Don't even allow them to affect your mood. Their opinion is only as valuable to you as you allow it to be. Someone thinks Sky is ugly? Their opinion, and to me it doesn't matter. His soul is beautiful, that's all that counts to me.

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. :)

You have a gorgeous mare, and she certainly seems to hold a lot of love for you in the photo you shared with us, neither of which is something anyone should have the ability to make you feel bad about.

The path is different for you and me, but the journey begins in the heart.

We used to have a miniature pony at my therapeutic barn with one eye...everyone called him ugly. I think one kid's parents asked for him to be removed from the farm, said he was scaring the kids or some similar bull. Nobody could see past that missing eye and realize he was really a smart, affectionate baby.

Btw, no one just makes a comment that your horse is ugly just out of the blue. Only jealous, insecure, and low-down people make comments like that. Don't let her bother you - you know your horse is beautiful, and you don't need either her or our opinion on the matter!

I have to admit - that horse is more beautiful than all my horses put together! haha, one looks like an oversized and lopsided teddy bear, one is a white wooly mammoth, and the other has long hair and the cutest eyes but so so green and curious about every darn thing! but i love em all the same!

For one, I don't believe that ANY horse is ugly, and I most definitely don't think my baby girl is ugly either! So when she blurted out her arrogant mind vomit, what did I do? Nothing .... I was in shock!

What would you have said and/or done?

Here is my BEAUTIFUL girl xx

Like the saying goes, "opinions are like butt holes, everyone has one". Dont worry what anyone has to say, their opinion really doesnt matter.

...and they all stink LOL.

Whenever someone randomly walks up and says something snarky to me, I can't help but be snarky back while laughing my butt off at them, but I don't let what they said bother me later on.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

Opinions are only important if you give that person value. If you don't, then they can think what they like.

why do you care?

Your horse is beautiful so just ignore small minded people that feel the need to bring you down to their level. My gelding was labeled as being 'as ugly as sin' by a previous owner and I think its absolute rubbish. Yes, he has big bald patches on his face from severe sunburn in the past but I think he is stunning - bald patches and all. Brush it off and move on.

What would I have done? I'd have walked off laughing! A lot of times people are just trying to get a reaction anyway, and it annoys the crap out of them when you are unfazed by it.

On the other hand there are many people that don't seem to understand how rude something like that is. I have a Chinese Crested, so not everyone's cup of tea, and to be quite honest when she needs a groom she is a bit homely, but all groomed up I think she's adorable. Any who, you'd be amazed at how often people think nothing of telling me how ugly she is (she's been compared to a drowned rat more times then I can count, which doesn't make any since, she's a mostly hairless dog, but does have hair on her tail (and head, and feet), which a rat does not). I understand that not everyone is going to find her attractive, and that is fine, and if I ask that's one thing, I would expect them to be honest, but otherwise why say anything?

And I also have to say, saying "Your horse is cute, for a bay that is I just don't like bays", is not a compliment, maybe they didn't say your horse was ugly, but they did say she's an ugly color which is about the same thing. Another one of those, why say anything? Maybe I'm off on that, but that's the way I would take it if someone said it to me (and actually I did have someone tell me he didn't like grullas (like my mare) because they looked like their face and legs were rotting), but in his defense he didn't know I owned a grulla! And I didn't take offence.
