    Ha ha, On that topic I have to share a quick off topic story. I was once doing a training demonstration with the dogs (I have Rottweilers) after the demo, there was a question and answer period and one man came up to meet the dogs and chat further about training his own Rottie. While he was chatting I told my dog to Platz (take his place laying down) and the guy gets this funny look on his face and says "You speak GERMAN to your dog?" I said "yes" and he says "No wonder my dog won't listen to me, I have been speaking English to a German dog." I was like

    To his credit, he looked like this after just a minute or two and then said "I can't believe I thought that, even for a second."

    Sorry, I still find that funny. Carry on....

    I have owned a Appy, and although I don't believe his temperment was due to his breed, or colour, he was the worst horse I have ever owned in my life time. He was a truly dangerous horse, waiting to get someone hurt. When being out in the pasture with him, you could be brushing him off, or just patting him good morning, and one second he would be fine and happy, the next second his ears are pinned, and he lunges into you biting/kicking. He was bi polar, through seconds of the day it seemed. No amount of groundwork/time could fix his temperment issues. Sent him to two trainers, didnt change him abit. I finally decided it must have been some sort of mental issue... A few of the gears in his head must have been malfunctioning. Never the less, he is a pasture puff now at a trainers.

    ANYWAY (sorry^^^) I have heard the saying about the white feet, and about the red horses... I own a red horse now, love of my life! Best red mare in the world. I have also heard that black horses seem to be rather touchy and have a tendencie to rear... Which just seems silly... It sounds like the person who made that up watched to much of "The Black Stallion"...

    I hadn't heard any of the saying about palominos before -- pretty interesting stuff.

    Appy eyes sure will freak out folks who are only used to looking at other horses' eyes. My Appy mare is a good girl most of the time, just a little on the opinionated side once in a while.

    According to someone I know...

    All buckskins buck. Never met one that didn't.

    Well, someone recently refered to my pintaloosa over and over as an appaloosa. It wasn't a funny thing to say about her color, but I am not a fan of appies and I think they are a little squirely.
