    I've actually never been a huge fan of appys. Their eyes kind of freak me out and the lack of mane and tails on some is well, kind of yuck. I always said that I'd probably never personally own one. That said, I just bought an appy! And I can't wait to get him home! He isn't the most photogenic horse that I've seen so far, but he is a lot prettier in person and he has a great personality and is a lot of fun to ride. I'm looking forward to doing some small schooling shows this summer with him and I'm so happy I bought him.

    Blue

    I love appys. I do But.... I think the neighbors scrawny, weird little mix is cute. I am a horse fan. Regardless of the breed. I will top on the side of the road to look at horses. I came across Blue and while he may not be the cutest horse on the block, he is by far the sweetest and most loving horse I have came across. He is very willing to learn what I teach him. He has attitude when he needs it and I would not trade him for any "registered" perfect little horse in the world.

    I appreciate others opinions, to each his own.

    I love horses regardless of size, color, breed or attitude.

    Being said that... Here is a few pictures of my not so purdy, mohawky App Mix Blue...

    Go ahead. Tear him apart. He knows I love him.

    I don't hate them, I just don't care for them. The one Appy I was trying out was, stubborn! I also hate thier attitude(to me they are very pushy.) At least the ones I have came across.

    What you said about them being a one person horse made me think....My mare T definitely chose me and although she allows others to ride her, she definitely allows it, she doesn't behave as she does for me. Walka, well, I'm the only one to ride him thus far. My two girlfriends with appy , defiantly one person horses. Hmmmm.......there may be something to this. I will be observing more closely during trail riding season of the other apps and owners. Interesting .

    I like them! Some aren't the prettiest ever, but I still like them. I've got one due in a week or two. They are pretty. Especially the black and white blankets.
