    I've only met one mare who I adored, would have loved to have taken her home, but she was a fence wrecker and hated viciously other horses. She was a love bug with me though. I love my geldings. In life, I always had more boy "friends" than girl "friends" too....

    Well, I'm a guy and have 4 wonderful mares that I wouldn't trade for anything.

    I know some guys that prefer mares. I, personally, don't. I find it easier to deal with geldings and studs, even if the mare is sweet as pie. It just takes that one moment of refusal, you can push a gelding through it, but in my experience, you would have to fight a mare through the same ordeal.

    Mares are witches. Even the sweet ones have a hidden witch to them. And I say that having never been bucked by a mare. I've been bucked, crow hopped, and dumped by geldings. But only a mare has ever outright fought me and refused to move forward for me. Ill take bucking over running backwards any day. :)

    Well, see I like mares exactly for their spark and personality. I find that these easy going geldings everyone lauds are boring and not really my speed. Course I am a girl too, and have no problem proving that I am the "lead mare" and my way is the only way and that I can be trusted to lead. Studs are another challenge all together, and are exciting in their own way. I suppose it doesn't matter too terrible much, but most of my favorite horses/ponies have been mares.

    When I bought my horse Faith, her breeder, Joe Goodenow, was a total mare lover. He said he preferred mares over geldings because they cared more and they would try harder.

    I love mares for the same reason.

    However everybody I know do not really like mares....At my barn that I'm currently at has about......25ish horses I think...? Out of those horses there are only 4 mares (well 3 mares 1 filly).
