Tack Room - I love the smell of a tack room:  Horse sweat, wool blankets, lots of leather, the smell of the earth and sunshine mixed in throughout all those other smells.  Each saddle belonging to a particular rider; each bridle belonging to a particular horse. It is intoxicating.

tattooedtrouble:

I demand to know what breed of neigh this is.

The Menorquin, a fairly recent horse breed, only recognized and registered as a breed in 1989, there are not many of this breed left .
Draft horses, overall, are lessening in number due to industrialization and no need to pull heavy wagons, carts, milk trucks, firetrucks, etc.  You can only make so many Budweiser commercials.
