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...
