SQUEEZE MY APPY

I use to not like appaloosa's, mostly because of their & molten features but alot of paints have it too, I can't stand a paint with a white face without the masskara around the eyes, eww, really I just don't like the pink look, its creepy.
Some appaloosa's have a seriously ugly pattern, like the roaning out, smudged look, umm no...

The best Appaloosa's are LEOPARD!!! Lol or solid with a blanket snow cap & wap spots.
Other than that once I have gotten to live with one for 5 years now, I have come to love his crazy, goofy horsenality, its like no other & said that's only a trait found in the Toby bred Appaloosa's!

I don't mind appys. I have heard many stories on the breed. The first horse I ever lessoned on was an appy mare. Sweet horse. Many people I've talked to say appys are stubborn and hard headed with a bad temper. But I've never rode the breed enough to really know how they are.

I know lots of people that don't like varnish roan, but I do :) personal preference. I used to dislike bays, but I currently own three, I've really learned color doesn't matter. I'm not a fan of double dilutes.

The white sclera gets a lot if people, but has never bothered me. Recently I Was at an auction where a friend was looking at a colt. He was 9 months old, 13hh and STOCKY. Black with four white socks, a star and snip and one white spot. Incredible confo, and standing nice and quiet. Great bloodlines and an incredible mover. Lots of guys standing there were commenting "that ones crazy, just look at his eyes!". Oye.

I love the eyes! You can actually tell what they are thinking!

You know I've never understood why people think the only horses with white sclera are appies, I've met plenty of TBs and QHs with them.

Not my favorite horse color, but I never buy a horse for his coat, either.

I was raised around apps, and I've met a lot of them. I know there are good and bad horses in every breed, but most of the apps I've worked with have been great horses. Once I had a their trust, they would do anything I asked them to.

Nellie was/is my soulmate. Nothing in the world has touched my heart like she has, and nothing could ever replace her... For showing kindness to her, after being in a bad home, she saved my life. I could have wound up paralyzed or dead, but because of her STEPPING between me and steel shod hooves I'm still alive and kicking. I owe her more than I could possibly ever give...
I just wish she were still here so I could tell her how much I love her one last time <3

The only reason I don't personally find them appealing is due to their eyes. The ones I have met have mean little piggy eyes and you can see the whites of them. They're not nasty and some of them are very nice lookers, but I just can't get past the eyes :)
