...I looked at the monitor, slackjawed, for a full minute....
What on earth???
Beautiful, yet positively arresting....looks like a horse, yet almost prehistoric, and somehow, has a.... human countenance???
After that mind-swirling minute, I decided he was magnificent
I'll be the dissenter. Personally, I think he is butt ugly. Cremellos just creep me out with those pale blue eyes and that big ol' Roman nose just says jughead to me.
Have to agree with your post. I don't mind a slight Roman nose, but that is just a little to exaggerated for my taste. I can live without that color, although if he was a golden palomino or a grey, I might could overlook the nose. That skin color is prone to some serious burns and after owning two light skinned horses, I swore that would be the last time I had anything but dark skinned. One of my light skinned horses actually had to be put down due to a SCC cancer.
Don't get confused between my personality & my attitude. My personality is who I am, my attitude depends on who you are.
It's kind of surprising that so many of you like the Roman nose. I was always taught that a Roman nose was a sign of a cold blooded horse, a jughead and one that lacked sensitivity and intelligence. Probably all old cowboys' tales but I just can't overcome my prejudice.
