Lets see those UGLY horses.
There was a thread like this a long time ago but I enjoyed it. I want to see pictures of everyone's ugly horses (or what you see as ugly anyway). It can either be due to a conformational fault or just more of a vanity thing.

Only one rule. Must be your horse/horse that you lease/horse that you ride in lessons/etc. No various pix from the internet.

Here are my 2 ugly monsters.

Koda: 6 year old BLM mustang

And Bessie: 7 year old Belgain

Heh heh, I liked this thread to! I think it's a good trait when people can admit their horses aren't what most would call "aesthetically pleasing" and recognize them as respected members of their community regardless. I get tired of people always going "Oooo, the PURTY HORSES!"

As a note, maybe it's a good pic, but I think Koda is pretty darn decent looking! A bit thin in the neck, but nice hindquarters!

Here are my two:

Sunrae Playboy I loved this boy to death, and ironically I don't think he had "bad" conformation per say, he was actually a very lovely horse - if he was a Quarter Horse! I actually had people flat out call me a liar for saying he was purebred Arabian and if I hadn't of witnessed his birth myself, I may have been inclined to agree with 'em!

Atom Zena Zierra's dam. This mare was a spitfire to the end, she could out-ride me any day of the week and be raring to go the next morning while I was nursing my aches and pains! She never quit and she excelled at everything she did, but lining her up for a confo shot wasn't one of her better qualities! :lol:

* This is my "ugly" Molly. I loved her though she was the most truly difficult animal ever and I was too young to be able to train her properly. She was one of those "pretty form a distance" kind of girls. She had a huge head, bony rump, hunters bump, and wonky knees. She had been used as a saddle bronc before we got her and it showed on her too.

Yeah, you might also want to add that they need to explain what they think makes the horse ugly to them...

^^ That's a good point Honeysuga.

Koda is an example of perfectly awful conformation. All his sizes are completely disproportionate. His neck, back, and legs are incredibly short while his head and feet are ridiculously big. *I think that is why his neck looks so skinny in that pic*. It really isn't, it is just really short and with that huge head with a moose nose attached on the end of it.....

Bessie really isn't so bad in the body, other than the fact that she is still carrying around most of her baby fat from almost 5 months ago. Her head though is just horrible. Long and big with big droopy ears and a very pronounced moose nose.

I love and miss this horse to death. He passed away on May 23 of this year. :(
I don't think he was ugly but he had the weirdest withers and ewe neck. You see the bottom of his neck where it connects to the chest? That was from a collision with a pipe fence when he was young (or so I was told). I had him about four years before he died of internal bleeding due to a nail puncturing his stomach.:-(

His legs and hock look off in this. He actually had nice straight legs. It was just that he was standing weird in this photo. He was looking at the horse eating llama the neighbors just brought home and stopped dead to stare.

Oh and that odd dark stains around his mouth would be from molasses.

Yeah, those are some funny withers...

Oh this is so mean :p

This is ace. I guess I wouldn't call her "ugly" per say... but sure wouldn't call her pretty!

Horse that I used to ride. Her name was Brianna. I think she looked like a deer. Her back legs were skinny lookng and she was an extreme curly so she didn't have a mane or tail. She was a sweetheart though.
