Lol! A friend told me (also an appy owner), the reason the "Indians" were so fierce and wild going into battle, was after what they went through with their appy horses, they were ready to kill anyone!

Glad to know someone else out there has a sense of humour about the ignorance's concerning certain breeds of horses.

There are pro's and con's to all breeds of course! I'm partial to QH's personally, but I would never put down other breeds because of that. Different breeds work for different people!

Didnt know much bout different breeds, just found a deal on a horse, wanted it got it....and in a few short months we are very happy w/ our big ol QH our appy and as of tonight a TB. We have had an arab,TB and mustang before, all had pros/cons.

The grass may be greener on the other side,
but it still has to be mowed.

My horse has been called a poor man's Andalusian, a scrub pony, indian pony, squaw pony, they were hated and killed in the hundreds. Or they were just bred down into crossbreds. There are a few thousand still left, but they're endangered still

I hate when people stereotype. All horses are different. No matter what. Each breed has good and bad points. End of story. It's funny, most people who talk about how "bad" a certain breed is probably has never actually been around the breed themselves and just say that because that's what they've heard. If somebody has a bad experience with a horse it's more likely because of how the horse was trained or how inexpereinced they are. I hate when people bash horses talking about "typical tbs" or "typical appys". Every horse is different. End of story.

I think everyone has there own opinon on what horse is the best but all are good as long as the person takes the time the horse needs any horse can be trained it just takes some time. I like all horses but I own Qh.

Yes, it's true that all horses are different. But there are also characteristics that are common in certain breeds That's WHY they are a breed. Arabs = Endurance. Thoroughbreds = Speed. QH/ASH = cow sense and agility. And it goes on. Most people put down a breed because it doesn't suit THEM.That's why for example, I don't like TB's. They don't suit my purpose, they are not bred or built for it. If you say you shouldn't criticize a breed, then by rights you shouldn't compliment a breed either. The very traits you love about yor breed may be why the next person dislikes them.

Just my two cents :]
