What The Heck Is A Homer??
What does is take to become a "Homer"? Does it only require riding a Turner? If that is the case, we now have 4 "Homers" in the Black Hills of SD? My wife has a 5 Spot-is she a Homer, a Homerette, or a Marge? If ever near the BlacK Hills of SD, we have fantastic riding. Just curious on "Homer" origin and history. Thanks
