Rumonek: I hope you're not offended by this, but I really don't think I like his head :/ his eyes seem small or something. It could be the picture though, because the filly has a nice head :)

I hope to see more black horses in the ring, though I don't think anyone should breed for color. Actually, I wonder if the actual arabian people (from the desert lol) would like darker horses, since they hold heat more? Idk though cause most of the Babson Egyptians are darker colors... ;P

Doesn't offend me, he's not mine ;)
He has a gorgeous, very expressive eye. It is extremely difficult to get good photos of black horses faces- their eyes blend right in. I love his head- it's refined, triangular, and not freaky in any way. If you don't like his head you probably wont like any of my horses heads lol

The filly isn't his daughter, I'll post a photo of his daughter below.
Actually, it is said that the blacks were killed at birth because it was believed they were evil.

Here is his daughter


Of course she's blinking in this photo



FWIW
These horses are race horses- they arent bred for "pretty" faces or big poppy eyes. I love their classic looks

I don't know much about Arabs but if I was going to breed to any stud, I would pick the stud that belongs to my friend Kathryn. I don't know anything about his breeding. The only thing that I do know about him is that he has the most amazing temperment, he has won a buttload of endurance and CTR competitions (most recently a 60 mile CTR this summer/fall), and passes his temperment on to all of his babies. Plus, he isn't a dinky looking thing that I would have to worry about breaking a leg on.

Actually for the most part black and very dark colored Arabians were not considered the ideal. Greys were highly favored over most other colors and in some tribes any black foals born that didn't grey out were culled. That's why it's not as easy to find nice black Arabians today.

I wish I could find my source for this. I read it somewhere and it was also discussed in one of my classes (I'm an Equine Science major), how the Bedouin preferred greys. I believe the reason they did not like black horses was due to a superstition of some sort. I'll see if I can find it for you.

Very true. It's not the same nowadays though- grey is the hardest color to sell. I imagine it is because it is the most common color in the breed.

They didn't like blacks because they thought they were evil- a devils horse.

I don't mind any colour, a good horse is a good horse. I have to admit that dark mahogany (almost black) and grey seem to be the colours that catch my eye in the ring.
