You got one heckuva good deal!!!

Odd that the previous owner thought she was "too old", I am 56, ha, and I don't think I am too old. I know lady who was still training and riding warmbloods for dressage in her early 70's. In your case it worked out great for you, so that is awesome.

Keep us posted.

Your boy may fill out nicely yet, he's young. And as his training progresses he will muscle up. Yes, *Morafic was more of an ultra-refined horse.

Thanks again Remali for the info. You guys have been very helpful. And you've boosted my excitement over Riki. I already love him to pieces cause he's so affectionate. I should have gotten an arabian sooner. The only horse that can compare to the sweetness is my QH Jimmy, and I've had him since he was a baby.

The lady I was talking about also lived way way way out in the country, with no neighbors and no family to take care of her daughters if something happened to her. I'm just happy that I got Riki. I was afraid someone would buy him before I got the money for him.

Does the modern arabian horse magazine have good info in it? Is it worth subscribing to? Next paycheck I'm joining AHA and transferring Riki to my name, it's cheaper that way, right? Sorry for all the dumb questions, my boss is always saying I ask too many questions. *shrugs*

You might be better off searching online, ancestor by ancestor. Tons of info on the net, whole websites dedicated to SE's.
And by all means keep asking questions

The new Arabian horse magazines, sadly, seem to be mainly photos. I agree with deserthorsewoman, online searches. And, check out some of the Arabian breeders forums too, tons of info there.

One thing about Arabians, you will find that they are very people-oriented, they love their humans.
