    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.

    When I was thinking of purchasing my baby girl, she was compared to a mule by the BO where I was thinking of placing her. She proceeded to ask what I was paying for her, and when I told her she said "Well, that's more than they'd get from the meat man".
    ....

    Another forum decided to rip her, and me apart. Her for being so fricken hideous, and me for possibly being a troll...a horse newb even DARE LOOKING at young horses. They said that I'd make her into something only fit for the meat wagon!

    You know what? Like they say, opinions are....well...everyone has them. And some of them are just crap. I can't tell you I'd have been nice to that girl...I'm still somewhat upset about what people said about my baby girl two years ago! You know what though? In the end, the personality and heart of a horse count way more than how aesthetically pleasing it is for a selected few who think their dung smells like roses. Don't listen to that girl...for her to have such a petty fricken thing to lash out at you with, she must have some issues of her own.

    This was my baby when I went to see her:


    And this is her now:


    She may be a big ugly horse, but she's my sweet, steadfast, sturdy little girl!

    Don't let comments like that bother you. I've heard ones like that and worse about me and my horse more times than I care to remember.... My favorite response if I absolutely must say something, is this:

    Yes. My friend has an ugly horse. He's a mustang, roan with a chestnut head, honestly looks like some mad scientist did a head transplant. But he is great under saddle, solid as a rock, and quiets down skittish horses just by his example.

    Now me, I have the opposite problem from the OP. Sort of a reverse "Beauty and the Beast" complex, 'cause without even trying I manage to adopt the most beautiful horses & dogs. The contrast is somewhat startling, I think

    If your horse is ugly, then what is mine!?


    In all seriousness, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    Well I think the horse is fine...but I have some strong reservations about the pervert commenting on your photo.

    Thenakedguy and his comments are so wrong to be saying to you.
