I have recently seen photos of a horse that was treated with regular main & tail conditioner instead of MTG. It looked to me like it actually worked better.

Just food for thought.

Gem has a long and semi thick tail, and a long mane.

Vega's tail is long and not all that thick, but it's a long tail.. her mane and forelock are a different story

Personally i'm sorry but I don't like Appys the loud coloring kind of bothers me but I also don't really like most qh's or Arabs.

The only reason I say that is bc i've only met very few Arabs i've liked and only one qh i've liked and every Appy i've tried to ride or my trainers or friends have all rode said they were all mean and crazy and stubborn, but that's just my opinion. For all you guys that like them that's awesome, i'm just more of a warmblood and TB person but that's bc i'm a jumper/eventer.

I'm not saying if I didnt meet a sweet Appy I wouldnt like it, just the ones i've met I don't like and i'm not one much for spots except for Dapples.

But everybody has their own opinions so I hope no one jumps down my throat.

Appy's are very versitile and can do anythign you put your mind too. They have allot of heart and are very smart. They need to be told why and are very courious about things. It is different in there personallities and for some people they can clash. If you take the time to answer all there why's you will have a wonderful horse and companion for life. My appy has a very full mane and tail. The sparce tail and mane was an undesirable trait that got bred in by some bad stock. Seems to be going away though.

I had an appy mare who gave people good reason to hate her. She was rude, at times nasty and had one of the ugliest heads I've ever seen on a horse I adored her though. When she liked you she'd give you her all. If she didn't well... you'd be lucky if you could get within 20 feet of her.

I love color and I like appys! I like leopard apps too. Every breed has their own stereotypes.
