Quarter horses

Quarter horses stand about 16 hands high.
 Although primarily developed as a short distance racehorse, the Quarter horse is as well known for its skills in Western  riding disciplines. It is noted for its inherent cow sense. Quarter horses are noted for extremely fast standing starts, great speed over short distances, agility, and cow sense. in addition, they are known fortheir docile and willing temperament while being, at the same time, lively, energetic, and happy to try anything. They are usually kept in very varying conditions, from being fully stabled at luxury racing establishments, to running out on the range in the Western parts of the United States. In practice, being halfbred or warmblooded, they are not difficult to care for and are physically tough.

Joanna, can you explain to me the term "cow sense" what is it?

It is a term to describe that these horses are good to use with cattle?

I like to read your posts. Keep up the good work!

Love, Mom
