Abejaruco, what a beautiful picture of a beautiful horse.  This breed is very attractive.

It is funny though, we call this breed of horse "Apaloosa", funny how languages call things differently.  Have a wonderful, beautiful day.  Cindi

hummm, this horse, is..ummm interesting :-D

apalusa - apaloosa, ok...call me naive, but these two words are ALMOST identical, at least pronouncing is (for me).

lagarto - alligator, also seems relatively close, probably from derives latin....

I was on a High School Rodeo Team and  my calf roping horse looked just like that one. When you nodded your head you had to pull him back or you would break the barrier and lose time, What a great horses this breed is.

Wow, thats such a coincidence seeing that horse!
Me and my friend Paul were going fishing Friday after work and I saw one with the same kind of spots!!.. I told Paul it was a "Dalmation Horse". I would've like to have this horse a couple of years ago because it would have matched my dog Annie(a Dalmation).
yalls friend,
john

what a breed.  my son had one for years.  we got him for free because his feet were so bad the vet wanted to put him down.  we took a chance on him and he turned out to be one of the best horses we ever owned.  i sold him a few years ago and he's still going strong for his owner.  they are great horses....but stubborn!  :-)
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

stubborn was an understatement most of the time.  head strong is was another word that came to mind.
