    Hah! A good book lead, thanks! No, this is from King of the Wind, by Marguerite Henry, painting by Wesley Dennis. One of my favorite childhood books, and my Arab, Djinn, was marked just like this horse, "Sham." (from the Arabic 'Shams', or 'Sun.')

    That reminds me of my old boarding place. One of the girls who helped out there upon seeing my horse and myself for the first time blurted out "what a fat ole mare!".
    I mean really would she have said that about my child?
    I laughed and explained she is not fat, she is big-boned ;)
    Funny thing is, you would think my mare understood her because she tried to bite her several times and could not tolerate her cleaning her stalls.....

    Guess I am used to that too. I too had my Saddlebred horses at a Quarter horse barn for a short bit (about 3 weeks was all I could stand) During that time the incompetent fools allowed one of my mares out of the barn and I found her running along side the highway. Almost every single day that I was out there someone would make a rude or nasty comment about how my horses looked. My horses were beautiful examples of their breed. They were gorgeous but they were not Quarterhorses so the small minded folks at that barn couldn't see it.

    I am often amazed at how small minded and rude people can be. If something isn't a replica of what they have or like, it is ugly? Really? What a bunch of bunk that is. I think if a person truly LOVES horses, then they should at the very least not make nasty commentary on individuals that do not flip their skirts. Just because you don't want the horse yourself doesn't mean it isn't perfect for someone else. Those nasty comments are only designed to hurt someone. What weight do you put on anyone who enjoys hurting others? For me, those types of opinions count for nothing.

    I couldn't see the pictures of your horse but I am certain it is beautiful because a horse is beautiful.

    Don't listen to people. I had Martha Josey tell me my horse was ugly at the nbha world show years ago. I didn't say anything, I was in too much shock that she was so rude. Sure, my mare isn't pretty n especially back then when she wasn't fully grown, but we got the best revenge………we beat Martha's time :)

    I loved that book! I was going through my TWH gelding's pedigree the other day. I went way, way back and was excited to see "The Godolphin Arabian" listed several times. I know many, many horses are descended from him, so it's nothing super "special", but it really made the 9-year-old girl in me happy to see. :)

    I can't see the original photo that started this thread, so I can't comment on it. Just remember that people that make such rude, unsolicited comments are unhappy people themselves. I feel bad for them. No happy, confident person would go out of their way to say something like that directly to an owner unsolicitedly.

    Thanks for your comment. I had to delete the photo because some creep was making weird comments on it!

    I can't see your photo, but I am positive your girl is lovely :)

    I've gotten a couple of comments about Sam (he's nice if you're into that coloring, he's cute for a medicine hat...) and I have to resist rolling my eyes. My friends can call Sammy goofy looking all they want and I laugh with them, but if someone needs to say an animal is ugly with anything other than teasing affection, she must be a pretty miserable person. I find it confusing, but not upsetting. I'd just make a joke :)

    Wow! Some people can say some really mean things when they are actually envious or jealous. Take what they say with a grain of salt. I can't see your picture of your horse but I am sure he/she is beautiful. T

    I would come back with something like "Thank you for your opinion. If you paid my feed/board bill it might actually have some credibility." Sounds like an immature brat and nothing to take to heart.

    Couldn't view the picture but I love bays!
