    He's gorgeous!! Reminds me a lot of *El Mareekh.

    He does not appear to be swaybacked though.

    I would say, the only thing you should know.... when training Arabians, they are very sensitive and very smart, they are very fast learners and will do anything for you. But they won't respond to harsh training, not saying you or another trainer would be harsh, just an FYI.

    Riki with the saddle. He was a little upset with me because the other two horses were eating hay and he was tied up

    He's just stunning!! You are lucky, he's a very nice horse, and extremely well-bred.

    Not sure why you think he is swaybacked tho, he definitely isn't. He looks very well-built and has nice substance. I would take him in a minute!! Keep us posted on how he is doing. I love him!

    Guess how much I paid for him.

    Well, hmmm.... that is hard to say, only because considering the economy right now... But, Arabians with nice bloodlines like that, and especially those that are pure (as in pure Polish or straight Egyptian) usually bring a higher price. And just by looking at his pictures I'd say he is really put together very nicely, he would have brought at least a few thousand as a green broke gelding, if not more.

    Did he come from a breeder, or someone who had horses as a hobby/pleasure? I sure like him.

    *El Mareekh was very highly thought of. If I remember right, he died tragically, and way too soon, from blister beetles (blister beetles in the hay).... I think.... I should look that up. His owners had previously lived in WI (where I live), I had been to their farm many years ago, before they got *El Mareekh.

    As Remali said, Arabs are quite sensitive, very intelligent, and highly curious. He's a very pretty boy! Congratulations :)

    The lady I bought him from bought him when she was with her husband, thinking he would help break him. Then the guy left her, and she couldn't break him by herself, being 50 years old. The only reason he's as trained as he is is because of the lady's two daughters. I bought him for a whopping 425 bucks, but adding in gas it was around 600.
    He is such a sweet boy. I sat in his stall while he was eating his hay earlier and read to him out loud two chapters of King of the Wind. One of my fav books from when I was a kid.
    And thank you Remali and Prariedesertlady for all the info! I'll probably have more questions as we go on. Thanks Little Jane! I'm pretty lucky to get him.

    I was looking at the pic of Morafic, the one that shows his whole body. And the body itself looks a lot like Riki. The really deep chest, his withers are higher though, and the strangely small looking hindquarters (to me at least, compared to the QH I'm used to). I need to take some side shots without the saddle to show y'all. His chest is really narrow when your looking at him face on, but from the side it looks like... I don't know how to explain it.
