Now that is a cute pic!

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

bsms - I am in love with your daughter's gelding!! He is too cute!

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

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.

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

I know some guys that prefer mares. I, personally, dont. 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. Ive 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. :)

Think of it not as a failure but as a success in how not to do it.

Don't look in a horses mouth for a gift.

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).

For the wretched of the earth there is a flame that never dies.
Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.
