All I said was I think she is pretty. Meaning I like her color. It was a simple statement that some are questioning why I even said it. So I have to keep explaining myself. It was my opinion and I was asked why and I explained it two or three times now. That has NOTHING to do with her confirmation. I even said that I don't know much about confirmation. I don't need to tuck anything away in my horse vocablulary because I already know confirmation is a big thing for the breed standard and for what you want to do with the horse.
My horse has a long back and I have been told he is built like a bus on here but he has the best personality I could ever ask for. To me he is beautiful because I am probably just partial to him. Just because a horse does't have perfect confirmation doesn't mean they are still ugly animals and don't deserve a chance to live in a good caring home. I still enjoy riding my horse on trail rides with friends or alone. His horrible confirmation doesn't hold us back from what we like to do together.
