I think the reason y they say that is because back way then when the indeans used them the white man came and killed there horses because amlost all of the indeans life revolved around his horse and they figured out that if they kill the horses the indeans can't do any thing so then there was so little appys that they started in inbreed so they came out ******ed or disfigured so that's probibly y they say that :

Totally have to agree with you.
That's one of the sorriest excuses for not liking a breed that I've ever heard.

maybe they don't like them because they can be stubborn!??? I don't know...i think there beautiful the only thing I don't really like about them is that you can see the whites of there eyes in some of them alot and that they can be hard headed but other then that there adorable.

yes, I totally agree with you Gee.
Maybe some spelling lessons as well.
And maybe not use derogatory words like the ones you used
I personally take offense to the word "******ed"

I've loved appaloosas since I was a small child and my older brother bought my my very first Breyer---an appy stallion. I hate to hear people say they don't like a breed because it's stubborn. I love horses with attitude, and it feels like such an accomplishment when you get them trained! I just got an Arab/Appy cross last week. She's 1 1/2, and was starving where she was because the other horses would chase her off the food. I can see already that she is going to be a handfulto train. With just a week here and eating well, she's already showing spunkiness! :)

Everything can be achieved through patience!

I'd rather have a problem horse than a problem man. The horse I can work with. The man---I cannot help!
