Since my '91s factory paint is maroon and cosmic splendor red, I'm torn between Cosmic Lady, for the color, or Bad Girl, because she will always be tempting me to ride her. (And yes, the pun is intentional !)

I would venture to say that we are probably ,in the minority here as to plowing horses when younger,I still have a set of pony rigging that I used when I was a boy to plow a little black shetland mining pony ,for the small gardens and we kept a mule for the heavy work.Dying breed Old Dog!! Although I have had several Jobs where I stared at the north end of a south bound horse ,and they were usually in charge!!! LOL

going down rt 32 and rt 35 in ohio I see the amish out there plowing with their horses, seen one doing a large field with two horses and a single plow. and one day I seen them on a big plow with a huge team of horses, that was pretty cool!

I could have called mine "Donkey", just cause I love the donkey Budweiser commercial, IMO, the greatest commercial of all time.

Kind of a parable of our "little bike" running with (and often leading) the big boys!
