Ok ok, fine. Here is my REAL ugly horse. Kenzie just pretends to be ugly. This guy really is an ugly horse. Don't worry, he's mine too. Some of y'all have met him...

Why I think he's ugly: Ok, for one he's FAT. Look at that cresty neck! His nose is really long and always snotty, and his ears always flop over like he's drunk or something. He's also seriously wasp waisted, has insanely crooked legs, and literally NO wither. Like, worst case of mutton withers I've ever seen. He grows practically no mane or tail either so I had to hog him and...uhhh...shave his tail? And have I mentioned how HORRIBLE he is to fit a saddle to? I mean, clearly I put this western saddle on him correctly and its the biggest I could find. Its a 4" seat! He's so fat I can't get the cinch around him either.



And I don't know about you guys but I think he has a jug head...


Worst part? HE THINKS HE'S A PUPPY OR SOMETHING!!!


Why I still love him: well, he put up with this... and me good thing he's not really a horse...he's almost as big as one now though! lol. (pics taken when he was 7 months old. He's 2 1/2 now)

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

I have one of those too! Here he is the day I made my first rope halter. Old lug didn't even appreciate it. He makes a terrible riding horse!

Willow has a huge flat mustang head along with a short neck and crooked legs.
Why I love her, she is smart, willing, loves her people, and has a very smooth trot.
smrobs and WesternRider88 like this.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Poor Clyde is what we call a 'family horse', his back is so long you can fit the whole family on him. Big huge hammer head, hardly any hip and post legged in the hind legs. But I love him, he can really travel some ground and will run to cattle.

I found the most unflattering picture of baby Hooey. This was the day I brought him home, of course all yearlings go through the uglies and he was standing in a hole, but yikes! LOL

I DON'T LEAD 'EM AND FEED 'EM, I RIDE 'EM AND SLIDE 'EM.

What do I love about him? Everything, naturally!

I thought you were saying "warthog" as a euphamism, but darn@! that horse looks exactly like a warthog!
