Conformation "flaws" you like?

I was reading up on conformation a little earlier today... and I saw a couple of things that I have to disagree with, because I actually LIKE that in a horse (I think it's cute... not ugly). Not something like cowhocks, or weak gaskins, or short in the girth... but something like a roman nose, or lop ears.

So... what are some SMALL conformation "flaws" that you actually like in a horse? Just wondering...

Sometimes I like a short back on a horse . . . . . Not really short backs but just a bit shorter than normal. It really depends on the horse most of the time but altough it doesn't make them the best to look at they tend to carry weight a bit better.

For some reason...I tend to be drawn to a thicker neck. I love a "beefy" horse. But then again...I like my men beefy too!!!!

I love roman noses. My goat has one and my first horse had one. I love swaybacks too because when you ride bareback they keep you in place

I like short backs, and roman noses.. to an extent.

I unlike most people, I actually prefer slightly longer backs. Much smoother, with the nice long, strides and a lot of flexibility. My old pony had a short back and a beautiful looking trot, but sitting it was almost impossible. It was so choppy.

I like them to be slightly cow hawked, I just find they can get down and get the job done!

I like short backs I feel like there a more comfrontable ride and not as bouncy :)

I think big ears are cute! Sometimes a really pudgy horse is adorable too.
