Here's one in my part of the country...just a few hours away in Idaho.
Somewhere, TRUST ME, there is SOMETHING that CAN and WILL spook him. What happens when a bee buzzes up his butt? Or the neighbor decides it's a good time to shoot at beer cans in the backyard? Hell, you might have a goat take off dragging a tire by a chain. It happens, trust me. ;-)
I really want to like you people. Your Appies do endurance and cow events and trail rides. You aren't just mindlessly breeding and never training. Your horses are good weight and look well cared for. Your young stock look better than your old stock, conformationally, so you appear to actually be improving your breed! Why must you force me to feature you on this page by putting up these bad parent du jour grand prize winner pictures?
In other news, Big Brown won the Preakness...and nobody died today! Yay! You know, I hope he stays sound to finish his racing career and I hope a long and happy retirement is ahead of him and, looking at those damn feet, I also hope he's sterile.
