Is New England a county?

New England is an area of the USA comprising the northern original 13 colonies, for the most part.

The area of the USA where I live is called 'The Palouse' . . . it is a Nez Perce Indian name, and from it is derived the Indian horse breed name: "A 'Palouser'", which has since been mixed together to make the name, "Appaloosa". The Appaloosa horse club national headquarters is located in the town that I live in . . . .
