    I don't really find appy's nice too looks at really (at least not the ones I have had) but I find them to be a very smart, sure footed breed, I have owned my fare share of appys and have riden a few for others and none I them I would consider stupied. I would call a stupied horse one you pay $1000 for training and the trainer send its back to you saying the horse is untrainable. God that horse was a stupied horse, never bucked or anything she just just plaine stupied and some horses are like that. And she was a QH.

    Apaloosa's are awesome. I love them. Paints are just as nice. People who don't like appy's are weird... :)

    I love appy's. I am the new proud mama of a 9-month-old registered appy. :) No spots, though. He's all black, with 3 white socks, star and snip. He doesn't look appy, actually. He's pretty furry right now, so there might be some color under there somewhere when he sheds out.

    I just love him!

    Ya see, I like horses that love all people. I really love my morgan, and he is an all people horse. It's just that they have to be experienced to ride him. I think Appys arent a very willing horse(that my opinion).

    Thanks for all of the comments on Blue. He really is so sweet. The funniest thing about him is when he is getting trimmed, he will bury his head under my arm as to say, "Just do it, I can't watch." LOL

    He has came along way. I love him. Esp the two black spots on the back of his knees. Kind of looks like eyes.

    Appy on people.

    Ugly to some people is pretty to others. It's all in what you prefer.
    Me-- I'll take the gorgeous lusitano with the long flowing mane OR the QH ranch cross that's downhill and cow-hocked.

    I've heard a lot of people say Appys are just mean-tempered.
    Some leopard Appys can be kind of ugly, I guess. The eyes. O.o

    I've worked with several Appaloosas and they've all been really nice. They were no different than QH's or any other stock breed. I don't get why people don't like them. Arabians are another story, though. I know why lots of people don't like those.

    Theres a myth that they're crazy horses that can never truely be tamed . . . Kinda like the myth about paints and pintos

    I am the PROUD owner of 3 beautiful Appaloosas. I think they are awesome and so unique! Appaloosas are the only breed I would buy, I love them so much! I don't find them stubborn at all, once you explain something to them so they can understand it they are very willing to do whatever you ask! I have done all of the training of my now 10 yr old, and we make an awesome team!
    I get ALOT of people making negative comments about my Appys but I love them and will continue to own and ride them for as long as I have horses!
