Aw, that poor little guy. I have never seen that before. I'm glad that he has a family to love and care for him even though his life will be so challenging.

I am confident enough in my own horses to say that I have a couple of fugly ones.

Bessie: her confo is mostly okay for a drafty, but her head is so incredibly fugly. It doesn't help that her ears almost never move from this hanging straight out to the sides position LOL. Her mellow and sweet personality more than makes up for it though.


Koda is the same way, basic confo is okay but his head is so big and clunky looking. He's just ugly.


Then there's Taz *shakes head* he is an absolute sweetheart but it is so hard to believe that such a beautiful daddy could make such a fugly foal. He's bug eyed, ewe necked, and so cow hocked on the back that his hocks brush together when he walks . It's almost like he got his daddy's draft eyeballs but his momma's standard sized eyesockets LOL. Not to mention that he's mule-footed on the back too.


And lastly, there's this guy. My heart honestly broke for him when I saw him. He is one of the most unfortunate looking creatures I have ever seen. I bet he is a sweetie though.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Here are just a couple I knew.
This is Meatball, though not the best pic to show his uglyness, he had aweful conformation. An ArabXPercheron gone wrong!

Then there was Chili, a Quarab gelding. Still ranks as the ugliest horse I ever owned. Didn't help that he was a fleebitten gray, which is my least favorite colot

This is my Willow. I'm always surprised when people say how pretty she is. They obviously can't see past her color. The front is all mustang and the back is all arab. I wish it had been the other way around. Her head is huge & flat. On top of that her one front leg is a little crooked due to her previous owners stupidity.
On the plus side, she has a great heart, takes care of her rider and is a kick butt trail horse.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

AWWH I think Koda is a very handsome looking horse, I love his head!
And as for Chili, I don't see one thing wrong with him, he is goursges, I want him!! :)

When I can't ride anymore, I shall keep horses as long as I can hobble along with a bucket and wheelbarrow. When I can't hobble, I shall roll my wheelchair out by the fence of the field where my horses graze, and watch them!

OH MY!! Poor horse :/ makes me want to go give him/her a hug same with that other poor little foal!
But same as humans thay have a purpose in life as well! :) I bet you could train him/her to do some super cool tricks like bowing, or rearing up or something! :)

We rescued a little Palomino gelding that's kind of unfortunate looking all over. Poor conformation and small, but his most recognizable feature is his strange little face. I don't have a great picture to show you of it, but he was apparently born with a crooked, roman nosed face with eyes that are a little offset. Besides that, he's a great little people pleaser and trail horse.
