wise, like knowing which battles you can win and admitting to the ones you can't.
