My first horse after a 20 year break was an Appy, at first I didn't care for the breed, but the price was right and she was everything else I was looking for in a horse. She was solid in color, but I didn't care, she was such a great docile horse I gave her to my then 11 year old daughter. I then purchased a grade quarter horse, nice personality, but was continuously lame, so I seeked out another appy. She was unbroke, I had to earn her trust, and we conquered may trail miles together, she took great care of me. She gave me a beautiful Pali Appy that will be my forever horse, she is the sweetest girl I have met. I will say that throughout my adult years as a horse owner Appies have been the sweetest puppy like, stubborn of course, but the smartest horses I have seen out there and I will always have an Appy in my life. :)
Owned by a BEAUTIFUL, very SPOILED Palomino Appaloosa:
