We love our mares. They have lots of 'heart' and always give us 100%.

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

Interesting, because I prefer all female animals except when it comes to horses.

Geldings all the way for horses, and female animals for everything else. I've known some disgustingly piggy mares, so it's the individual animal and not the gender that makes them messy or not.

My dog is a female Great Dane, and I love that 'make me' attitude she has when she objects to something!

My now deceased gelding was a Queen Beeyotch, and I always said I'd put him up against the ****iest mare there was, and he'd probably win! Nasty, opinionated little ******, but I loved him with all my heart.

He'd try my last nerve, and then do something that brought out his bravery, loyalty, and willingness to follow me through hell.

An animal like that is priceless, and has little or nothing to do with gender.

i love them both, but mares are my favorite :) they are harder to ride, since they can get moody when they are in season, and stuff like that, so its even more of an accomplishment when they work really well for you. I also seem to click better with them, for some reason. but i love geldings, too, and ride them a lot also.
