I know! I have heard alot of people calling appaloosas crappaloosas. I like them. I don't understand what can be so bad about an appy. My horse shows the whites of her eyes on one eye. It looks a little weird but it's not ugly like some people say. They also say that appy's have pig eyes. No they don't. I see more quarter horses with pig eyes than appy's. But as for me, I think appy's are beautiful!
It might be the fact that I have pretty much grown up with Appaloosas, why I stick up for them. lol. I honestly like them very much. Confo and all usually. I'm a sucker for the stocky. lol. That was Buddy. The stockiest Appy I've ever seen. Standing at 15.2hh he was I believe 1450lbs. BIG BOY! lol. :) I like everyone's replies. Good and bad. :-D
Personally i think Appys are ugly ugly ugly. Sorry but that my opinion, they are too busy with their coloring. Their heads are ugly and i don't like their tails. I find that they have no show appeal at all. But thats just me.
