I don't even play Minecraft PC that much, and I'm running a March update on my xbox, so I never noticed. However, upon finding this out, the new horse textures just seem lazy. I like the old ones better.

I just took the Minecraft Noob test! Check out what I scored. Think you can beat me?!
Now, maybe I'm biased against horses since I never use them, (they wander off if you don't keep them locked up, they're more complicated than the other animals and it's easier to just build around nether portals) but I prefer the 1.13 model. While horses in real life have iconic legs, I don't think that warrants having a super-different model from every other mob.
That being said, it does fit their complicated mechanics, but maybe I just don't feel like a detailed model is worth it for a mob I don't ever use.
I get offtopic a lot, be warned. I also often mention a Minecraft clone called Minetest. The clone is nowhere near playable with it's default game in my opinion, but it's at least the start of a good open-source voxel rendering engine, and maybe one day it might be decently playable.
