Good Lord, chill out. I was simply making a statement. No need to be rude. :roll: I was just saying that if he was a real hand full I doubt a girl would be handling him. Obviously, women are fully capable of handling horses. I'm a woman myself. I'm going by my experience that the unruly ones are "usually" handled by men. Instead of jumping all over someone maybe you should try and be helpful. Wow!

Except that's pretty much untrue, which is why people are objecting to the comment.

Lisa, who works the ring at Keeneland sales, can hold her own with any unruly horse just as well as any of the male handlers.

:shock: My experience at the farms and sales must have been in a parallel universe. Nobody gave a damn who handled what unruly youngster as long as you had the skills. I got stuck with quite a few of them anyway despite usually being outnumbered by guys on the crew.

Your experience doesn't reflect how things really are. Gender doesn't matter and strength doesn't matter. It's all about skill. A horse can run away with a male in tow the very same way it can with a woman. If anything I'd say it's more the other way around. Lots of really nasty (or highstrung) stallions seemed to be doing better with a female handler, especially if they had bad experiences with males in the past.

Ziconic is a pretty horse but I don't he's all that special looking. I have a feeling if he was the colt of some unknown mare very few of you would have such a dazzling opinion of him.

Is he attractive? Yes, but he's by a very good sire out of a beautiful mare, he should be pretty.

I hope he has a wonderful racing career but I'm not holding my breath for it.

I don't know her personally, but I suspect she might bristle at the idea that a tough colt should have one of the male handlers and not her.
