    Talking He likes them spotted.

    For years I've been trying to lure my husband into horses with no result.
    Weirdly enoguh, he did have enough contact with them as a kid. His cousin breeds and sells horses for a living. He rode a few times bareback too.

    It's just that he looks at them as simply farm animals and is getting bored to death around them. Not scared, not agressive, just finds the whole equestrian world quite boring.

    However considering he:
    - endures my endless horse talks and even manages to appear interested or nod often
    - takes me back and forth to and from riding
    - does his best to spend his time counting his fingers or taking sky photo's during my 1-2 hours of trail riding

    ...I think it's ok.

    However! He finally said something about some horses! He pointed some photo of a paint on this forum "That one is very pretty"
    Then when we arrived at the riding center he ignored the stunning Friesians, didn not flinch passing the cuddly ponies, didnt even check the adorable foals but stopped and looked for quite few minutes at an arabian mix, white / chestnut (I am sure there is a color pattern, I have no idea which one is that)

    I tried again without much hope luring him in a conversation last time:

    "Soo...do you fave a favourite horse breed?"
    "Yes"
    "which one?"
    "This one" - points at a pic of an overo QH on this forum
    "Zomg quarter horses? I like them too, look at the nice muscles and the head and.."
    Then he points at a spotted saddlebred
    "And this"
    And then some colored draft
    "And this one"
    Passes over some solid colored QH's
    "Not these"
    "Hang on. Which breed is your favourite after all?"
    "The spotted breed."

    Awh. Wel I guess it's a start

    My Ex loved Friesians, There was one boarded once where I keep my horse and he always had his mane in individual braids and he said that the horse looked like Bob Marley.

    SOME PROGRESS IS BETTER THAN NONE!! So wierd, my husband only likes solid colored horses. I predicted he would like Quarter Horses, Quarter Horse/TB crosses, or Saddlebreds. Which is what he likes, but I thought for sure he would like paints or Appys.. Which I like paints just not too big on Appys.. He HATES paints. He thinks they are ugly?! Otherwise he likes horses, he just has something against duo colored horses, I guess!

    How big is your husband? My husband only likes bigger breeds, I think because he is stocky himself.

    LOL!! A rash?! Hahaha! I was describing this beautiful paint I saw to my husband and he's like, "You mean people like those ones with more than one color?" He really doesn't like appys, though, not even blanket appys!

    I guess I just don't get men!!

    Um for him there are only:
    Small horses
    Big horses
    Pretty horses (colored)

    Made me quite proud when he watched over my shoulder some hiperflexed dressage horse video and asked "Why are they all making their horses look like question marks and kiss their chests, that's so ugly"

    However, the downside. When watching some western video series about a lady Lauren taming and training a mustang he asked
    "Why can't she just do it like my cousin?"
    "How?"
    "Just strap the saddle, get on the horse, hold on, get off, job done"

    .... dang

    Me and my BF have the same opinion on horse colour, solid all the way.
