lilkitty90, i love the color of your guy! & look at the legs on him! (so glad i dont have geldings though lmao)

smrobs, i love the 2nd horse :) he's gorgeous as well as the last 2.

corinowalk, i think i'll have to agree. That's almost exactly the sort of Appy that turns me off of them alltogether lol (the first would be a darker colored horse with that amount of pink mottling & no mane/tail) If it weren't for the intense pink skin around the eyes & muzzle, her spotting is actually quite neat lol.

We have one Appy at my barn, Jack. He's like 35 and in my opinion, pretty ugly. Our vet calls Appys "Appalosers" :P

Aw, poor guy, he is kinda ugly LOL. Looks like he has the personality to more than make up for it though.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Poor Jack lol in the first pic i have to agree that he isn't pretty (the pink around the eyes as well as his nose looks large...) in the 2nd he actually looks nice lol (to me!) Then again i have a thing for albinos & cremellos. I love the spots on his butt

This is Rosie and her owner :)
They're a cute pair..
Rosie's had 2 babies herself, so she's straining to watch the gypsy vanner colt in the round pen!

QHDragon, Lilly is beautiful, she looks like she has been snowed on :)

I love appaloosas to look at and its always great when I see one, the're not very common round these parts... Also they rarely do well in shows because their pattern ruins their lines...

My fave, appy pattern is the near leopard


(and on other spotted breeds)

I also love appy/ drafts, because why not have something big and spotty?

appy/ shire

Aw thank you. She is now down in KY and is suppose to be bred to a friesian stallion.

Somewhere I read that there was an "Appaloosa draft" breed of some sort, or at least a group of people trying to start one. I can't for the life of me remember what they are called though.
