Have you ever heard the 'joke'..
Why do indians ride appys on the war path?
So they'll be good and mad when they get there!
I've heard from several people that apps are unusually stubborn and often not as smart, but, the ones that are great are absolutely worth their weight in gold. Someone else told me that apps originated from the horses so slow/unintelligant that the indians were able to catch them. And I think a lot of people aren't used to their unusual markings. I have to admit, I've seen some not so pretty apps out there.:) but I haven't had enough experience with them to really form an opinion overall.
