MARES, the female of the horse kind, are chiefly considered here under the notion of breeding; therefore, such as are designed for this purpose ought to be as free from defects as possible, for the colts will take after them; but choice should be made of the best and ablest, the high spirited, best coloured, and finest shaped; and the natural defects that may be in the stallion should be amended in the mare, as well as that which is amiss in the mare should be repaired in the stallion.
Harewood, Harry. A Dictionary of Sports. London: T. Tegg and son, 1835
