My cousin used to have a chestnut quarter horse. I'm assuming that's what she was. She wasn't a Thoroughbred -- just a very nice saddlebred horse. Her name was Princess and I don't think anything could scare that horse. Nothing bothered her. She is one of the calmest horses I've ever met -- a real sweetheart.
I like horses, although I've never learned to ride. They're beautiful, intelligent animals.
