If you were a horse...

What breed would you be? What would you look like?

On a more morbid note, based on the injuries you've had in your life as a person and assuming you as a horse would have had the same injuries, would you even be alive if you were a horse?

Like if you broke your leg (so your horse self broke their leg) would you be alive?

I don't know, I was bored, so I figured I'd ask.

I would be a bay with no white. Nothing about me would stand out and riders would comment on my great work ethic and heart.

No real illness or injury. I just keep plugging away!

I broke my wrist once... so I imagine I'd be put down by now.

I'm not sure what I would be, maybe an Arab because I seem highly strung and neurotic, but too lazy to be a Thoroughbred

I'd be a bay with blue eyes, thoroughbred (I'm tall and skinny and I do cross country haha)

Umm, I cracked my chin open once, so idk, and sprained my wrist once, which would make me lame for a while, but that's about it! I wouldn't be dead I don't think hehe

I would probably be a ****y mare though, I have little patience when it comes to people :p

perfection existed, it would have four legs

I would a Gypsy Vanner. A pretty one!!! lol

Well I've never been seriously injured, but I did got hit by a car in Feb. I just had a really scratched up sorry leg. It actually looks like a bear clawed my leg more then a car. I made suggestions that it would make a good bar story.

I imagine I'd be some kind of heavy horse, perhaps a Percheron. I'd probably be bay, with flashy white legs - my legs never tan, so white legs FTW!

I'd probably be put down by now, or be a loving paddock companion what with chronic back pain, having sprained my ankle more times than I can count and fracturing my elbow.

I'd probably be some kind of an arab, or a dainty pony who imagines he's a warmblood. I'd also be quite cranky and asocial towards people, mostly wanting to be left alone and to do only what's interesting. Honestly, I'd probably be a pasture puff - with a deformed hip, a heart disease, bad vision, weak back and some neurological issues...

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

I would most likely be some color with light mane (palomino or silver dapple etc), flashy (so probs with white stockings too) and medium build - some kind of heavier type warmblood - like and Oldenburg, durable animal.

I have not broken anything, but I would be a nuisance for my owners to keep me checked for stomach issues and frequent adjusting by chiro, due to my back problems, which can be managed well..

But because I am so durable, strong, willing, curious and half the time obedient They do anything for me...

And of course, the looks *wink*

I'd be my mare. A very chunky bay warmblood with socks, a star and a snip. I'd be athletic enough to be competitive in upper level local dressage, but not much more than that. I wouldn't be quiet enough for a beginner, not because I'd be spooky or hot, but because I'd be cranky and stubborn. I probably would have either retired early from cracking a bone in my lower back or put down from chronic hoof issues in my near side front hoof (I broke my finger ages ago and still have problems with it).

...Every rider has that one horse that changes everything about them...
