This guy is just extremely fat, I know because I took the photo. Don't know how it wound up here but the wonders of the internet. He was a horse being kept next door to my grandmothers place in boise, the mare he was in with was a twig. They're gone now, no idea where they went.
I read somewhere earlier today someone say they don't like Arabs, they are ugly
There are some horses who are actually deformed, or just have less desirable conformation that make them ugly to some, but cute to others, and in my experience it is the plain ones who often make the best partners (or was I thinking about men there)
Sometimes though an ugly fugly like this one
Is actually a diamond in the rough, just needing some love and some work to turn into a little star
I must say two things have been bothering me all day since I discovered this forum this morning. One being I know no one means any offense to anyone else but if the owners of the horses posted as ugly saw this they would be offended. Secondly the use of other peoples photos that you don't have permission to use is another matter entirely. At first I told myself I didn't care its not even my horse depicted in the photo I took, but as an amture photographer I do care. I don't mind allowing people to use my photos with my permission. It annoys me to no end to find one of them being used not only here but the same photo in an article on a completly different site. I know no one meant any harm in it but I'm just giving you a warning some other photographers and horse owners won't be just annoyed like I am.
I think in some way you have a point about using others pictures PaintedHart, but unfortunately that is the problem with internet. Once it's out there, it's public domain, and anyone can use it. We had a very long and exhaustive thread on that some time back in another section of the forum. I don't think anyone means any harm though with this particular thread.
