She's a gorgeous mare. Being mostly American Foundation/Polish bred, they tend to be more sturdy and not have the extreme dished faces you'll find on most Straight Eygptian Arabians.

If you're looking to do jumping, Dressage, or Sport Horse, I think these two sires definitely should be considered. Both are accomplished and absolutely stunning.

If you wanted to go Western, the Aladdinn/Bask lines cross well with Muscat and there's a few lovely son out there to choose from.

English Pleasure or Park I'd look at a stallion like Afire Bey V or IXL Nobel Express. Arabian Stallion IXL Noble Express

hey

Im not familiar withthe american lines, but "Crabbet bred" means any horse with a dash of crabbet breeding

Pure crabbet = 100% crabbet bred

Your girl looks alot like the crabbets we get in australia, but a bit finer (id say the "other" part fo her breeding)

And she is GORGEOUS! Don't worry about the head, it's much more refined then my horse's

PS more space in the head = more brains ;)

I've actually been eyeing Spirit Thyme. I think he's absolutely gorgeous. But I want to get as much information as possible, and look at several different stallions before settling on one. As soon as I can get some decent confo shots (hopefully this weekend), I'll post them up so you guys can pick apart her conformation as well.

Ya know, if your seriously looking to breed to an arab, there is a arab breeders forum. Spirit Thymes owner is on there and there are TONS of other studs advertised on there. It would be very benificial to at least take a look.
Here is a link directly to his thread.

There is no set in stone definition, although people seem to like to lump partial Crabbet horses under the term "Crabbet bred". She is no more Crabbet bred then she is Polish bred or Domestic bred. The technical blanket term would be Domestic, a blend of several lines. I would not consider a horse "Crabbet-bred" unless they had a minimum of 50% or more Crabbet blood.

well that would be nice wouldn't it? Australia is slowly bringing that a horse has to have a minimum of 12.5% arabian to be in the studbook - if it's taken this long to establish a definition for a partbred, i'd say a crabbet bred def will take even longer

There's a few crabbet supporter groups in australia, we're slowly seeing the inclusion of crabbet classes in a few of the bigger shows. The next one we're off to the minimum is 75% - one we did one awhile go was split into above 50% and 100% (which is a bit unfair for those of us with a horse coming in at over 95% )

That's awesome! I love Crabbet horses, and it's so disappointing to see the bloodlines disappearing. Growing up, our horses were all about 85% Crabbet and about 15% Egyptian, so they have a fond place in my heart!

Ditto what Chiilaa said, but also don't forget if they've been taken by a pro, most likely they've been photo shopped as well......Frequently the horses in the flesh don't resemble their pictures a whole lot.

Your mare is only 5 and her face will dry out a bit more which will enhance her already gorgeous dishy-ness. Is that a word? If not, it is now

You've already said you don't want to breed for a few years, that's good because the horse economy is tanked right now. A lot of people are cutting way back on the breeding if not getting out all together. Hopefully in a couple of years things will be better and make a foal worth something.

I would look for a stallion in the Sport Horse Division, there are some gorgeous ones out there, and I'd try to make sure he had a nice short back, longer legs and a LOT of hip on him, to compliment your mare.
