    I noticed her in your other thread. She really has a nice build for hard trail work - short back, thick neck, big ol' feet, heavy bone and nice high croup. The Appy jughead is just a bonus that marks her apart from the lesser breeds...

    Oh pooi, tell that person who said she was uggs to hush . She does have a jug head, and her neck could be better, but if she is not a halter horse, which are very pretty but usually .. do not stand up to hard work. I will take durablilty and function over pretty pretty any day. You have a cute stout little horse.
    Bet she is pretty in summer all slicked out.

    I agree with everyone else. I would take her for trail riding over any halter horse any day!

    And she has lovely color to boot. But even if she was pink-polka-dotted it wouldn't matter, she is built nice and solid.

    Her head isn't very refined, but hey, who cares? Pretty is as pretty does.

    I have a BLM Mustang that most people might not give a second glance, but he is built tough-as-nails and has enough bone and hoof to carry a heavy rider all day for days on end. He never has a sore back and has only come up lame twice in 8 years, and they were only minor issues that healed on their own.

    So yeah, l LOVE a solid trail horse.

    Thanks I take pride in her pretty coat color, and though she may not be made for a show jumper she is still gorgeous to me I love her to bit! And I totally agree I love solid horses! The ones with long thin builds I don't think are as good looking at the solid ones.

    Her neck is set on low and she's a bit hammer headed. Both of those things make a horse less beautiful, but dont' really affect it's longevity and usefulness as an everyday riding horse. Her back , hip and legs are built for sturdiness.
    She's not a BMW. She's a Subaru. Which would you rather have to drive around in the snow and in them hills?

    Yeah but would you count her as flat out the ugliest horse you ever saw? And I would pick the subaru lol I love her sturdiness cause like you said in the hills and deep snow I need a sturdy horse lol. Thanks for commenting your car question made me laugh
