Horse Trading

Backstory: My mom is thinking of getting another horse for my little sister (G), and I asked her what was wrong with the one she has now (Foxy).
Mom: This is a hunt horse we may get for G
Me: Ooooh, pretty! But what about Foxy???
Mom: Yeah-well……we may end up with a yard ornament.
Me: Haha, what?? What’s wrong with Foxy?
Mom: She’s a cranky bitch when she has her period (estrus (sp)) -she may or may not want to be ridden;  It’s her choice.  There’s an old saying about horses:  you can tell a gelding to do something, you can ask a stallion to do something, but you will discuss your options with a mare.

      So true about mares, but if you can ride her, you can ride anything.

      Wow- my favorite conversation EVER! And so true! I have a mare too, but she’s always like that, not just during heat =) I love her to death!

      Man, this horse sounds an awful lot like a lot of women I know!! Funny though. Thanks for the advice, if I ever get a horse you can bet it wont be a mare.

      I have to third this. My mare had a hand in making my teenage years miserable.

      certainly like your web-site but you have to take a look at the spelling on quite a
      few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very bothersome to inform
      the reality however I will certainly come again again.

      Paragraph writing is also a fun, if you be acquainted with then you can write or else it is complicated to write.
