What is it about horses that just makes some women fall in love. I mean as soon as you mention something about doing something with your horses off handedly, it's like a switch in their brain flips and they want to know EVERYTHING about them. As someone who's family has six, I've never seen the big appeal. I mean, yeah, they're like giant dopey dogs you can ride (and also kill you), but they take a ton of work to take care of!
