All that is rare is expensive;
An inexpensive horse is a rare thing.
Therefore, an inexpensive horse is expensive.

Such is the absurdity of the syllogism. Here is another nonsense, less playful, that relates to the fate of racehorses when they are sent into retirement. Some breeds, such as that of Dauphin, a racehorse adopted by a Quebecois actress Elyzabeth Walling and therefore saved from death, are not meant to be riding horses. Being trained and used as racehorses all their lives, it is difficult and expensive to provide them with a new vocation. A horse can live up to 30 years, but at the age of 6 or 7 years, it no longer corresponds to the requirement that are expected of them at the races which often can mean the end of his racing career as well as the end of his life. The moment when tenderness becomes scarce and expensive.
