personalities of it's 500 (or so) troopers and also the 500 horses.
Which could be more cantankerous is an open question ;)
I've been stepped on by many people and one horse. I'll take the

- Bill Compliments Sir,
I really hate to be so far behind ya'lls conversation but being a
Engineer Tech. for a County up here in the U.P. during the week I do
12s & 14s during our short construction season, so I have little time
other than eat & sleep, I'll quit whineing- Boo-Hoo.
Roderick, Forrests Horse, would follow him around camp like a dog, I
believe hit with a round during battle at which time N.B stuck his
finger in the wound to stem the bleeding and escaped after reaching
safety removed the finger and the horse bled out and died. I believe
there is even a poem wriiten of that steed. I believe his favorite
was "King Phillip" the one that charged anything blue. I'll leave it
at that because so many "myths" have come from that peculiar tendency.
