I have to agree. I'm not the hippy liberal tree hugging type, but it really bugs me when people use "cowboy" that way. Drives me nuts! Most true cowboys are great horsefolks. Argh.
OP - That's awful. Poor mare.
I have to agree on the quickest being the slowest. I heard somewhere (or read it) "Act like you've got all day to do it and it'll take 15 minutes. Act like you've got 15 minutes to do it and it'll take all day." Quite apt.
