    Ya, I just don't want to add another animal to the horse population when the economy is the way it is, and I can't guarantee that somethings not going to happen that will cause me to have to sell my horse. I can't make any real guarantees even in a good economy, because life does happen. When I breed her I want to make sure that I have plenty of money and time to give her the care that she needs while pregnant, and then for both once the baby's born. Not to mention, I want to make sure that she is worth breeding down the road. Show her, and see how she does then breed.

    So I have started training a 10 year old Magnum Psyche son, and a 2 almost 3 year old Padrons Psyche son, both stallions. I don't like the look of the Padron's Psyche son, even though I know he's young and still has growing to do, he's just too ganly, and he's not narrow at the chest, but his legs definitely get narrower the closer to the ground they get, not sure what type of conformation that would be called. But I REALLY like the look and so far the attitude of the Magnum Psyche son. He's 15 maybe 15.1 hands, built very similar to Saphira, and so far has a very sweet disposition. I've heard people who either REALLY like that line, or REALLY hate that line, and I really hadn't liked much of what I'd seen of those lines before. As soon as the mud clears up where the stallion is, I will get some conformation shots of him, and still need to get some of my horse, but just going off of pedigree, pretending that they produce at the least a decently conformed offspring, what do you think of the cross of those bloodlines. I'll also get more information about the stallion, next time I see the owner, and can get a look at his papers. He was used for 8 or 9 years as a breeding stallion in Scottsdale, owners retired and sold their stock, and the current owner bought this stallion. He calls him Little Magnum. Little Magnum doesn't like men (go figure), so I get to do a lot of work with him, see how well I can get him going, then see if he'll accept the owner. The biggest conformational thing I see with him, is that his front feet are very upright, (his back feet flare out on the outside a bit too), but I'm thinking that some of that is just that the farrier who is a guy wants to get in and out as fast as possible before Magnum goes after him or whatever he does when someone invades his space, so time will tell whether is conformation, or poor farrier care, and then of course seeing how is attitude changes as I do more with him, and ask more of him. I do not believe he was shown much if at all, but theoretically his foals are doing pretty well. Hopefully you stuck with me through this long winded post lol, and can give me an honest answer. Again, I'll post conformation shots of both of them as soon as possible, though I have no plans to breed any time soon, but would just like to get as educated as possible.

    I think she is really pretty and more what a working Arabian should be. By the way she does have some nice Polish lines about 41+% of *Bask and Aladdinn, but she is more Crabbet bred than anything about 46+% so that is probably why you were told she is Crabbet bred, although one could call her Polish too I used to do Arabian pedigree's so I know the lines. Although it used to be much easier to tell what an Arabian horses was, now they have Crabbet, Polish, Egyptian, Spanish, Russian and some have all those lines so it makes it more difficult...anyway back to your mare..What do "kind" or "look" of working/halter stallion do you want to breed her too? What color, size, what improvements do you want in her and what do you want to do with her foal?
    You can leave her in my corral any day!

    Check out the ABN network for advice. They're a great bunch of Arabian "nuts" that can help you alot with bloodlines and stallion suggestions.

    I know nothing about arabians, I am a qh girl myself, however she is an absolutely stunning horse. I love her color! :)

    Thanks for the advice. Unfortunately I have to sell her, because I just don't have enough money coming in to support having a horse, and give her the time of day she needs. I only get out once or twice a week, and that's just not fair to her as a young green horse. So if you know of anyone in the San Diego area looking for a nice Arabian mare, let me know.

    I'm sorry that you have to sell her. Try advertising her on the Arabian Breeders Network.

    I have to be an active forum member before I can post on ABN, so I'm working on that. I do have a question though. How much do I ask for her? I looked online in my area at Arabian mares for sale, of her age, with her amount of training or less, with similar bloodlines, and I got a few 10k+ horses, a bunch of 5k-7k, and one 3k. I don't want to ask too much for her, especially with the economy, but at the same time, I don't want to be asking the bottom of the barrel and only get the bottom of the barrel. She is going well under saddle. I was looking at doing maybe a couple walk trot classes at shows this year, she is solid at the walk, still occasionally will try to stop at the trot, but is definitely moving forward willingly. We are still working on developing the canter, as I've wanted to go slow with her, and build a good base. She is an Arab, so she does have her dramatic moments, but for the most part is very calm, has great ground manners, and listens very well. I spent a year getting her from unhandleable, to being ridden under saddle, and I want some compensation for the time that I've put into her, but obviously I also have to go with what people will pay in this economy. So any help is appreciated.
