I did a master's thesis paper for my MA in History on the Nez Perces and the Appaloosa horse. This horse has an amazing history. In my eyes they are beautiful, loyal, elegant and the horse world is enriched by their presence. I think an appy can be one of the most strikingly beautiful of horses - and I own a Paint, and before him a QH! Not sure where all the negativity comes from. Em

I think the negativity is a sign of ignorance. Just like racism.

i love appy's to be honest, and horses shouldn't be judged on their appearence. people could sit there and say they dont like paints because they're not one colour (personally i love all different colours! - makes a horse unique tbh) . i've got a friend that has an appaloosa - and he's gorgeous! when I walk past his stable, he sticks his head out and has as much character and cheekyness that the other horses do.. so i think appy's are gorgeous :)

People do this with almost all breeds it seems...they happen to know 1 or 2 Appy's who are crazy or just not well trained, so they stick that stereotype on the entire breed instead of just chalking it up to those 2 individual horses.

I got thrown by a crazy Appy once, but I don't dislike the BREED for it, I'll just never right that particular HORSE again! I think Appy's are beautiful

depends on the appy. some appys are awsome some are just plane ugly like the one we had. It was plain ugly though a gray coat with speckeled ornge dots ornge main UCK!!!!!! but it was a very very very calm horse. It was realy calm even though it had moon blindness. personly i dont like they way they look but heck they still are amazing horses. But know see i think blanket appys LOOK STELLER!!!!!!!!!. as long as it just blankets the rump lol some are blanketed to far LMAO.

I'd love to have a heavier built Appy. I've heard they are more slender built but never really looked into it O.o

They're was the CUTEST chestnut Leopard spot appy colt at my old stable. He was adorable. Lemme see if I can find a picture...

Wait! I'll fix it....
