Ugly horses
 
Okay, we all know that some of us have them :wink: LOL. So, before anyone gets their panties in a twist, just remember that this is all in good fun. Don't use anyone else's horses, only your own.

Let's see your ugly horses. Tell us what about them you think is ugly, and tell us why you love them anyway.

I'll start :D

This is Bessie, she's an 11 year old Belgian mare.

Why she's ugly: Big clunky head, moose nose, mule ears that constantly hang straight out to either side, super short thick neck.

Why I love her anyway: She has the best mind. No matter what you ask her to do or whether she's ever done it before, she always tries to please and stays calm. She's also a calming influence on her driving partner, John, who is much hotter blooded. Also, she gave me a wonderful foal who has grown into a fantastic young horse with his momma's temperament and, thankfully, his Daddy's head LOL.

Talyn: coming 2 year old grade pinto filly.

Why she's ugly: Unrefined head, prominent ewe neck, long back, long pasterns, wonky hind legs.

Why I love her anyway: She's smart...maybe too smart LOL. She takes everything I throw at her in stride and gains confidence every day. She's sweet and seeks me out for scratches in all her favorite places. She's very sensible and isn't prone to panicking, in spite of her feral breeding and upbringing.

I don't think ALL of my filly is ugly... But her neck makes her look like a llama, does that count?! I really don't like her ewe neck. Hoping she grows out of it! At least it's not THAT obvious when her head isn't up...

LOL, love this idea!

Kenzie fits this group....for now. I'm hoping there is a beautiful swan underneath the... well, current funky looking yearling. Every now and then though, I see a glimpse of the potential beautiful mare she can be.

Why she's ugly: Her neck is ultra short and thin, she has huge shark fin withers, her legs are pencil thin, and she has so many scars (many aren't her fault...but may are. You're looking at the worlds clutziest horse right here. She hurts herself on sharp air molecules) that you could play connect the dots with them. She also has a habit (not pain related that the vet or chiro can tell) of standing as awkwardly as possible when the camera shows up. Her favorite pose is the giraffe necked, splayed legged, gawking faced pose.

Her famous pose : I think she believes its attractive. Its not. haha.

Lucky for her, she's so ugly that she's cute...most of the time! LOL her nicknames are "skinny butt" and "noodle pony" though, rarely Kenzie which is her actual name xD

Grand - 3yr old.
Why is he ugly: He has got a steep shoulder, big head (jughead) droopy look on his face half the time, and always shows his ribs.. Also a "roman nose" in a way - it is not classical - as the whole face would be bent outward, but just the nose.
Why I love him anyway: he is just awesome, learns fast, respects me, wants to be with me, nickers every time I show up near the pastures, comes to me when I call, acts like a huge puppy, and is extremely sweet. And is shaping out to be a very nice horse.. with that very handsome looking face that looks smaller already (proportions getting fixed)

All skinny and fugly months and months ago..

Typical droopy face with the nose visible clearly!

But when I look at him being like this, I am totally in love..

Llama, Shoebox? I bought myself a warthog last year. This is my rescue, Merlin, not long after he arrived:

What do I love about him? Everything, naturally!

Cherrij 10-29-2013 05:16 PM

Forgot to add. He isn't even the "right color" :D:D:D:D He gets picked on every day, by his buddy, by me and his buddy's owner :D For everything - droopy face, doped look in his eyes, being all weird, for being the wrong color, for being such a baby etc :D

When I saw the title to this thread I'm like oh I got to tell a robs about it and then I saw you started it all I could think of is the one horse you had that I asked if it had a nice personalitylol

Endiku 10-29-2013 05:33 PM

oh my GOODNESS. Send me Merlin please. I want a warthog pony!!!

I realized I didn't write why I still love Kenzie...oops xD

I still love her because she has such a forgiving personality. She's been through a ton of stuff caused by people but she still loves human company. She isn't smart in the sense of self-preservation but she learns very quickly when she is taught something and she doesn't forget what she has learned.

Oh and apparently she's so smart she has learned to open gates. She let herself and her two new friends out into my friend lawn yesterday. Wonderful...haha

Name: Sky-dolph
Why he's ugly: Big ol thick and short antlers, bright pink squishy nose, super fat like he's had too many carrots, wide eyed look, awkward racing stripes on his cannon bones, big red butt
Why I love him anyway: He puts up with my shennanigans...

I LOVE this thread :D

Pickles WAS ugly:

http://i133.photobucket.com/albums/q...cii/sugar3.jpg

but she grew up pretty nice. at the time she was a fuzzy, brown, gangly, skinny necked, pot bellied little thing. I didn't have much hope. But she proved me wrong(thankfully). I would have loved her any ways, for her wonderful

I've gotten really into photography, and discovered a good picture can make any horse look amazing, and a bad one can make any horse hideous.

for example, this is a picture I look of what is undoubtedly the ugliest horse on the farm. thin, ewe neck, coarse ugly head, no hind end, terrible top line, pot belly
