Well I must hate horses then, because I do in fact not see all horses as equal, and I do in fact think some horses are fugly. People have preferences. Why is it even a big deal if someone likes bays? People like different colors.
I agree with smrobs. If you letting this little tiny comment run your life and cause you so much distress that's your problem, not on anyone else. EVERYBODY has preferences. How does that mean you "don't love horses?" How does that make sense? You can't decide if you love a horse's "soul" off of a PICTURE.
I have an appy. I have had SO MANY people tell me "She's cute... For an appaloosa." And I actually appreciate it as a complement! Someone who doesn't like appies thinks mine is cute? She must be awesome!
I guess what I'm trying to say is I think you're completely overreacting. If this is how you react when a single person makes a passing comment you need to steel yourself up, because once you go out and about you'll find all sorts of horse preferences in the horse world. Judging other people and saying they must not actually love horses because they thought one they saw was ugly is absolutely asinine.
I didnt say you can't think a horse is ugly, I just said it shouldn't matter. I agree, I have seen ugly horses, but the point is: I don't care because I look at what they have going on inside.
