I think there are some Appys that are ugly. I think that there's maybe quite a few that are. But, ask me if I care? Fresians are "pretty", but I'd take an Appy any day over a Fresian. I want to ride it, not look at it.
(Sorry Fresian folks)
I want a horse that will get me where I'm going. That's an App for ya!
They have staying power. I only wish I could have seen what the original Nez Perce ponies looked like . They've been "enhanced" so much that who knows if they bear any real resemblance to the originals. But, Lewis and Clark wrote about what good horses they were. zulu, body shot.jpg taylor mt. 001.jpg
