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.

It is very useful information to some extent. Please help me out regarding this topic going on. Can some one tell me to what exact direction discussion is going on now?

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.

What's to pick apart? I think Blue is adorable. He has the sweetest looking face!

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.

appys do tent to have an attidude it just takes the right person to take the attidude I have two of them and I know for a fact that they are one person type horse I know my old horse will give a hundred and ten percent and I love him for that todays appys tent to be more qh or tbs with pattern really to find a true appy is getting harder and I have seen some appys with beautiful manes tails but for the most I think alot people just have a hard time with a horse with so much charactor aqnd personality and I absoultely lvoe thier eyes cause they are more expresive like a humans eyes but there again everyone has their opinions on diffrent breeds and that's what makes the horse world go round but that is just my opinion

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.
