A Conversation for Farm Animals and their Names
Vieneriffic Started conversation Jun 1, 2003
A very impressive entry, I feel, especially where cattle are concerned, but I was somewhat aggrieved to find your "Horses" description somewhat lacking. What about hunters (refined leggy horses good for foxhunting/jumper work)? And hacks (smaller, fine-boned horses bred for children, ladies, and carriage work)? And the biggie, draft horses/drafters (heavy, "coldblooded" horses ideal for farm work, often topping 18 hands)? Also your filly/colt standard was kind of vague: Fillies and colts are female and male horses under four years of age. (Really I could blab on forever about horses, but I figured I'd just put down some of the crucial "base" points.) Other than that, I liked your entry quite a bit, and you've certainly got the rest of the hoofstock down pat! Keep up the good work--maybe we'll hear an entry from you on farm life/machinery/farming techniques--or what to look for when buying livestock? I hope so!
