I think they're a thing of young females who don't have any actual 
experience of how much work it is to take care of large animals. I was 
the only girl in fifth grade who didn't want a horse; I was also the 
only one who had four living grandparents with two working farms.

My husband adds that during the Civil War, farm boys generally joined 
the infantry; it was the city boys who formed the dashing cavalry regiments.
