Chubbypony- do you have another horse next to her? Lizzy has finally calmed down enough she can go in by herself. She used to body slam the walls and door and completely freak out. She now realizes noone can take her food and she stays warm and dry lol so she loves it now.

Justimagine- that is a cute picture. But yes the cost is why I can't show right now. There are dressage shows that are held at our arenas so I might get to do those but I can't afford the clothes yet lol.

Saranda I love the energetic horses as well. Lizzy will get all next week off because it will be so cold. So she will be a spitfire when I get to get on her again.

My bf wants an Appy as well and he is determined to eventually have one lol. I told him only if it's a leopard appy as I just adore them.
I had a friend in high school who was into team penning. I'd LOVE to get a horse that could do the reigning required to be any good at that. If I had a horse that I could use for roping and penning, I'd be in heaven. And i'm with you on the leopard Appys, they're my favorite. Friend of mine sent me a picture of an Appy/Gypsy cross. He had the leopard markings, and solid build of an appy, but the mane, tail, and feathering of a gypsy. He was pretty.

Welcome to the forum. I'm not sure what the carrot game is, but I'm pretty sure I there is a way to turn it off in your profile somewhere. I think I did that because I don't see them anymore.

Haha yea we would be a ****show lol. She doesn't always turn or stop but she loves to chase things lol.

That would be one pretty horse. I just hate the appys that have the sad mane and tail.

My only grudge about appys is the mane and tail... Other wise they are pretty cool with their unique set of spots.

I figure if a girl wants to be a LEGEND, she should just go ahead and be one. ~Calamity Jane

I absolutely love appys! They're so pretty =] I'd love to own one some day. I even have a tattoo of an appy on my ribs, haha.

I'm mixed on appys. Some I've seen look really neat and have really cool spotting patterns, however, the lack of mane and tail on some of them kind of turns me off along with the mottling around the eyes and nose. I know not all appys have that, but I don't like the ones that do! Just a personal preference of course. Looks aside though, the vast majority that I've known have been very versatile, all around good solid horses. And personality wise, I've never met one I didn't like.

I'm with you on the mottled look.. My favorite color of horse is a sorrel... But I do like the spots...

Here is a 28 year old mare that my sister rode for a summer. She was still going strong, but we didn't push her too hard.



Not a hint of being sway back. She is still alive and living a good life three years later.

And yes my brother is kind of crazy! He's a monkey that pretty much can ride anything. It's not fair. LOL!

I'm a fan of sorrels too. My very first horse was a sorrel and I've had a soft spot for the colour ever since!

That's amazing that that horse was 28 in the picture. Some horses are just lucky to live long with minimal problems. My sister's horse (below) will be 29 this spring and she's still an annoying pest as if she were a yearling. She too isn't sway-backed or presenting many problems that come with old age. It's not the best picture of her, but currently all I have. Of course, being a grey, she insists on being filthy at all times.

One of the horse's who is boarded in the paddock with my Arab is around 35ish, and is an ex hunter/jumper. He's also an appy =] I can't imagine how gorgeous he was back in the day, he's even so cute now for an old man, haha.
