^^^I'm with sarahver! I prefer stallions to either, but not suggesting that by any means!!!! I have only owned a couple of mares over the years that had the "marish" attitude in season. As a breeder I also like that when their career is over they have the option to be a broodmare, provided she is conformationally correct & successful in her discipline.
Even though I vote mare, I do enjoy geldings. We are looking for one for my hubby to trail ride. My daughter's pony is a gelding and he is a total doll.
Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
