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

I find appies to be very unique in themselves. They are just so curious and so inquisitive, they are always into anything and everything.

I learned to ride on two different appys. The first was a chestnut leopard, the second was a blue roan of some sort.

The blue roan appy, Snoopy was his name, was such a sweetheart. I miss that horse!! He died last year at a ripe old age

I personally like the breed. I don't think there is an ugly one...they are one of my favorite breeds

However, I do have to admit, I know that it does take a different 'eye' to think that some appys are pretty...

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.

I have seen some beautiful Appys. I think the coloring gives them character. The only thing I have against them is they seem to have trouble growing a tail.

I love them and think they are beautiful. One of my favorite horses to ride was an app.
