What does it mean when a guy says you're "built like a horse", (do I look like a horse)?

I was standing at the bus stop the other day and this guy just randomly came up to me and said "built like a horse, she's built like a horse" to me and was pointing at me but I am not fat. I love horses, don't get me wrong, and I sort of take this as a compliment because of this but I also am feeling kind of self-consious abou it. Is it because I workout a lot so my legs are kinda muscular? Is being compared to a horse a bad thing? Do I even look like a horse?

    • interesting, well now i can say I've heard the term before an not get offended haha thanks :)

    • haha you are welcome. who could have imagined its a good thing in another culture huh? but i think cultures are pretty much interconnected today and people always used to exchange cultural traits through the ages. what he said, its highly possible that was affected/borrowed by the greek phrase or another country's similar one... . have a great day ;)

    • haha this made me laugh thanks

  • Probably not the best way to put it, clearly, but it means that you're just built like a horse. Beautiful, elegant, strong, athletic/fit... I wouldn't take anything negative about this compliment, you're just reading way too much into it.

    • that makes me feel better an less horse-ish lol thanks

    • Haha glad to help and you are welcome :)

  • Built like a horse usually means she is big boned - big thighs and hips, especially. But, you? You are not at all "built like a horse".

  • My guess would be long legs? Or on the more negative side long face /: but I wouldn't worry as others have said you look great.
