"I want a horse with heart above all other.
I don't care if he's Smart Little Lena's full brother.
Or just how much his grandmother won,
Or whether he's roan, palomino, or dun.
But give me a horse with some grit and some try,
And some heart and some guts
And that's the one I'll buy." - Monte Baker
He has a lot of good ones lol
I also like "Take the time it takes, so that it takes less time." and (just for a giggle) "When people get too old to be bad examples, they sit on a porch and give out bad advice."
Some of my other favorites are;
"Horses stay the same from the day they are born until the day they die - they only change from the way people treat them." ~Tome Smith, trainer of Seabiscuit.
And as my signature sayd; "If a horse fails to do something, that is because he was not trained to do it. If a horse fails to do something properly, that is because he was not trained properly." ~Alexander Nevzarov
