Let's see your ugly horses. Tell us what about them you think is ugly, and tell us why you love them anyway.
This is Bessie, she's an 11 year old Belgian mare.
Why she's ugly: Big clunky head, moose nose, mule ears that constantly hang straight out to either side, super short thick neck.
Why I love her anyway: She has the best mind. No matter what you ask her to do or whether she's ever done it before, she always tries to please and stays calm. She's also a calming influence on her driving partner, John, who is much hotter blooded. Also, she gave me a wonderful foal who has grown into a fantastic young horse with his momma's temperament and, thankfully, his Daddy's head LOL.
Talyn: coming 2 year old grade pinto filly.
Why she's ugly: Unrefined head, prominent ewe neck, long back, long pasterns, wonky hind legs.
Why I love her anyway: She's smart...maybe too smart LOL. She takes everything I throw at her in stride and gains confidence every day. She's sweet and seeks me out for scratches in all her favorite places. She's very sensible and isn't prone to panicking, in spite of her feral breeding and upbringing.
