    why don't you like a certin breed?

    I"m always curious to why people don't like certin breeds. I have a tb and he's a sweetheart. Why don't you like a certin breed?

    There's not really a breed I don't like as a whole, just certain horses from that breed.
    I don't like crappy deformed minis. But I also don't like beefed up quarter horses.

    There are certain aspects that I don't like about certain breeds but I still like the breed itself. Though most of them I have no interest in owning. These are the reasons for my dislike of certain breeds. (all stereotypes and personal experience)

    TBs= tend to be hot and flighty. Too dainty with small bones and not enough muscle mass for a large frame. After growing up with QH's, TB's just look scrawny. Too tall for roping.

    Arabs= same as TB, tend to be hot and flighty. Too small for most cow work and seem really skinny and really short. Plus I really don't like the dish face look.

    QHs= really dislike the breeding in recent years. Bred to be either way too compact with short neck, short back, short legs, and way too much muscle or tall and gangly like a tb. Hard to find what I consider quality QHs anymore.

    Paints and Appaloosas= not really much difference in the two in my opinion. There has been so much cross breeding done that these breeds are really nothing more than QHs with color and suffer the same flaws. Plus, I don't like my horses to have too much white on them.

    That being said, there are exceptions to every rule.

    I've worked with TB's, QH's arabs and paints/appys. I do agree but Arabs and tb's are my fav. They just have what I like in a breed.

    I agree with Spastic Dove. I don't hate whole breeds... I just hate certain aspects of breeds. I don't like Arabs and Minis who look like aliens. I don't like QHs and Paints who look like they're on steroids. I don't like TWHs who look like caricatures of horses.

    There isn't a breed I don't like. Instead of concentrating on the negativity for a particular breed, I think about the good things of that breed. If I have an issue, its because of the individual horse, and I know that most of it is how the horse has been treated.


    I think there have only been 3 horses in my 34 years of life I haven't liked. They had truly bad temperaments.

    Can't say I dislike a particular breed. I am drawn to what will suit my needs for what I do. Soundness, temperament, stability, ect. Are more important to me than what color, gender, ect...

    I am on the heavier side than slim, so a delicately built, or small mount is not something I would be drawn to.

    Like what was said earlier, all breeds have their pros and cons. Many different riding disciplines and many breeds of horse to fit those disciplines.

    I have nothing against any breed...I like them all. I am partial to Paints because they have worked well (or perhaps we've had good luck and/or breeding) for us. All our Paint mares have good dispositions, low maintenance/easy keepers, sure footed, and great on anything from the trail to the road in traffic (and they're pretty, too). For the type of pleasure riding we do, having a horse that you can reliably just saddle up and go on a minute's notice works perfectly for us. I imagine other breeds could work just as well.

    Theres always the good in bad in every breed I suppose. Personally I'm not fond of arabs. Their noses look like someones smooshed them through a can and when it popped back out, that's what it looked like. It just doesn't look right.
    I'm not fond of QH's because personally, they all look alike to me.

    I don't like any horse that does that creepy parked out stretch pose like the morgans and saddlebreds do. Blech!

    I don't really like appaloosas. They are clumsy, and not too intelligent. I don't like the pink around most of their eyes. Or the "freckles eyes and noses" sorry appaloosa lovers! No offense
