Rumonek: Oh, okay I admittedly don't know much about the "non-show" (endurance, racing, etc..) arabs. It's crazy how much the breed differs according to its purpose.

As far as colors go, I don't discriminate. I wouldn't hesitate to buy a horse just because of its color. Being human though, I am partial to some colors. Bay, mostly :)

LOL it's no problem.
All of my mares (minus the NSH) are race and endurance bred. I absolutely love it- pretty enough to do SHIH and MR Halter if I really wanted to, but ALL SPORT. Can't beat it IMO.

Im not big into the MR events, so a MR horse isn't what I am after :)
I think some of the MR Halter stallions are nice (like Omega for example) but do not like the extreme heads, long backs, flat table-top croups... all things that can attribute to difficulty performing.

I was always taught that table-top croups were desired among the endurance people because it gave the horse more stamina as opposed to steeper croups made for power...

Idk, that is just what I've heard/read, you're the one actually in the biz :)

I wouldn't believe that... the table toup croups dont allow for very good muscling and make weak hips and loins.

Oh, and on the subject of color, I LOVE color. I just made my dream a reality in purchasing a 53% Arabian Cremello colt, so he'll produce palomino, buckskin, and smokey black with my purebred Arabian mares every time. I'm pretty excited!

IMO colors like buckskin and palomino & cremello are "impurities" of the breed, and indicate cross breeding somewhere along the line. I've been reading too many of the old Arabian breeding manuals lately 0_o

It IS cross breeding- dilute (anything other than Black, Bay, Chestnut, and Grey) doesn't exist in the Purebred Arabians. My colt is 53% Arabian and will be bred to Purebred mares to produce registered HALF Arabians. They all will be dilute. The resulting foals will be about 76% Arabian.

I predominantly breed colored HALF Arabians, I enjoy my color, and enjoy my Arabians, so I breed for colorful half-Arabians with quality comming first, naturaly.

I suppose my favourite Arabian stallion, will always be Azh Naborr. (Naborr x Azhderiane) I watched as he was born, saw him almost every day for years and later bred my Al-Marah Rahcount daughter to him. A really tall boy - 16.1 I believe, he went on to sire over 300 offspring. Many made a name for themselves in the US and across the world.

It was a tragic situation, when all of Sam Azhderian's horses were dumped into an auction after he sold them. Luckily, my daughter and many others, got Azh Naborr, Azhdahar McCoy (The Real McCoy x Azhderiane) and many others, out of there before they ended up in a killer's hands.

There is a pic of Azh Naborr here..

Photo: AZHNABORR by *Naborr | Arabian Horse: *Naborr album | Hypoint | Fotki.com, photo and video sharing made easy.

He died in 2009 at the ripe old age of (I believe) 35 or so.

Ohh haha I thought you found a "pure arab" that was cremello.. ;p
I've never owned a half arab, but I've been around a few... mostly QH crosses.

Haha, nope :)
He's 53%... going to be getting some video this week, maybe I'll post it here on the forum.

I have never owned a Quarab before- rode one and that was it.

My favorites are:

The Goldolphin Arabian
The Black Stallion
Bask
I was flipping though a horse magazine I have and there was a beautiful chestnut stallion called Fire & Ice(I think that was his name and I think he is Arabian.)

And all the horses others have posted are beautiful!!
