I know! I swear, I've had people call me a liar and I'd almost think I was one if I didn't physically see our stud breed his dam and watch him be born! Karasma just sired ugly colts - his half brother was the exact same, and yet Karasma's fillies were gorgeous.
You could never ask for a better horse though. He was born to be a big pet, and was just an angel from the day he was born. You could do ANYTHING with that horse, he just thrived from attention, especially from children.
Heh heh, maybe the ugly ones are like people? They know they have to be extra sweet and special to make up for their looks?
