I don't really like the racing industry because of the sheer number of horses that are churned out each year and are forced to find a home on the secondary market because they failed on the track.

However, I admire Thoroughbreds and would love to have a couple of old retired broodmares as lawn mowers. I melt at the sight of a bay or chestnut with a big blaze and stockings.

Blood bay, my favorite. I love that striking contrast with the bold red and the black points. I'm also a sucker for horses with stockings or socks.

Paddy was one of the two new goldfish, he wasn't on the website yet. I don't normally talk about new fish for a while, superstitious, but it's not helping lately.

There's risk with every horse sport. There are some horses that are a risk to themselves! I really dont dislike any horse sport. Especially when the horse clearly loves the sport. But some people can only see the negatives.

If they're not respected or treated poorly, then yes, they will be nasty. Any horse will be nasty when treated as such.

I don't mind racing, just the drugs and weird things that they do to the horses. O.o I am not a fan of jumping either.
I guess there is the number of foals that head to the meat industry but I'm not one to complain about a food source.
