It would have been very odd if the cougar had been another stallion. It would have made Spirit seem aggressive.

Where did that fact come from though?

Also, I think Esperanza has a much more important role than what's stated, but it is true that she doesn't appear much. She appears in the "Sound the Bugle" scene, in Spirit's vision.

I think Spirit's tie is really to his herd, rather than his homeland, though. After all, the song goes, "Where YOU are is home," not "Where the land is, is home." "Wherever YOU STAY, I'll find the way."

And one more thing: I know it's official, but Matt Damon's narration is one of the worst things about the film. Bryan Adams is Spirit's real voice, not Matt Damon--he's an imposter D:
