I stand corrected, O gracious lady, for your knowledge of equine intellect

That is - the sum total of my very non-encyclopedic knowledge of horses is
"GO faster!!! I bet 5 dollars on you!"
Or "Hmmm... *THAT* doesn't taste like beef - OR chicken!... Must be horse!"

must use the oft neglected "Git 'Em", which will product a sonic event with
